False Teachers and Their Destruction

1 But there were also false prophets1 among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you.2 They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord 3 who bought them4--bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their shameful ways5 and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed6 these teachers will exploit you7 with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping. 4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned,8 but sent them to hell,a putting them into gloomy dungeonsb to be held for judgment;9 5 if he did not spare the ancient world10 when he brought the flood on its ungodly people,11 but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;12 6 if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes,13 and made them an example14 of what is going to happen to the ungodly;15 7 and if he rescued Lot,16 a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men17
