15 and regard the (A)patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also (B)our beloved brother Paul, (C)according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of (D)these things, (E)in which there are some things that are hard to understand, which the untaught and (F)unstable distort, as they do also (G)the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 You therefore, (H)beloved, knowing this beforehand, (I)be on your guard so that you are not carried away by (J)the error of [a](K)unscrupulous people and (L)lose your own [b]firm commitment, 18 but grow in the grace and (M)knowledge of our (N)Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (O)To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
