But you must remember,
beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.
They said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers,
following their own ungodly passions.”
It is these who cause divisions, worldly people,
devoid of the Spirit.
But you, beloved,
building yourselves up in your most holy faith
and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God,
waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.
