His divine power has given us everything we need 
for life and godliness
 through our knowledge of Him 
who called us by His own glory and goodness. 
Through these He has given us
 His very great and precious promises,
 so that through them 
you may participate in the divine nature
 and escape the corruption in the world 
caused by evil desires.

perfect for making cinnamon rolls!
