2 Peter 2:2-3

2:2 And many will follow their debauched lifestyles. 1  Because of these false teachers, 2  the way of truth will be slandered. 3  2:3 And in their greed they will exploit you with deceptive words. Their 4  condemnation pronounced long ago 5  is not sitting idly by; 6  their 7  destruction is not asleep.

1 tn “Debauched lifestyles” is literally “licentiousnesses,” “sensualities,” “debaucheries.”

2 tn Grk “because of whom,” introducing a subordinate clause to the first part of the verse.

3 tn Or “blasphemed,” “reviled,” “treated with contempt.”

4 tn Grk “to whom,” introducing a subordinate relative clause.

5 tn Grk “the ancient judgment.”

6 tn Grk “is not idle.”

7 tn Greek has “and their.” As introducing a synonymous parallel, it is superfluous in English.
