2Pet.1:4 4δι᾽ ὧν τὰ τίμια καὶ μέγιστα ἡμῖν ἐπαγγέλματα δεδώρηται· ἵνα διὰ τούτων γένησθε θείας κοινωνοὶ φύσεως ἀποφυγόντες τῆς ἐν τῷ κόσμῳ ἐν ἐπιθυμίᾳ φθορᾶς. 4 And because of his glory and excellence , he has given us {NEQ} great and precious promises .

2Pet.2:18 18ὑπέρογκα γὰρ ματαιότητος φθεγγόμενοι δελεάζουσιν· ἐν ἐπιθυμίαις σαρκὸς ἀσελγείαις· τοὺς ὀλίγως ἀποφεύγοντας τοὺς ἐν πλάνῃ ἀναστρεφομένους· 18 {NEQ} They brag about themselves with empty , foolish boasting .
