    2 Peter Chapter 1

    Here's my translation of 2 Peter Chapter 1. Please critique (me, not 2 Peter).

    2 Peter

    Simon Peter, slave and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who obtained as their portion a faith equal in honor to ours in the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to y o u in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
    3 Seeing that His divine power has bestowed on us all things necessary for life and piety through the knowledge of the One who summoned us through glory and virtue, 4 by means of which has been bestowed us the exceptionally valuable and greatest promises, so that through these y o u may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world because of desire. 5 But also for this very reason, having made every effort, in y o ur faith supply virtue, and in y o ur virtue supply knowledge, 6 and in y o ur knowledge supply self-control, and in y o ur self-control steadfastness, and in y o ur steadfastness piety, 7 and in y o ur piety brotherly affection, and in y o ur brotherly affection love. 8 For if these things are y o urs and abounding, they make y o u neither idle nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For the one who does not have these things is blind, being nearsighted, having forgotten the purification from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brothers, make all the more effort to make y o ur invitation and election guaranteed, for if y o u do these things y o u will never lose y o ur footing. 11 For in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to y o u.
    12 For this reason I will not neglect to always remind y o u about these things, although y o u know them and are firmly fixed in the truth that y o u have. 13 But I think it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to wake y o u up with a reminder, 14 knowing that the taking off of my tabernacle is coming soon, just as our Lord Jesus Christ also revealed to me. 15 But I will also make every effort so that after my departure y o u will always be able to recall these things. 16 For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to y o u the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For having received honor and glory from God the Father, having a voice such as this borne to Him from the Majestic Glory: "This is My beloved Son, in whom I have set my good pleasure"-- 18 and we ourselves heard this very voice which was borne from heaven, when we were with Him on the holy mountain. 19 And we have the prophetic word as something that is now all the more sure, to which y o u would do well to turn y o ur mind to, as y o u would to a lamp shining in a gloomy place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in y o ur hearts, 20 knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of the prophet's own explanation, 21 for no prophecy was ever borne by the will of man, but saints of God spoke as they were being borne by the Holy Spirit.
    For whatever strength of arm he may have who swims in the open sea, yet in time he is carried away and sunk, mastered by the greatness of its waves. Need then there is that we be in the ship, that is, that we be carried in the wood, that we may be able to cross this sea. Now this Wood in which our weakness is carried is the Cross of the Lord, by which we are signed, and delivered from the dangerous tempests of this world.--St. Augustine

    Well Charles, sometimes I think you're rather arrogant and... oh, never mind, so am I.
    Isaiah 45:7, (KJV), I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.

    I should have phrased my statement better but I do wonder what Mickey doing that makes him able to smell by beard.
