Kiswahili Contemporary Version (Neno: Bibilia Takatifu)

2 Petro 1:1-21

11:1 Rum 1:1; 1Pet 1:1; Rum 3:21-26; Tit 2:13Simoni Petro, mtumishi na mtume wa Yesu Kristo:

Kwa wale ambao kwa njia ya haki ya Mungu na Mwokozi wetu Yesu Kristo mmepokea imani iliyo na thamani kama yetu:

21:2 2Pet 3:18; Rum 1:7; Flp 3:8; 2Pet 2:20; 1:3, 8Neema na amani iwe kwenu kwa wingi katika kumjua Mungu na Yesu Bwana wetu.

Wito Wa Mkristo Na Uteule

31:3 1Pet 1:5; Rum 8:28; 1The 2:12Uweza wake wa uungu umetupatia mambo yote tunayohitaji kwa ajili ya uzima na uchaji wa Mungu, kwa kumjua yeye aliyetuita kwa utukufu wake na wema wake mwenyewe. 41:4 2Kor 7:1; Efe 4:24; Ebr 12:10; Yak 1:27Kwa sababu hiyo, ametukirimia ahadi zake kuu na za thamani kupitia mambo haya, ili kupitia hayo mpate kuwa washiriki wa asili ya uungu, na kuokoka kutoka upotovu ulioko duniani unaosababishwa na tamaa mbaya.

51:5 Kol 2:3; 2Pet 3:18; 1Pet 3:7; Gal 5:6, 22; Yud 3Kwa sababu hii hasa, jitahidini sana katika imani yenu kuongeza wema; na katika wema, maarifa; 61:6 Mdo 24:25; Ebr 10:36; 2Pet 1:3katika maarifa, kiasi; katika kiasi, saburi; katika saburi, utauwa;1:6 Maana yake kumcha Mungu. 71:7 Rum 12:10; 1The 3:12; Gal 6:18; 1The 5:15; 1Yn 4:21katika utauwa, upendano wa ndugu; na katika upendano wa ndugu, upendo. 81:8 Yn 15:2; Kol 1:10Kwa maana haya yakiwa ndani yenu kwa wingi na kuzidi kuongezeka, yanawasaidia msikose bidii wala kutozaa matunda katika kumjua Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo. 91:9 1Yn 2:11; Mt 1:21Lakini mtu yeyote asipokuwa na mambo haya haoni mbali, na ni kipofu, naye amesahau kule kutakaswa kutoka dhambi zake za zamani.

101:10 Za 15:5; Rum 8:28; Za 15:5; 2Pet 3:17; Yud 24Kwa hiyo, ndugu zangu, fanyeni bidii zaidi kuuthibitisha wito wenu na uteule wenu. Kwa maana mkifanya hivyo, hamtajikwaa kamwe, 111:11 Za 145:13; 2Tim 4:18; 2Pet 2:20; 3:18na mtajaliwa kwa ukarimu mwingi kuingia katika ufalme wa milele wa Bwana na Mwokozi wetu Yesu Kristo.

Unabii Wa Maandiko

121:12 1Yn 2:21; Flp 3:1; Yud 5; 2Yn 2Hivyo nitawakumbusha mambo haya siku zote, hata ingawa mnayajua na mmethibitishwa katika kweli mliyo nayo. 131:13 Isa 38:12; 2Kor 5:14; 2Pet 3:1; 2Kor 5:1, 4Naona ni vyema kuwakumbusha mambo haya wakati wote niwapo katika hema hili ambalo ni mwili wangu, 141:14 2Tim 4:6; Yn 13:36; 21:18, 19kwa sababu najua ya kwamba hivi karibuni nitaliweka kando, kama vile Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo alivyoliweka wazi kwangu. 151:15 Lk 9:31; Hes 22:4-20; 31:16; Kum 23:4; Yud 11; Ufu 2:14Nami nitafanya kila juhudi kuona kwamba baada ya kuondoka kwangu mtaweza kuyakumbuka mambo haya siku zote.

161:16 Mk 13:26; Hes 22:21-30; 1Kor 1:17; 2:1, 4; 2Kor 2:17; 4:2Tulipowafahamisha juu ya uweza na kuja kwa Bwana wetu Yesu Kristo, hatukufuata hadithi zilizotungwa kwa werevu, bali tulishuhudia kwa macho yetu ukuu wake. 17Alipewa heshima na utukufu kutoka kwa Mungu Baba, sauti ilipomjia katika Utukufu Mkuu, ikisema, “Huyu ni Mwanangu mpendwa. Ninapendezwa naye sana.” 18Sisi wenyewe tuliisikia sauti hii ambayo ilitoka mbinguni, wakati tulipokuwa pamoja naye kwenye ule mlima mtakatifu.

191:19 Za 119:105; Ufu 22:16Nasi tunalo pia neno la hakika zaidi la unabii, ambalo mtafanya vyema mkiliangalia kwa bidii, kama vile nuru inavyongʼaa gizani, hadi kupambazuka na nyota ya asubuhi izuke mioyoni mwenu. 201:20 Rum 12:6; 2Pet 3:3Zaidi ya yote, yawapasa mjue kwamba hakuna unabii katika Maandiko uliofasiriwa kama alivyopenda nabii mwenyewe. 211:21 2Tim 3:16; 2Sam 23:2; Mdo 1:16Kwa maana unabii haukuja kamwe kwa mapenzi ya mwanadamu, bali watu walinena yaliyotoka kwa Mungu wakiongozwa na Roho Mtakatifu.

King James Version

2 Peter 1:1-21

1Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ: 2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. 8For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

12Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. 13Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; 14Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. 15Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance. 16For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
