The Lord rescues the godly (2 Pet 2:9)

“The Lord

Knows how

To rescue

The godly

From trials.

He keeps

The unrighteous people

Under punishment

Until the day of judgment.”

οἶδεν Κύριος εὐσεβεῖς ἐκ πειρασμοῦ ῥύεσθαι, ἀδίκους δὲ εἰς ἡμέραν κρίσεως κολαζομένους τηρεῖν

This author said, “The Lord (Κύριος) knows (οἶδεν) how to rescue (ῥύεσθαι) the godly (εὐσεβεῖς) from trials (ἐκ πειρασμοῦ).  He keeps (τηρεῖ) the unrighteous people (ἀδίκους) under punishment (κολαζομένους) until the day of judgment (δὲ εἰς ἡμέραν κρίσεως).”  This author indicated that the Lord knows how to rescue the pious godly ones from trials, tribulations, and temptations.  On the other hand, the Lord continually keeps punishing the impious and unrighteous until the final day of judgment arrives. Are you rescued from trials and tribulations?
