2 Peter 3:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

So never forget both the prophecies spoken by the holy prophets of old and the teaching[a] of our Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles.[b]

Above all, you must understand that in the last days mockers[c] will multiply, chasing after their evil desires. They will say, “So what about this promise of his coming?[d] Our ancestors are dead and buried, yet everything is still the same as it was since from the beginning of time until now.”

Footnotes:

  1. 2 Peter 3:2 Or “commandment.”
  2. 2 Peter 3:2 Peter places “your apostles” on the same level as the Old Testament prophets as to their trustworthiness and in setting the standard for living a life of purity for God.
  3. 2 Peter 3:3 Or “deceivers.”
  4. 2 Peter 3:4 This is the Greek word parousia, which can also mean “presence” or “arrival” or “visitation.” The Aramaic can be translated “Where is the kingdom that he brought?”
