But there were falseG5578 prophetsG5578 alsoG2532 amongG1722 the people,G2992 evenG2532 as there shall be falseG5572 teachersG5572 amongG1722 you, whoG3748 privatelyG3919 shall bringG3919 in damnableG684 heresies,G139 evenG2532 denyingG720 the LordG1203 that boughtG59 them, and bringG1863 on themselvesG1438 swiftG5031 destruction.G684
And manyG4183 shall followG1811 their perniciousG684 ways;G684 by reasonG1223 of whomG3739 the wayG3598 of truthG225 shall be evilG987 spokenG987 of.
And throughG1722 covetousnessG4124 shall they with feignedG4112 wordsG3056 makeG1710 merchandise of you: whoseG3739 judgmentG2917 now of a long timeG1597 lingersG691 not, and their damnationG684 slumbersG3573 not.
For ifG1487 GodG2316 sparedG5339 not the angelsG32 that sinned,G264 but castG5020 them down to hell,G5020 and deliveredG3860 them into chainsG4577 of darkness,G2217 to be reservedG5083 to judgment;G2920
And sparedG5339 not the oldG744 world,G2889 but savedG5442 NoahG3575 the eighthG3590 person, a preacherG2783 of righteousness,G1343 bringingG1863 in the floodG2627 on the worldG2889 of the ungodly;G765
And turningG5077 the citiesG4172 of SodomG4670 and GomorrhaG1116 into ashesG5077 condemnedG2632 them with an overthrow,G2692 makingG4160 them an ensampleG5262 to thoseG3588 that afterG3195 shouldG3195 live ungodly;G764
And deliveredG4506 justG1342 Lot,G3091 vexedG2669 with the filthyG766 conversationG391 of the wicked:G113
(For that righteousG1342 man dwellingG1460 amongG1722 them, in seeingG990 and hearing,G189 vexedG928 his righteousG1342 soulG5590 from dayG2250 to dayG2250 with their unlawfulG459 deeds;G2041)
The LordG2962 knowsG1492 how to deliverG4506 the godlyG2152 out of temptations,G3986 and to reserveG5083 the unjustG94 to the dayG2250 of judgmentG2920 to be punished:G2849
But chieflyG3122 them that walkG4198 afterG3694 the fleshG4561 in the lustG1939 of uncleanness,G3394 and despiseG2706 government.G2963 PresumptuousG5113 are they, self-willed,G829 they are not afraidG5141 to speakG987 evilG987 of dignities.G1391
WhereasG3699 angels,G32 which are greaterG3187 in powerG2479 and might,G1411 bringG5342 not railingG989 accusationG2920 againstG2596 them beforeG3844 the Lord.G2962
But these,G3778 as naturalG5446 bruteG249 beasts,G2226 madeG1080 to be takenG259 and destroyed,G5356 speakG987 evilG987 of the things that they understandG50 not; and shall utterlyG2704 perishG2704 in their ownG848 corruption;G5356
And shall receiveG2865 the rewardG3408 of unrighteousness,G93 as they that countG2233 it pleasureG2237 to riotG5172 in the dayG2250 time. SpotsG4696 they are and blemishes,G3470 sportingG1792 themselves with their ownG848 deceivingsG539 while they feastG4910 with you;
HavingG2192 eyesG3788 fullG3324 of adultery,G3428 and that cannotG180 ceaseG180 from sin;G266 beguilingG1185 unstableG793 souls:G5590 an heartG2588 they haveG2192 exercisedG1128 with covetousG4124 practices; cursedG2671 children:G5043
Which haveG2192 forsakenG2641 the rightG2117 way,G3598 and are goneG4105 astray,G4105 followingG1811 the wayG3598 of BalaamG903 the son of Bosor,G1007 whoG3739 lovedG25 the wagesG3408 of unrighteousness;G93
But was rebukedG2192 G1649 for his iniquity:G3892 the dumbG880 assG5268 speakingG5350 with man'sG444 voiceG5456 forbadeG2967 the madnessG3913 of the prophet.G4396
TheseG3778 are wellsG4077 withoutG504 water,G504 cloudsG3507 that are carriedG4064 with a tempest;G2978 to whomG3739 the mistG2217 of darknessG4655 is reservedG5083 for ever.G165
For when they speakG5350 greatG5246 swellingG5246 words of vanity,G3153 they allureG1185 throughG1722 the lustsG1939 of the flesh,G4561 through much wantonness,G766 thoseG3588 that were cleanG3689 escapedG668 from them who liveG390 in error.G4106
While they promiseG1861 them liberty,G1657 they themselvesG846 are the servantsG1401 of corruption:G5356 for of whomG3739 a manG5100 is overcome,G2274 of the sameG3778 is he broughtG1402 in bondage.G1402
For ifG1487 after they have escapedG668 the pollutionsG3393 of the worldG2889 throughG1722 the knowledgeG1922 of the LordG2962 and SaviorG4990 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547 they are againG3825 entangledG1707 therein,G5125 and overcome,G2274 the latterG2078 endG2078 is worseG5501 with them than the beginning.G4413
For it had beenG2258 betterG2909 for them not to have knownG1921 the wayG3598 of righteousness,G1343 than,G2228 after they have knownG1921 it, to turnG1994 from the holyG40 commandmentG1785 deliveredG3860 to them.
But it is happenedG4819 to them according to the trueG227 proverb,G3942 The dogG2965 is turnedG1994 to his ownG2398 vomitG1829 again;G1994 and the sowG5300 that was washedG3068 to her wallowingG2946 in the mire.G1004
