1 But afalse prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be bfalse teachers camong you, who will dsecretly introduce edestructive heresies, even fdenying the gMaster who hbought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
8 (for by what he saw and heard that arighteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds),
11 awhereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.
12 But athese, like unreasoning animals, bborn as creatures of instinct to be captured and killed, reviling where they have no knowledge, will in 1the destruction of those creatures also be destroyed,
16 but he received a rebuke for his own transgression, afor a mute donkey, speaking with a voice of a man, restrained the madness of the prophet.
19 promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for aby what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved.
20 For if, after they have aescaped the defilements of the world by bthe knowledge of the cLord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again dentangled in them and are overcome, ethe last state has become worse for them than the first.
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
