Like the fallen angels. Having given themselves over to fornication (ekporneusasai). First aorist active participle feminine plural of ekporneuw, late and rare compound (perfective use of ek, outside the moral law), only here in N.T., but in LXX ( Genesis 38:24 ; Exodus 34:15 , etc.). Cf. aselgeian in verse Jude 1:4 . Strange flesh (sarko etera). Horrible licentiousness, not simply with women not their wives or in other nations, but even unnatural uses ( Romans 1:27 ) for which the very word "sodomy" is used ( Genesis 19:4-11 ).
