chapters: 1 2 3
EnglishLatin
31Behold this second epistle I write to you, my dearly beloved, in which, I stir up by way of admonition your sincere mind:hanc ecce vobis carissimi secundam scribo epistulam in quibus excito vestram in commonitione sinceram mentem
32That you may be mindful of those words which I told you before from the holy prophet and of your apostles, of the precepts of the Lord and Saviour.ut memores sitis eorum quae praedixi verborum a sanctis prophetis et apostolorum vestrorum praeceptorum Domini et salvatoris
33Knowing this first: That in the last days there shall come deceitful scoffers, walking after their own lusts,hoc primum scientes quod venient in novissimis diebus in deceptione inlusores iuxta proprias concupiscentias ambulantes
34Saying: Where is his promise or his coming? For since the time that the fathers slept, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.dicentes ubi est promissio aut adventus eius ex quo enim patres dormierunt omnia sic perseverant ab initio creaturae
35For this they are wilfully ignorant of: That the heavens were before, and the earth out of water and through water, consisting by the word of God:latet enim eos hoc volentes quod caeli erant prius et terra de aqua et per aquam consistens Dei verbo
36Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.per quae ille tunc mundus aqua inundatus periit
37But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of the ungodly men.caeli autem qui nunc sunt et terra eodem verbo repositi sunt igni servati in diem iudicii et perditionis impiorum hominum
38But of this one thing be not ignorant, my beloved, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.unum vero hoc non lateat vos carissimi quia unus dies apud Dominum sicut mille anni et mille anni sicut dies unus
39The Lord delayeth not his promise, as some imagine, but dealeth patiently for your sake, not willing that any should perish, but that all should return to penance,non tardat Dominus promissi sed patienter agit propter vos nolens aliquos perire sed omnes ad paenitentiam reverti
310But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence and the elements shall be melted with heat and the earth and the works which are in it shall be burnt up.adveniet autem dies Domini ut fur in qua caeli magno impetu transient elementa vero calore solventur
311Seeing then that all these things are to be dissolved, what manner of people ought you to be in holy conversation and godliness?cum haec igitur omnia dissolvenda sint quales oportet esse vos in sanctis conversationibus et pietatibus
312Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with the burning heat?expectantes et properantes in adventum Dei diei per quam caeli ardentes solventur et elementa ignis ardore tabescent
313But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to his promises, in which justice dwelleth.novos vero caelos et novam terram et promissa ipsius expectamus in quibus iustitia habitat
314Wherefore, dearly beloved, waiting for these things, be diligent that you may be found before him unspotted and blameless in peace.propter quod carissimi haec expectantes satis agite inmaculati et inviolati ei inveniri in pace
315And account the longsuffering of our Lord, salvation: as also our most dear brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, hath written to you:et Domini nostri longanimitatem salutem arbitramini sicut et carissimus frater noster Paulus secundum datam sibi sapientiam scripsit vobis
316As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are certain things hard to be understood, which the unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction.sicut et in omnibus epistulis loquens in eis de his in quibus sunt quaedam difficilia intellectu quae indocti et instabiles depravant sicut et ceteras scripturas ad suam ipsorum perditionem
317You therefore, brethren, knowing these things before, take heed, lest being led aside by the error of the unwise, you fall from your own steadfastness.vos igitur fratres praescientes custodite ne insipientium errore transducti excidatis a propria firmitate
318But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and unto the day of eternity, Amen.crescite vero in gratia et in cognitione Domini nostri et salvatoris Iesu Christi ipsi gloria et nunc et in die aeternitatis amen
