2 Peter 2:2; 2 Peter 2:15; 2 Peter 2:21

2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of .
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray , following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
