Condemnation of the Ungodly False Teachers

5 Now I want to remind you, [although] you know everything once and for all,a that Jesus,b having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, the second time destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And [the] angels who did not keep to their own domain but deserted their proper dwelling place, he has kept in eternal bonds under deep gloom for the judgment of the great day, 7 as Sodom and Gomorrah and the towns around them indulged in sexual immorality and {pursued unnatural desire}c [in] the same way as these, are exhibited as an example [by]d undergoing the punishment of eternal fire. 8 Despite that, in the same way also these [men], [because of their]e dreams, defile the flesh and reject authority and blaspheme majestic beings. 9 But Michael the archangel, when he argued with the devil, disputing concerning the body of Moses, did not dare to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!" 10 But these persons blaspheme all that they do not understand, and all that they understand by instinct like the irrational animals, by these [things] they are being destroyed. 11 Woe to them! For they have traveled in the way of Cain, and have given themselves up to the error of Balaam for gain, and have perishedf in the rebellion of Korah. 12 These are the ones feasting together without reverence, hidden reefs at your love feasts, caring for themselves, waterless clouds carried away by winds, late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, uprooted, 13 wild waves of the sea foaming up their own shameful deeds, wandering stars, for whom the deep gloom of darkness has been reserved for eternity. 14 And Enoch, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied aboutg these [people], saying, "Behold, the Lord came with tens of thousands of his holy ones 15 to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodlyh concerning all their ungodly deeds that they have committed in an ungodly way, and concerning all the harsh things that ungodly sinners have spoken against him. 16 These [people] are grumblers, discontented, proceeding according to theiri desires, and their mouths speaking pompous [words], {showing partiality to gain an advantage}j.
