14 aTherefore, bbeloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be cfound by Him in peace, dspotless and blameless,
15 and regard the apatience of our Lord as salvation; just as also bour beloved brother Paul, caccording to the wisdom given him, wrote to you,
16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of athese things, bin which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and cunstable distort, as they do also dthe rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.
17 You therefore, abeloved, knowing this beforehand, bbe on your guard so that you are not carried away by cthe error of dunprincipled men and efall from your own steadfastness,
18 but grow in the grace and aknowledge of our bLord and Savior Jesus Christ. cTo Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
