2 Peter 2:17-22 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
17 These [people] are waterless springs and mists driven by a hurricane, for whom the gloom of darkness has been reserved. 18 {For by speaking high-sounding but empty words}a, they entice with desires of the flesh [and] with licentiousness those who are scarcely escaping from those who live in error, 19 promising them freedom [although they]b themselves are slaves of depravity. For to whatever someone succumbs, by this he is alsoc enslaved. 20 For if, [after they]d have escaped from the defilements of the world through the knowledge of the Lorde and Savior Jesus Christ, and they are again entangled in these [things] [and] succumb to [them], the last [state] has become worse for them than the first. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than having known [it], to turn back from the holy commandment that had been delivered to them. 22 The [statement] of the true proverb has happened to them, "A dog returns to its own vomit,"f and "A sow, [after]g washing herself, [returns]h to wallowing in the mud."i
