Chapter 1

1:2  Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

grace

Grace (imparted). Romans 6:1; 2 Peter 3:18

1:4  Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

world

kosmos = world-system. 2 Peter 2:20; John 7:7 (See Scofield "Revelation 13:8") .

1:9  But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

sins

Sin. (See Scofield "Romans 3:23") .

1:18  And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

holy mount

Where the reference is to things, the meaning of "holy" or "sanctified" is, simply, set apart for the use of God, or rendered sacred by the divine presence.

1:19  We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

whereunto

That is, made more sure by fulfilment in part. Fulfilled prophecy is a proof of inspiration because the Scripture predictions of future events were uttered so long before the events transpired that no merely human sagacity or foresight could have anticipated them, and these predictions are so detailed, minute, and specific, as to exclude the possibility that they were mere fortunate guesses. Hundreds of predictions concerning Israel, the land of Canaan, Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, and numerous personages--so ancient, so singular, so seemingly improbable, as well as so detailed and definite that no mortal could have anticipated them--have been fulfilled by the elements, and by men who were ignorant of them, or who utterly disbelieved them, or who struggled with frantic desperation to avoid their fulfilment. It is certain, therefore, that the Scriptures which contain them are inspired. "Prophecy came not in olden time by the will of man; but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost" 2 Peter 1:21.

a more sure Or, the word of prophecy made more sure.

dark place Or, squalid place. Psalms 119:105; John 1:4,9.

1:20  Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

any private

its own interpretation; i.e. not isolated from all that the Word has given elsewhere.
