2 Peter 2:1-19

But
<1161>
there were
<1096> (5633)
false prophets
<5578>
also
<2532>
among
<1722>
the people
<2992>_,
even
<2532>
as
<5613>
there shall be
<2071> (5704)
false teachers
<5572>
among
<1722>
you
<5213>_,
who
<3748>
privily shall bring in
<3919> (5692)
damnable
<684>
heresies
<139>_,
even
<2532>
denying
<720> (5740)
the Lord
<1203>
that bought
<59> (5660)
them
<846>_,
and bring
<1863> (5723)
upon themselves
<1438>
swift
<5031>
destruction
<684>_.
And
<2532>
many
<4183>
shall follow
<1811> (5692)
their
<846>
pernicious ways
<684>_;
by reason of
<1223>
whom
<3739>
the way
<3598>
of truth
<225>
shall be evil spoken of
<987> (5701)_.
{pernicious ways: or, lascivious ways, as some copies read}
And
<2532>
through
<1722>
covetousness
<4124>
shall they with feigned
<4112>
words
<3056>
make merchandise
<1710> (5695)
of you
<5209>_:
whose
<3739>
judgment
<2917>
now of a long time
<1597>
lingereth
<691> (5719)
not
<3756>_,
and
<2532>
their
<846>
damnation
<684>
slumbereth
<3573> (5719)
not
<3756>_.
For
<1063>
if
<1487>
God
<2316>
spared
<5339> (5662)
not
<3756>
the angels
<32>
that sinned
<264> (5660)_,
but
<235>
cast [them] down to hell
<5020> (5660)_,
and delivered
<3860> (5656)
[them] into chains
<4577>
of darkness
<2217>_,
to be reserved
<5083> (5772)
unto
<1519>
judgment
<2920>_;
And
<2532>
spared
<5339> (5662)
not
<3756>
the old
<744>
world
<2889>_,
but
<235>
saved
<5442> (5656)
Noah
<3575>
the eighth
<3590>
[person], a preacher
<2783>
of righteousness
<1343>_,
bringing in
<1863> (5660)
the flood
<2627>
upon the world
<2889>
of the ungodly
<765>_;
And
<2532>
turning
<5077> (0)
the cities
<4172>
of Sodom
<4670>
and
<2532>
Gomorrha
<1116>
into ashes
<5077> (5660)
condemned
<2632> (5656)
[them] with an overthrow
<2692>_,
making
<5087> (5761)
[them] an ensample
<5262>
unto those that after should
<3195> (5723)
live ungodly
<764> (5721)_;
And
<2532>
delivered
<4506> (5673)
just
<1342>
Lot
<3091>_,
vexed
<2669> (5746)
with
<5259>
the filthy
<766>
conversation
<391>
of the wicked
<113>_:
(For
<1063>
that righteous man
<1342>
dwelling
<1460> (5723)
among
<1722>
them
<846>_,
in seeing
<990>
and
<2532>
hearing
<189>_,
vexed
<928> (5707)
[his] righteous
<1342>
soul
<5590>
from day
<2250>
to
<1537>
day
<2250>
with [their] unlawful
<459>
deeds
<2041>;)
The Lord
<2962>
knoweth
<1492> (5758)
how to deliver
<4506> (5738)
the godly
<2152>
out of
<1537>
temptations
<3986>_,
and
<1161>
to reserve
<5083> (5721)
the unjust
<94>
unto
<1519>
the day
<2250>
of judgment
<2920>
to be punished
<2849> (5746)_:
But
<1161>
chiefly
<3122>
them that walk
<4198> (5740)
after
<3694>
the flesh
<4561>
in
<1722>
the lust
<1939>
of uncleanness
<3394>_,
and
<2532>
despise
<2706> (5723)
government
<2963>_.
Presumptuous
<5113>
[are they], selfwilled
<829>_,
they are not
<3756>
afraid
<5141> (5719)
to speak evil
<987> (5723)
of dignities
<1391>_.
{government: or, dominion}
Whereas
<3699>
angels
<32>_,
which are
<5607> (5752)
greater in
<3187>
power
<2479>
and
<2532>
might
<1411>_,
bring
<5342> (5719)
not
<3756>
railing
<989>
accusation
<2920>
against
<2596>
them
<846>
before
<3844>
the Lord
<2962>_.
{them: some read, themselves}
But
<1161>
these
<3778>_,
as
<5613>
natural
<5446>
brute
<249>
beasts
<2226>_,
made
<1080> (5772)
to
<1519>
be taken
<259>
and
<2532>
destroyed
<5356>_,
speak evil
<987> (5723)
of
<1722>
the things that
<3739>
they understand not
<50> (5719)_;
and shall utterly perish
<2704> (5691)
in
<1722>
their own
<846>
corruption
<5356>_;
And shall receive
<2865> (5697)
the reward
<3408>
of unrighteousness
<93>_,
[as] they that count
<2233> (5740)
it pleasure
<2237>
to riot
<5172>
in
<1722>
the day time
<2250>_.
Spots
<4696>
[they are] and
<2532>
blemishes
<3470>_,
sporting themselves
<1792> (5723)
with
<1722>
their own
<846>
deceivings
<539>
while they feast
<4910> (5740)
with you
<5213>_;
Having
<2192> (5723)
eyes
<3788>
full
<3324>
of adultery
<3428>_,
and
<2532>
that cannot cease from
<180>
sin
<266>_;
beguiling
<1185> (5723)
unstable
<793>
souls
<5590>_:
an heart
<2588>
they have
<2192> (5723)
exercised
<1128> (5772)
with covetous practices
<4124>_;
cursed
<2671>
children
<5043>_:
{adultery: Gr. an adulteress}
Which have forsaken
<2641> (5631)
the right
<2117>
way
<3598>_,
and are gone astray
<4105> (5681)_,
following
<1811> (5660)
the way
<3598>
of Balaam
<903>
[the son] of Bosor
<1007>_,
who
<3739>
loved
<25> (5656)
the wages
<3408>
of unrighteousness
<93>_;
But
<1161>
was
<2192> (5627)
rebuked
<1649>
for his
<2398>
iniquity
<3892>_:
the dumb
<880>
ass
<5268>
speaking
<5350> (5674)
with
<1722>
man's
<444>
voice
<5456>
forbad
<2967> (5656)
the madness
<3913>
of the prophet
<4396>_.
These
<3778>
are
<1526> (5748)
wells
<4077>
without water
<504>_,
clouds
<3507>
that are carried
<1643> (5746)
with
<5259>
a tempest
<2978>_;
to whom
<3739>
the mist
<2217>
of darkness
<4655>
is reserved
<5083> (5769)
for
<1519>
ever
<165>_.
For
<1063>
when they speak
<5350> (5726)
great swelling
<5246>
[words] of vanity
<3153>_,
they allure
<1185> (5719)
through
<1722>
the lusts
<1939>
of the flesh
<4561>_,
[through much] wantonness
<766>_,
those that were clean
<3689>
escaped
<668> (5631)
from them who live
<390> (5746)
in
<1722>
error
<4106>_.
{clean: or, for a little, or, a while, as some read}
While they promise
<1861> (5740)
them
<846>
liberty
<1657>_,
they themselves
<846>
are
<5225> (5723)
the servants
<1401>
of corruption
<5356>_:
for
<1063>
of whom
<3739>
a man
<5100>
is overcome
<2274> (5766)_,

<2532>
of the same
<5129>
is he brought in bondage
<1402> (5769)_.
