2 Peter 1:19-21 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

19 And we have a firmer word of prophecy, to which ye giving attention do well, as to a lantern that giveth light in a dark place, till the day begin to give light, and the day star spring in your hearts.

20 And first understand ye this thing, that each prophecy of scripture is not made by proper interpretation; [First understanding this thing, that each prophecy of scripture is not made by proper, or own, interpretation;]

21 for prophecy was not brought any time by man's will, but the holy men of God inspired with the Holy Ghost spake.

2 Peter 1:19-21 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

19 We have also a right sure word of prophecy, to which, if you take heed as to a light that shines in a dark place, you do well, until the day dawns and the day star arises in your hearts.  20 And first understand this: that no prophecy in the scripture has any private interpretation. 21 For the scripture never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but [h]holy men of God spake as they were [i]moved by the holy Ghost.
