2 Peter 2

2Pt 2:1 Yet false prophets came among the people, and there will also be false teachers among you. They will smuggle in ruin and even disown the One who bought them and owns them! So they will bring sudden destruction upon themselves
2Pt 2:2 and many will follow along with reckless abandon. Because of them, the way of the truth will be slandered;
2Pt 2:3 they will greedily exploit you by means of smooth talk. But their judgment is not waiting forever, and their destruction hasn’t dozed off.
2Pt 2:4 For if God did not spare the Messengers who failed, but bound and imprisoned them in the gloom of Tartarus, and handed them over to be retained for judgment,
2Pt 2:5 and if he did not spare the ancient world (except for protecting eight, one of which was Noah, an announcer of justice) but inflicted the irreverent world with the Flood,
2Pt 2:6 and if he reduced the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes in a catastrophe and condemned them as an example for the irreverent
2Pt 2:7 (having rescued righteous Lot who lived among them
2Pt 2:8 and whose soul was tormented day and night by their lawless acts),
2Pt 2:9 then the Master knew full well how to rescue the devout out of trials, yet hold the unrighteous in reserve for Judgment Day.
2Pt 2:10 Yet there are those who bow to the flesh and defile it in lust, daring to despise mastery. They are given to self-gratification and do not hesitate to slander,
2Pt 2:11 whereas Messengers, who are greater in strength and power, do not bring slanderous judgment against them before the Master.
2Pt 2:12 Yet in their slandering they doom themselves, like unthinking animals ignorant of the fact that they are born into captivity and destined to die;
2Pt 2:13 their fate is the wage they earned from injustice. They are the ones who indulge in the luxury of daily self-gratification. They are blemishes and flaws who indulge in their seductions while they party with you.
2Pt 2:14 Their eyes are saturated with adultery and they never stop luring unstable souls into failing. They are accursed; their hearts have been conditioned by greed.
2Pt 2:15 Once they left the straight path they were led astray themselves (like Balaam of Beor, who loved the wages of injustice.
2Pt 2:16 Yet his own lawlessness was exposed by a mute beast of burden who was caused by God to speak with a human voice to prevent the prophet’s insanity).
2Pt 2:17 They are waterless springs and storm-driven mists for whom the gloomy darkness has been reserved.
2Pt 2:18 Made to utter inflated and conceited things, they use the lusts of the flesh to lure back into recklessness the few who are barely escaping from those practicing deception.
2Pt 2:19 They like to be professors of freedom, but they are inherently enslaved themselves to corruption, for it degrades those it has enslaved.
2Pt 2:20 Because if they fled from the foul pollution of the world and recognized our Master and Savior Jesus the Anointed, then got involved in it again, they have become worse off than before.
2Pt 2:21 It would have been better for them to never have recognized the right way than to recognize the holy precept they had been given and then turn back.
2Pt 2:22 The proverbs about them are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A washed pig returns to its wallowing in the mud.”
2Pt 2:1 εγενοντο δε και ψευδοπροφηται εν τω λαω ὡς και εν ὑμιν εσονται ψευδοδιδασκαλοι οἱτινες παρεισαξουσιν αἱρεσεις απωλειας και τον αγορασαντα αυτους δεσποτην αρνουμενοι επαγοντες ἑαυτοις ταχινην απωλειαν

2Pt 2:9 οιδεν κυριος ευσεβεις εκ πειρασμου αδικους δε εις ἡμεραν κρισεως κολαζομενους τηρειν
2Pt 2:10 μαλιστα δε τους οπισω σαρκος εν επιθυμια μιασμου πορευομενους και κυριοτητος καταφρονουντας τολμηται αυθαδεις δοξας ου τρεμουσιν βλασφημουντες
2Pt 2:11 ὁπου αγγελοι ισχυϊ και δυναμει μειζονες οντες ου φερουσιν κατ᾽ αυτων παρα κυριου βλασφημον κρισιν
2Pt 2:12 οὑτοι δε ὡς αλογα ζωα γεγεννημενα φυσικα εις ἁλωσιν και φθοραν εν οἱς αγνοουσιν βλασφημουντες εν τη φθορα αυτων και φθαρησονται
2Pt 2:13 αδικουμενοi μισθον αδικιας ἡδονην ἡγουμενοι την εν τρυφην σπιλοι και μωμοι εντρυφωντες εν ταις απαταις αυτων συνευωχουμενοι
2Pt 2:14 οφθαλμους εχοντες μεστους μοιχαλιδος και ακαταπαυστους ἁμαρτιας δελεαζοντες ψυχας αστηρικτους καρδιαν γεγυμνασμενην πλεονεξιας εχοντες καταρας τεκνα
2Pt 2:15 καταλειποντες ευθειαν ὁδον επλανηθησαν εξακολουθησαντες τη ὁδω του βαλααμ του βοσορ ὁς μισθον αδικιας ηγαπησεν
2Pt 2:16 ελεγξιν δε εσχεν ιδιας παρανομιας ὑποζυγιον αφωνον εν ανθρωπου φωνη φθεγξαμενον εκωλυσεν την του προφητου παραφρονιαν
2Pt 2:17 οὑτοι εισιν πηγαι ανυδροι και ὁμιχλαι ὑπο λαιλαπος ελαυνομεναι οἱς ὁ ζοφος του σκοτους τετηρηται
2Pt 2:18 ὑπερογκα γαρ ματαιοτητος φθεγγομενοι δελεαζουσιν εν επιθυμιαις σαρκος ασελγειαις τους ολιγως αποφευγοντας τους εν πλανη αναστρεφομενους
2Pt 2:19 ελευθεριαν αυτοις επαγγελλομενοι αυτοι δουλοι ὑπαρχοντες της φθορας ὡ γαρ τις ἡττηται τουτω δεδουλωται
2Pt 2:20 ει. γαρ αποφυγοντες τα μιασματα του κοσμου εν επιγνωσει του κυριου και σωτηρος ιησου χριστου τουτοις δε παλιν εμπλακεντες ἡττωνται γεγονεν αυτοις τα εσχατα χειρονα των πρωτων
2Pt 2:21 κρειττον γαρ ην αυτοις μη επεγνωκεναι την ὁδον της δικαιοσυνης η επιγνουσιν ὑποστρεψαι εκ της παραδοθεισης αυτοις ἁγιας εντολης
2Pt 2:22 συμβεβηκεν αυτοις το της αληθους παροιμιας κυων επιστρεψας επι το ιδιον εξεραμα και ὑς λουσαμενη εἱς κυλισμον βορβορου
