Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, (2 Peter 1:5)

and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, (2 Peter 1:6)

and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. (2 Peter 1:7)

For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:8)

For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. (2 Peter 1:9)
