The Rise of False Prophets

1 But 1false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be 2false teachers 3among you, who will 4secretly introduce 5destructive heresies, even 6denying the 7Master who 8bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. 2 Many will follow their 9sensuality, and because of them 10the way of the truth will be 11maligned; 3 and in their 12greed they will 13exploit you with 14false words; 15their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. 4 For 16if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and 17committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare 18the ancient world, but preserved 19Noah, a apreacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a 20flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 and if He 21condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an 22example to those who would 23live ungodly lives thereafter; 7 and if He 24rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the 25sensual conduct of 26unprincipled men 8 (for by what he saw and heard that 27righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds ), 9 28then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from btemptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the 29day of judgment,
