2 Peter 2

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one There were false prophets among the people, just as you will have false teachers who introduce destructive heresies and, rejecting the Lord who has redeemed them, will bring themselves quick death.
2 And many will follow their debauchery, and through them the path of truth will be reproached.

3 And out of covetousness they will catch you with flattering words; the court has long been ready for them, and their doom is not slumbering.
four For if God did not spare the sins of the sinners, but tied the bonds of hellish darkness, he betrayed him to be watched for punishment;
5 and if he didn’t spare the first world, but in eight souls he kept the family of Noah, a preacher of truth, when he brought a flood to the world of the wicked;
6 and if the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, having condemned to extermination, turned into ashes, setting an example for future wicked people,

7 but the righteous Lot, weary of the conversion between people passionately depraved, delivered
8 (for this righteous man, living between them, was daily tormented in a righteous soul, seeing and hearing the deeds of the lawless) -
9 then, of course, the Lord knows how to deliver the pious from temptation, and to observe the wicked by the day of judgment, for punishment,

10 and most of all those who follow the nasty lusts of the flesh despise the authorities, the daring, the high-handed and not afraid to slander the higher ones,
eleven while the Angels, surpassing them in strength and strength, do not pronounce reproachful judgment on them before the Lord.
12 They, like wordless animals driven by nature, born to capture and exterminate, slandering what they do not understand, will be destroyed in their corruption.
13 They will receive the retribution of lawlessness, for they lay pleasure in daily luxury; shamers and defilers, they enjoy their deceits, feasting with you.
fourteen Their eyes are filled with voluptuousness and ceaseless sin; they seduce unconfirmed souls; their heart is accustomed to covetousness: these are the sons of the curse.
fifteen Leaving the straight path, they got lost, following in the footsteps of Balaam, son of Vosorov, who loved the bribe of the unrighteous,
16 but he was convicted of his iniquity: the dumb donkey, speaking in a human voice, stopped the prophet's madness.
17 These are waterless springs, clouds, and haze driven by a storm: they have prepared the darkness of eternal darkness.
eighteen For, uttering inflated idle talk, they catch in the carnal lusts and debauchery of those who are barely behind those who are in error.
19 They promise them freedom, being themselves the slaves of corruption; for whoever is defeated by whom is also a slave.
twenty For if, having avoided the filth of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome by them, then the latter is worse for those worse than the former.
21 It would be better for them not to know the paths of truth than, having known, to return back from the holy commandment devoted to them.
22 But it happens to them according to a true proverb: the dog returns to his vomit, and: the washed pig [goes] wallowing in the mud.
