Woe to them! For they go the way of Cain, and abandon themselves to Balaam's error for the sake of gain, and perish in Korah's rebellion.
These are blemishes a on your love-feasts, while they feast with you without fear, feeding themselves. b They are waterless clouds carried along by the winds; autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, uprooted;
wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the deepest darkness has been reserved forever.
