17 For he received of God the Father honor and glory, when there came such a voice to him from that excellent Glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
18 And this voice we heard when it came from heaven being with him in the holy mount.
19 [a]We have also a most sure word of the Prophets, [b]to the which ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the [c]day dawns, and the [d]day star arise in your hearts.
2 Peter 1:19The truth of the Gospel is hereby also manifest, in that it agreeth wholly with the foretellings of the Prophets.
2 Peter 1:19The doctrine of the Apostles doth not shut out the doctrine of the Prophets, for they confirm each other by each other’s testimonies, but the Prophets were as candles which gave light unto the blind, until the brightness of the Gospel began to shine.
2 Peter 1:19A more full and open knowledge than was under the shadows of the Law.
