Bible, Ethician Version
 Grace and
peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God,
 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
 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:
 But there
were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false
teachers among you, who privily shall bring in
damnable heresies, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
 God knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before,
beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from
your own stedfastness.
