1 Jude, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to the ones beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ, called.

2 Mercy to you, and peace, and love, may it be multiplied.

3 Beloved, making all diligence to write to you concerning our common salvation, I had necessity to write to you exhorting you to contend for the faith once having been delivered to the holy ones.

4 For certain men slipped in, the ones long ago written before into this judgment, ungodly, transposing the grace of our God into licentiousness and denying our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

5 And I intend to remind you all, you all having known all things once, that the Lord, having saved a people from the land of Egypt, afterwards destroyed the ones not having believed.

6 And angels, the ones not having kept their own beginning, but having left behind their own dwelling place, He has kept with everlasting bonds under blackness into the judgment of the great day.

7 As Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, in like manner to these, having committed prostitution and having departed after different flesh, are set before as an example, undergoing the punishment of everlasting fire.

8 Likewise, nevertheless, these men also dreaming, on the one hand, defile the flesh, set aside lordship, but on the other hand, and blaspheme glories.

9 But Michael the archangel, when debating with the devil, he was disputing concerning the body of Moses, did not dare bring upon a judgment of blasphemy, but he said, “May the Lord rebuke you.”

10 But these men on the one hand, blaspheme as many things they do not know, but on the other hand, as many things they understand naturally, as unreasoning living creatures, in these things they are corrupted.

11 Woe to them because they went the way of Cain, and were poured out by the error of Balaam for wages, and perished by the dispute of Korah.

12 These are the ones feasting together without fear, hidden reefs in your love feasts, shepherding themselves, waterless clouds being carried along by winds, late autumn trees without fruit, having died twice, having been uprooted;

13 wild waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame, wandering stars, to whom the blackness of darkness has been kept into the age.

14 And Enoch, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied to these men, saying, “Behold, the Lord came among ten thousand of His holy ones,

15 to do judgment against all, and to expose every soul concerning all of their ungodly works which they act ungodly, and concerning all of the hard things which ungodly sinners said against Him.”

16 These men are grumblers, complainers, going according to their own lusts, and their mouth speaks arrogant things, marveling at faces for the advantage of favor.

17 But you, beloved, remember the sayings foretold by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ,

18 that they were saying to you, “Upon the last time there will be mockers, going according to their own ungodly lusts.”

19 These men are the ones dividing, natural men, not having the Spirit.

20 But you, beloved, building yourselves with your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,

21 keep yourselves in the love of God, anticipating the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ into everlasting life.

22 And show mercy to some doubting;

23 save some, snatching them out from the fire, and to others show mercy in fear, hating even the garment stained from the flesh.

24 And to the One being able to guard you from stumbling and to cause you to stand before His glory blameless in exultation.

25 To the only God our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, glory, majesty, might and authority, before all of the age, even now, and into all of the ages. Amen.
