2 Peter 2:9-18 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible

They are stains and blemishes, 13reveling in their edeceptions, as they 14carouse with you, 14 having eyes full of adultery that never cease from sin, 15enticing 16unstable souls, having a heart trained in 17greed, 18accursed children; 15 forsaking 19the right way, they have gone astray, having followed 20the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved 21the wages of unrighteousness; 16 but he received a rebuke for his own transgression, 22for a mute donkey, speaking with a voice of a man, restrained the madness of the prophet. 17 These are 23springs without water and mists driven by a storm, 24for whom the fblack darkness has been reserved. 18 For speaking out 25arrogant words of 26vanity they 27entice by fleshly desires, by 28sensuality, those who barely 29escape from the ones who live in error,
