Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jude 1:11

_ _ Woe — See on 2 Peter 2:14, “cursed children.”

_ _ Cain — the murderer: the root of whose sin was hatred and envy of the godly, as it is the sin of these seducers.

_ _ ran greedily — literally, “have been poured forth” like a torrent that has burst its banks. Reckless of what it costs, the loss of God’s favor and heaven, on they rush after gain like Balaam.

_ _ perished in the gainsaying of Core — (compare Note, see on Jude 1:12). When we read of Korah perishing by gainsaying, we read virtually also of these perishing in like manner through the same: for the same seed bears the same harvest.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jude 1:8-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Jude 1:11

Woe unto them — Of all the apostles St. Jude alone, and that in this single place, denounces a woe. St. Peter, to the same effect, pronounces them "cursed children." For they have gone in the way of Cain — The murderer. And ran greedily — Literally, have been poured out, like a torrent without banks. After the error of Balaam — The covetous false prophet. And perished in the gainsaying of Korah — Vengeance has overtaken them as it did Korah, rising up against those whom God had sent.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Jude 1:11

(9) Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

(9) He foretells their destruction, because they resemble or proclaim Cain's shameless malice, Balaam's filthy covetousness, and to be short, Core's seditious and ambitious head.
