12These are the men who are ahiddenreefs1in your lovefeasts when they feast with you 2withoutfear, caring for themselves; 3cloudswithoutwater, 4carriedalong by winds; autumntreeswithoutfruit, bdoublydead, 5uprooted;
136wildwaves of the sea, casting up 7their owncshamelikefoam; wanderingstars, 8for whom the dblackdarkness has been reservedforever.
It was also about these men that 9Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, "10Behold, the Lordcame with emanythousands of His holyones,
1511to executejudgment upon all, and to convictall the ungodly of all their ungodlydeedswhich they have done in an ungodlyway, and of all the harshthingswhich12ungodlysinners have spokenagainst Him."
16These are 13grumblers, findingfault, 14followingafter their own lusts; fthey speak15arrogantly, flatteringpeople16for the sake of gaining an advantage.
But you, 17beloved, 18ought to remember the words that were spokenbeforehand by 19the apostles of our LordJesusChrist,
that they were saying to you, "20In the lasttime there will be mockers, 21followingafter their ownungodlylusts."
19These are the ones who causedivisions, g22worldly-minded, hdevoid of the Spirit.
But you, 23beloved, 24buildingyourselves up on your mostholy25faith, 26praying in the HolySpirit,
21keepyourselves in the love of God, 27waitinganxiously for the mercy of our LordJesusChrist to eternallife.
And havemercy on some, who are doubting;
