2 Peter 3:1-7

Knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of His coming?

2 Peter 3:1-7
1
This is now the second letter that I am writing to you, beloved. In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder,
2
that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles,
3
knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires.
4
They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.”
5
For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God,
6
and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.
7
But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
