Context Readings

The Coming Day Of The Lord

12 [while] looking forward to, and earnestly desiring the day of God to come, when the heavens will be set ablaze and dissolved by fire and the elements [See verse 10] will melt with intense heat. 13 But, since God has promised it, we look forward to new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness will prevail. 14 So, my dearly loved ones, while you are waiting for these things [to happen], do your best to be found at peace with God, pure and blameless in His sight.
