2 Peter 2 (KJV)

1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily(in secret) shall bring in damnable heresies (paganism), even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious (poisonous)  ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness (greed) shall they with feigned (fabricated) words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.




9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:




10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous (overconfident) are they, selfwilled (unmoved), they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
12 But these, as natural brute (unthinking) beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
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;




14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling (misleading) unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous (selfish) practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;




18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness (recklessness), those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty (self governing), they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.




20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
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 unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing (immersing) in the mire (slime).
