Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jude 1:7

_ _ Even as — Alford translates, “I wish to remind you (Jude 1:5) that.

_ _ Sodom, etc. — (2 Peter 2:6).

_ _ giving themselves over to fornication — following fornication extraordinarily, that is, out of the order of nature. On “in like manner to them” (Greek), compare Note, see on Jude 1:6. Compare on spiritual fornication, “go a whoring from thee,Psalms 73:27.

_ _ going after strange flesh — departing from the course of nature, and going after that which is unnatural. In later times the most enlightened heathen nations indulged in the sin of Sodom without compunction or shame.

_ _ are set forth — before our eyes.

_ _ suffering — undergoing to this present time; alluding to the marks of volcanic fire about the Dead Sea.

_ _ the vengeanceGreek, “righteous retribution.”

_ _ eternal fire — The lasting marks of the fire that consumed the cities irreparably, is a type of the eternal fire to which the inhabitants have been consigned. Bengel translates as the Greek will admit, “Suffering (the) punishment (which they endure) as an example or sample of eternal fire (namely, that which shall consume the wicked).” Ezekiel 16:53-55 shows that Sodom’s punishment, as a nation, is not eternal. Compare also 2 Peter 2:6.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Jude 1:3-7.

Jude 1:7

The cities which gave themselves over to fornication — The word here means, unnatural lusts. Are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire — That is, the vengeance which they suffered is an example or a type of eternal fire.
