Here is 2 Peter in the New Eclectic Version.
And here is brother Peter himself, reminding us that the multiform Word of God is given to his saints as a beacon of truth and hope, shining in a dark and dismal place. Reading the newspaper first, and 2 Peter next, you will get an excellent feel for both.
For we were not following cleverly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were in fact eyewitnesses of His majesty. For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, a voice such as this was borne to Him by the Majestic Glory, saying: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” And we ourselves heard this voice borne from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
Moreover, we also possess the trustworthy prophetic word, which you do well to keep in view as though it were a lamp shining in a dark and dismal place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts; recognizing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s private inspiration, for no prophecy ever had its origin in the will of man, but holy men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
