II. The Divine Provision
A. The Impartation of the Divine Power
1. All Things Which Relate to Life and
Godliness, with the Divine Nature
3 Seeing that His 1adivine power has 2granted to us 3all things which relate to 4blife and 5cgodliness, 6through the 7full knowledge of 8Him who has dcalled us 9by His own 10eglory and 11fvirtue,
4 1Through 2which He has granted to us precious and 3exceedingly great apromises that through 4these you might become bpartakers of the divine nature, 5having cescaped the 6corruption which is in the dworld 7by elust.
2. Growth and Development by Life
unto the Rich Entrance into the Eternal Kingdom
5 And for this very reason also, 1adding all adiligence, 2supply bountifully in your 3bfaith 4cvirtue; and in virtue, 5dknowledge;
6 And in knowledge, 1aself-control; and in self-control, 2bendurance; and in endurance, 3cgodliness;
7 And in godliness, 1abrotherly love; and in brotherly love, 2blove.
8 For 1these things, 2existing in you and 3abounding, 4constitute you neither 5idle nor 6aunfruitful 7unto the full 8bknowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 For he in whom 1these things are not present is ablind, being 2shortsighted, 3having forgotten the bcleansing of his past sins.
10 1Therefore, brothers, be the more adiligent to 2make your bcalling and cselection dfirm, for doing 3these things you shall by no means ever estumble.
11 For in this way the aentrance into the 1eternal bkingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be richly and cbountifully 2supplied to you.
