彼得后书 1

1我是耶稣基督的奴仆和使徒西门·彼得,写信给借着我们的上帝和救主耶稣基督的义,与我们得到同样宝贵信心的人。

愿你们因认识上帝和我们主耶稣而得到丰富的恩典和平安!

追求长进

因为我们认识了用自己的荣耀和美德呼召我们的上帝,上帝以祂神圣的能力将生命与敬虔所需要的一切赐给了我们。 借此,祂已将既宝贵又伟大的应许赏给了我们,使我们脱离世上私欲带来的败坏,能够有份于上帝的性情。

正因如此,你们要加倍努力,不仅要有信心,还要有好的德行;不仅要有好的德行,还要有知识; 不仅要有知识,还要有节制;不仅要有节制,还要有忍耐;不仅要有忍耐,还要有敬虔; 不仅要有敬虔,还要有爱弟兄姊妹的心;不仅要有爱弟兄姊妹的心,还要有爱众人的心。 如果充分具备了这些品德,你们对我们主耶稣基督的认识就不会停滞不前,毫无收获。 缺乏上述品德的人不是瞎眼就是目光短浅,忘记他从前的罪已经得到洁净。

10 所以,弟兄姊妹,你们要更加努力,以确定自己蒙了呼召和拣选。这样,你们就绝不会失足犯罪, 11 进入我们的主和救主耶稣基督永恒国度的大门必为你们敞开。

12 虽然你们已经知道这些事,并且在所领受的真道上也很坚固,但我还是要常常提醒你们。 13 我觉得应当趁着我还在世的时候[a]提醒你们,激励你们, 14 因我知道自己离世的日子已经不远了,正如我们的主耶稣基督指示我的。 15 我要尽力使你们在我离世以后仍然常常记得这些事。

见证基督的荣耀

16 我们从前告诉你们有关主耶稣基督的大能和祂降临的事,并非根据巧妙虚构的神话,而是我们亲眼见过祂的威荣。 17 祂从父上帝那里得到了尊贵和荣耀,那时从极大的荣光中有声音对祂说:“这是我的爱子,我甚喜悦祂。” 18 当时我们和祂一同在圣山上,亲耳听见了这来自天上的声音。

19 这使我们更加确信先知的预言。你们要留意这些预言,把这些预言看作照耀在黑暗中的明灯,一直到天破晓、晨星在你们心中升起。 20 你们首先该知道:圣经上的一切预言都不可随人的私意解释, 21 因为预言绝非出于人的意思,都是人受了圣灵的感动,讲出上帝的信息。

2 Peter 1

Growth in Christian Virtue

1[a]Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

To those who have received a faith of the same [b]kind as ours, [c]by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us [d]by His own glory and [e]excellence. [f]For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral [g]excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; 11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.

12 Therefore, I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been established in the truth which is present with you. 13 I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder, 14 knowing that the laying aside of my earthly dwelling is imminent, as also our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15 And I will also be diligent that at any time after my departure you will be able to call these things to mind.

Eyewitnesses

16 For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an [h]utterance as this was [i]made to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”— 18 and we ourselves heard this [j]utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.

19 [k]So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. 20 But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, 21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
