8 iLikewise also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject authority, and jspeak evil of 5dignitaries. 9 Yet Michael the archangel, in 6contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, k“The Lord rebuke you!” 10 lBut these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe to them! For they have gone in the way mof Cain, nhave run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished oin the rebellion of Korah.
12 These are 7spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried 8about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; 13 praging waves of the sea, qfoaming up their own shame; wandering stars rfor whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, 15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the sharsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they tmouth great swelling words, uflattering people to gain advantage. 17 vBut you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: 18 how they told you that wthere would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. 19 These are 9sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.
20 But you, beloved, xbuilding yourselves up on your most holy faith, ypraying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, zlooking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
