1a1Jude, a 2bond-servant of JesusChrist, and brother of bJames, To 3those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and 4kept for JesusChrist:
25May mercy and peace and love6be multiplied to you.
37Beloved, while I was makingeveryeffort to write you about our 8commonsalvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you 9contendearnestly for 10the faith which was once for all11handeddown to 12the csaints.
For certainpersons have 13crept in unnoticed, those who were longbeforehandd14marked out for thiscondemnation, ungodlypersons who turn15the grace of our God into 16licentiousness and 17deny our onlyMaster and Lord, JesusChrist.
5Now I desire to 18remind you, though 19you knowallthingsonce for all, that ethe Lord, 20after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, fsubsequentlydestroyedthose who did not believe.
And 21angels who did not keep their owndomain, but abandoned their properabode, He has 22kept in eternalbondsunderdarkness for the judgment of the greatday,
