waiting for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ,
from now on there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day, and not to me only, but unto all those also that have loved his appearing.
for the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the times of the ages
Simon Peter, slave and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those that have obtained like precious faith with us in the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ:
so that ye lack nothing in any gift, waiting for the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ,
In whom the god of this age has blinded the understanding of those who do not believe, that the light of the gospel of the glory of the Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine in them.
I charge thee, therefore, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead in his appearing and in his kingdom:
But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
For I know that my redeemer lives and that he shall rise at the latter day over the dust;
And it shall be said in that day, Behold, this is our God, whom we have waited for, and he has saved us: this is the LORD, whom we have waited for, we will be glad and rejoice in his saving health.
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he shall reward everyone according to their works.
When the Son of man shall come in his glory and all the holy angels with him, then he shall sit upon the throne of his glory,
Jesus said unto him, Thou hast said it; nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
And Jesus said unto him, I AM, and ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of the power of God and coming in the clouds of the heaven.
and have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.
and the hope shall not be ashamed, because the love of God is poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us.
For in hope we are saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for what a man sees, he does not wait for.
And believing, the God of hope fills you with all joy and peace that ye may abound in hope by the virtue of the Holy Spirit.
For the God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts to bring forth the light of the knowledge of the clarity of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
For our citizenship is in heaven, from where we also look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
for the hope which is laid up for you in the heavens, of which ye have already heard by the word of the truth of the gospel,
if ye continue in the faith grounded and settled and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard and which is preached to every creature which is under heaven, of which I Paul am made a minister,
to whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery in the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory,
When Christ, who is our life, shall be manifested, then shall ye also be manifested with him in glory.
And then shall that Wicked one be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of his mouth and remove with the clarity of his coming:
Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God, even our Father, who has loved us and has given us eternal consolation and good hope through grace,
I give thee charge in the sight of God, who gives life to all things and before Christ Jesus, who testified before Pontius Pilate a good profession;
which he poured out abundantly in us through Jesus, the Christ, our Saviour;
that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us,
so also the Christ is offered once to take away the sins of many; and unto those that wait for him without sin he shall appear the second time unto saving health.
Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus, the Christ, who according to his great mercy has begotten us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus, the Christ, from the dead,
that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold (which perishes, nevertheless it is tried with fire), might be found unto praise and glory and honour when Jesus, the Christ, is made manifest;
waiting for and desiring earnestly for the coming of the day of God, in which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and until the day of eternity. Amen.
Beloved, now we are the sons of God, and it is not yet made manifest what we shall be; but we know that if he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.
