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。

New Living Translation

2 Peter 1

Greetings from Peter

1This letter is from Simon[a] Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ.

I am writing to you who share the same precious faith we have. This faith was given to you because of the justice and fairness[b] of Jesus Christ, our God and Savior.

May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.

Growing in Faith

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.

The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.

10 So, dear brothers and sisters,[c] work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away. 11 Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Paying Attention to Scripture

12 Therefore, I will always remind you about these things—even though you already know them and are standing firm in the truth you have been taught. 13 And it is only right that I should keep on reminding you as long as I live.[d] 14 For our Lord Jesus Christ has shown me that I must soon leave this earthly life,[e] 15 so I will work hard to make sure you always remember these things after I am gone.

16 For we were not making up clever stories when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We saw his majestic splendor with our own eyes 17 when he received honor and glory from God the Father. The voice from the majestic glory of God said to him, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.”[f] 18 We ourselves heard that voice from heaven when we were with him on the holy mountain.

19 Because of that experience, we have even greater confidence in the message proclaimed by the prophets. You must pay close attention to what they wrote, for their words are like a lamp shining in a dark place—until the Day dawns, and Christ the Morning Star shines[g] in your hearts. 20 Above all, you must realize that no prophecy in Scripture ever came from the prophet’s own understanding,[h] 21 or from human initiative. No, those prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit, and they spoke from God.
