Bible: 2 Peter 3:10-15

3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief; when it comes, 1  the heavens will disappear 2  with a horrific noise, 3  and the celestial bodies 4  will melt away 5  in a blaze, 6  and the earth and every deed done on it 7  will be laid bare. 8  3:11 Since all these things are to melt away 9  in this manner, 10  what sort of people must we 11  be, conducting our lives in holiness and godliness, 12  3:12 while waiting for and hastening 13  the coming of the day of God? 14  Because of this day, 15  the heavens will be burned up and 16  dissolve, and the celestial bodies 17  will melt away in a blaze! 18  3:13 But, according to his promise, we are waiting for 19  new heavens and a new earth, in which 20  righteousness truly resides. 21
