The New Messianic Version of the Bible
1Shim’on [he has heard] Kefa [pebble] [pebble], a slave and an apostle of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God-The Father and our Saviour Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah]: 2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God-The Father, and of Yeshua [God is Salvation]our Lord - Kurios, 3According as his divine power has given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that has called us to glory and virtue (power): 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you2f 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 (power); and to virtue (power) knowledge; 6And to knowledge self-control; and to self-control 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 you2f shall] neither [be] barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah]. 9But he that lacks these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and has forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10For what reason the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you2f do these things, you2f shall never fall: 11For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord - Kurios and Saviour Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah].
12For what reason I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though you2f know [them], and be established in the present truth. 13Yes, 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 - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah] has showed me. 15Moreover I will endeavour that you2f 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 - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17For he received from God-The Father 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 you2f do well that you2f take heed, as unto a light that shines 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-The Father spoke [as they were] moved by the Holy Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh].
