2 Peter 1

Introduction
1Confirming them in hope of the increase of God's graces,
5he exhorts them, by faith, and good works, to make their calling sure;
12whereof he is careful to remind them, knowing that his death is at hand;
16and warns them to be constant in the faith of Christ, who is the true Son of God, by the eyewitness of the apostles beholding his majesty, and by the testimony of the Father, and the prophets.
