  • 1 Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to those who are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:
  • 2 Mercy to you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.
  • 3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you about the common salvation, it was necessary for me to write to you, and urge you that you should contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
  • 4 Because, there are certain men who crept in unnoticed, who long ago were ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lustfulness and denying the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 5 Therefore I want to remind you, although you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
  • 6 And the angels who did not keep their first domain, but left their own habitat, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day.
  • 7 Likewise, Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in the same manner, giving themselves over to sexual immorality and going after other flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
  • 8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise authority, and speak evil of those highly esteemed.
  • 9 Yet Michael the archangel, while contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”
  • 10 But these speak evil of those things they know nothing of; but what they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.
  • 11 Woe to them! Because, they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.
  • 12 These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you, feeding themselves without reverence. They are clouds without water, carried about by winds; trees whose fruit withers, without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots;
  • 13 raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
  • 14 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied about these men, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,
  • 15 to execute judgment upon all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly manner, and of all their harsh words which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
  • 16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and their mouth speaks great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage.
  • 17 But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ:
  • 18 how that they told you there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts.
  • 19 These are those who separate themselves, sensual, not having the Spirit.
  • 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,
  • 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
  • 22 And on some have compassion, making a distinction;
  • 23 but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the clothing defiled by the flesh.
  • 24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
  • 25 To the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.
