Second Peter 2

2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as
 there will be false teachers among you, who will privately
 bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought
 them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2:2 And many will follow their pernicious ways; by reason of
 whom the way of truth will be evil spoken of.
2:3 And through covetousness they will with feigned words make
 merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth
 not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast
 [them] down to hell, and delivered [them] into chains of
 darkness, to be reserved to judgment;
2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth
 [person], a preacher of righteousness, bringing the flood upon
 the world of the ungodly;
2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes,
 condemned [them] with an overthrow, making [them] an example to
 those that afterwards should live ungodly lives.
2:7 And delivered just Lot, grieved with the habitual lewdness
 of the wicked:
2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and
 hearing, grieved [his] righteous soul from day to day with
 [their] unlawful deeds;)
2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of
 temptations, and to reserve the unjust to the day of judgment
 to be punished:
2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of
 uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous [are they],
 self-willed; they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
2:11 Whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, bring
 not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and
 destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not;
 and shall utterly perish in their own corruption:
2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, [as] they
 that count it pleasure to riot in the day-time. Spots [they
 are] and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own
 deceivings while they feast with you;
2:14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from
 sin; beguiling unstable souls: they have a heart exercised with
 covetous practices; cursed children:
2:15 Who have forsaken the right way, and gone astray, following
 the way of Balaam [the son] of Bosor, who loved the wages of
2:16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking
 with man's voice, forbad the madness of the prophet.
2:17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with
 a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
2:18 For when they speak great swelling [words] of vanity, they
 allure through the lusts of the flesh, [through much]
 wantonness, those that had quite escaped from them who live in
2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the
 servants of corruption: for by whom a man is overcome, by the
 same is he brought into bondage.
2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world
 through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they
 are again entangled in them, and overcome, the latter end is
 worse with them than the beginning.
2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way
 of righteousness, than, after they have known [it], to turn
 from the holy commandment delivered to them.
2:22 But it hath happened to them according to the true proverb,
 The dog [is] turned to his own vomit again; and, The sow that
 was washed, to her wallowing in the mire.
