Bible: 2 Peter 3:5-10

3:5 For they deliberately suppress this fact, 1  that by the word of God 2  heavens existed long ago and an earth 3  was formed out of water and by means of water. 3:6 Through these things 4  the world existing at that time was destroyed when it was deluged with water. 3:7 But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been reserved for fire, by being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. 5 

3:8 Now, dear friends, do not let this one thing escape your notice, 6  that a single day is like a thousand years with the Lord and a thousand years are like a single day. 3:9 The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, 7  as some regard slowness, but is being patient toward you, because he does not wish 8  for any 9  to perish but for all to come to repentance. 10  3:10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief; when it comes, 11  the heavens will disappear 12  with a horrific noise, 13  and the celestial bodies 14  will melt away 15  in a blaze, 16  and the earth and every deed done on it 17  will be laid bare. 18
