3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
5 I will therefore put you in remembrance , though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like * manner, giving themselves over to fornication , and going after strangeb flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves .
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds [they are] without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead , plucked up by the roots ;
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed , and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
22 And of some have compassion , making a difference :
24 Now unto him that is able to keep you * from falling, and to present [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
