The Warnings of History to the Ungodly

1 IaJude, a bbond-servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of IIJames,

¶ To cthose who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and dkept for Jesus Christ: 2 aMay mercy and peace and love bbe multiplied to you.

[2] aGa 6:16; 1Ti 1:2 b1P 1:2; 2P 1:2

3aBeloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our bcommon salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you ccontend earnestly for dthe faith which was once for all ehanded down to fthe Isaints. 4 For certain persons have acrept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand Ibmarked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn cthe grace of our God into dlicentiousness and edeny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

5 ¶ Now I desire to aremind you, though byou know all things once for all, that Ithe Lord, cafter saving a people out of the land of Egypt, IIsubsequently destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And aangels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has bkept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, 7 just as aSodom and Gomorrah and the bcities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and cwent after Istrange flesh, are exhibited as an IIdexample in undergoing the epunishment of eternal fire.

8 ¶ Yet in the same way these men, also by dreaming, adefile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile Iangelic majesties. 9 But aMichael bthe archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about cthe body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, “dThe Lord rebuke you!” 10 But athese men revile the things which they do not understand; and bthe things which they know by instinct, alike unreasoning animals, by these things they are Idestroyed. 11 Woe to them! For they have gone athe way of Cain, and for pay Ithey have rushed headlong into bthe error of Balaam, and cperished in the rebellion of Korah. 12 These are the men who are Ihidden reefs ain your love feasts when they feast with you bwithout fear, caring for themselves; cclouds without water, dcarried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, IIdoubly dead, euprooted; 13 awild waves of the sea, casting up btheir own Ishame like foam; wandering stars, cfor whom the IIblack darkness has been reserved forever.

Keep Yourselves in the Love of God

17 ¶ But you, abeloved, bought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by cthe apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, 18 that they were saying to you, “aIn the last time there will be mockers, bfollowing after their own ungodly lusts.” 19 These are the ones who cause divisions, Iaworldly-minded, IIdevoid of the Spirit. 20 But you, abeloved, bbuilding yourselves up on your most holy afaith, cpraying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, awaiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on some, who are doubting; 23 save others, asnatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear, bhating even the garment polluted by the flesh.

He exhorteth them to be constant in the profession of the faith.

1 ¶ Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, [and] called: 2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied. 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

False teachers are crept in to seduce them: for whose damnable doctrine and manners horrible punishment is prepared:

4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. 7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these [filthy] dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. 9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. 10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 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. 12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds [they are] without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. 14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, 15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. 16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling [words], having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. 17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. 19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

whereas the godly, by the assistance of the Holy Spirit, and prayers to God, may persevere, and grow in grace, and keep themselves, and recover others out of the snares of those deceivers.

20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, 21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And of some have compassion, making a difference: 23 And others save with fear, pulling [them] out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, 25 To the only wise God our Saviour, [be] glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever.
