2 Peter 2:18–22

18 For when uthey speak great swelling words of vanity, they iallure through the lusts of the flesh, through vmuch wantonness, wthose that were ||xclean escaped from them who live in error. 19 While they promise them yliberty, they themselves are zthe servants of bcorruption: for zof whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20 For if after they whave escaped the apollutions of the world bthrough the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again centangled therein, and overcome, dthe latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21 For eit had been better for them not fto have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, gto turn from hthe holy commandment delivered unto them. 22 But it is happened unto them according to the true iproverb, kThe dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her lwallowing in the mire.
