2 Peter 2:10-12

10 and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority. Bold and wilful, they are not afraid to revile the glorious ones,
11 whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not pronounce a reviling judgment upon them before the Lord.
12 But these, like irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and killed, reviling in matters of which they are ignorant, will be destroyed in the same destruction with them,

1 John 4:6

6 We are of God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and he who is not of God does not listen to us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

3 John 1:9-11

9 I have written something to the church; but Diot'rephes, who likes to put himself first, does not acknowledge my authority.
10 So if I come, I will bring up what he is doing, prating against me with evil words. And not content with that, he refuses himself to welcome the brethren, and also stops those who want to welcome them and puts them out of the church.
11 Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. He who does good is of God; he who does evil has not seen God.

Jude 1:8-10

8 Yet in like manner these men in their dreamings defile the flesh, reject authority, and revile the glorious ones.
9 But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, disputed about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a reviling judgment upon him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you."
10 But these men revile whatever they do not understand, and by those things that they know by instinct as irrational animals do, they are destroyed.
