Jude 1

The Warnings of History to the Ungodly

1 a1Jude, a 2bond-servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of bJames, To 3those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and 4kept for Jesus Christ:
2 5May mercy and peace and love 6be multiplied to you.
3 7Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our 8common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you 9contend earnestly for 10the faith which was once for all 11handed down to 12the csaints.
5 Now I desire to 18remind you, though 19you know all things once for all, that ethe Lord, 20after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, fsubsequently destroyed those who did not believe.
6 And 21angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has 22kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day,
8 Yet in the same way these men, also by dreaming, 28defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile iangelic majesties.
9 But 29Michael 30the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about 31the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, "32The Lord rebuke you!"
10 But 33these men revile the things which they do not understand; and 34the things which they know by instinct, 35like unreasoning animals, by these things they are jdestroyed.
11 Woe to them! For they have gone 36the way of Cain, and for pay kthey have rushed headlong into 37the error of Balaam, and 38perished in the rebellion of Korah.
14 It was also about these men that 47Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, "48Behold, the Lord came with pmany thousands of His holy ones,
15 49to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which 50ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."

Keep Yourselves in the Love of God

17 But you, 55beloved, 56ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by 57the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ,
18 that they were saying to you, "58In the last time there will be mockers, 59following after their own ungodly lusts."
19 These are the ones who cause divisions, r60worldly-minded, sdevoid * of the Spirit.
20 But you, 61beloved, 62building yourselves up on your most holy 63faith, 64praying in the Holy Spirit,
22 And have mercy on some, who are doubting;
23 save others, 66snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear, 67hating even the garment polluted by the flesh.
24 68Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to 69make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with 70great joy,
