To Him who is Able!
But you, beloved, ought to remember
the words that were spoken beforehand
by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that they were saying to you,
“In the last time there will be mockers,
following after their own ungodly lusts.”
These are the ones who cause divisions,
worldly-minded, devoid of the Spirit.
But you, beloved, building yourselves up
on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
keep yourselves in the love of God,
waiting anxiously for the mercy
of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
And have mercy on some, who are doubting;
save others, snatching them out of the fire;
and on some have mercy with fear,
hating even the garment polluted by the flesh.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
and to make you stand in the presence of His glory
blameless with great joy,
to the only God our Savior,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
be glory, majesty, dominion and authority,
before all time and now and forever. Amen.
