3:13 But, according to his promise, we are waiting for 1  new heavens and a new earth, in which 2  righteousness truly resides. 3 

Exhortation to the Faithful

3:14 Therefore, dear friends, since you are waiting for 4  these things, strive to be found 5  at peace, without spot or blemish, when you come into his presence. 6  3:15 And regard the patience of our Lord as salvation, 7  just as also our dear brother Paul 8  wrote to you, 9  according to the wisdom given to him, 3:16 speaking of these things in all his letters. 10  Some things in these letters 11  are hard to understand, things 12  the ignorant and unstable twist 13  to their own destruction, as they also do to the rest of the scriptures. 14  3:17 Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, 15  be on your guard that you do not get led astray by the error of these unprincipled men 16  and fall from your firm grasp on the truth. 17  3:18 But grow in the grace and knowledge 18  of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the honor both now and on 19  that eternal day. 20
