II Kepha [Peter] 1:1-8
1 Simon Kepha, a servant and apostle of Yahshua Messiah, to those who have obtained the same precious faith with us, through the righteousness of Yahweh our Father, and our Savior, Yahshua Messiah:
2 Love and peace be multiplied to you through the full knowledge of Yahweh and of Yahshua our King,
3 As His holy power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and holiness, through the full knowledge of Him Who called us to glory and virtue:
4 Through which exceedingly great and precious promises have been given to us by Him, in order that through these you may be partakers of that holy nature, and escape the corruption in the world, which is through lust.
5 And also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge,
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance perseverance, and to perseverance holiness;
7 And to holiness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love,
8 For if these things are in you, and abound, they cause you to be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our King, Yahshua Messiah.
