Jude 1 (WEBP)

[1] Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ:
[2] May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.
[3] Beloved, while I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I was constrained to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.
[4] For there are certain men who crept in secretly, even those who were long ago written about for this condemnation: ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into indecency, and denying our only Master, God, and Lord, Jesus Christ.
[5] Now I desire to remind you, though you already know this, that the Lord, having saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who didn’t believe.
[6] Angels who didn’t keep their first domain, but deserted their own dwelling place, he has kept in everlasting bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day.
[7] Even as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, having in the same way as these given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are shown as an example, suffering the punishment of eternal fire.
[8] Yet in the same way, these also in their dreaming defile the flesh, despise authority, and slander celestial beings.
[9] But Michael, the archangel, when contending with the devil and arguing about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him an abusive condemnation, but said, “May the Lord rebuke you!”
[10] But these speak evil of whatever things they don’t know. They are destroyed in these things that they understand naturally, like the creatures without reason.
[11] Woe to them! For they went in the way of Cain, and ran riotously in the error of Balaam for hire, and perished in Korah’s rebellion.
[12] These are hidden rocky reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you, shepherds who without fear feed themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
[13] wild waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the blackness of darkness has been reserved forever.
[14] About these also Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with ten thousands of his holy ones,
[15] to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their works of ungodliness which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”
[16] These are murmurers and complainers, walking after their lusts—and their mouth speaks proud things—showing respect of persons to gain advantage.
[17] But you, beloved, remember the words which have been spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.
[18] They said to you, “In the last time there will be mockers, walking after their own ungodly lusts.”
[19] These are those who cause divisions and are sensual, not having the Spirit.
[20] But you, beloved, keep building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.
[21] Keep yourselves in God’s love, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
[22] On some have compassion, making a distinction,
[23] and some save, snatching them out of the fire with fear, hating even the clothing stained by the flesh.
[24] Now to him who is able to keep them from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory in great joy,
[25] to God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.

[4] For there are certain men crept in unawares (), who were before of old ordained () to this condemnation , ungodly men , turning () the grace of our God into lasciviousness and denying () the only Lord God , and our Lord Jesus Christ .
[5] I will () therefore put you in remembrance (), though ye once knew () this , how that the Lord , having saved () the people out of the land of Egypt , afterward destroyed () them that believed () not .
[6] And the angels which kept () not their first estate , but left () their own habitation , he hath reserved () in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day .
[7] Even as Sodom and Gomorrha , and the cities about them in like manner , giving themselves over to fornication (), and going () after strange flesh , are set forth for () an example , suffering () the vengeance of eternal fire .
[8] Likewise also these [filthy] dreamers () defile () the flesh , despise () dominion , and speak evil () of dignities .
[9] Yet Michael the archangel , when contending () with the devil he disputed () about the body of Moses , durst () not bring against him () a railing accusation , but said (), The Lord rebuke () thee .
[10] But these speak evil of () those things which they know () not : but what they know () naturally , as brute beasts , in those things they corrupt themselves ().
[11] Woe unto them ! for they have gone () in the way of Cain , and ran greedily after () the error of Balaam for reward , and perished () in the gainsaying of Core .
[12] These are () spots in your feasts of charity , when they feast () with you , feeding () themselves without fear : clouds [they are] without water , carried about () of winds ; trees whose fruit withereth , without fruit , twice dead (), plucked up by the roots ();
[13] Raging waves of the sea , foaming out () their own shame ; wandering stars , to whom is reserved () the blackness of darkness for ever .
[14] And Enoch also , the seventh from Adam , prophesied () of these , saying (), Behold (), the Lord cometh () with ten thousands of his saints ,
[15] To execute () judgment upon all , and to convince () all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed (), and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken () against him .
[16] These are () murmurers , complainers , walking () after their own lusts ; and their mouth speaketh () great swelling [words], having men’s persons in admiration () because of advantage .
[17] But , beloved , remember () ye the words which were spoken before () of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ ;
[18] How that they told () you there should be () mockers in the last time , who should walk () after their own ungodly lusts .
[19] These be () they who separate () themselves , sensual , having () not the Spirit .
[20] But ye , beloved , building up () yourselves on your most holy faith , praying () in the Holy Ghost ,
[21] Keep () yourselves in the love of God , looking for () the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life .
[22] And of some have compassion (), making a difference ():
[23] And others save () with fear , pulling () [them] out of the fire ; hating () even the garment spotted () by the flesh .
[24] Now unto him that is able () to keep () you from falling , and to present () [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy ,
[25] To the only wise God , our Saviour , [be] glory and majesty , dominion and power , both now and ever . Amen .

Young’s Literal Translation

Jude 1 (YLT)

[1] Judas, of Jesus Christ a servant, and brother of James, to those sanctified in God the Father, and in Jesus Christ kept-called,
[2] kindness to you, and peace, and love, be multiplied!
[3] Beloved, all diligence using to write to you concerning the common salvation, I had necessity to write to you, exhorting to agonize for the faith once delivered to the saints,
[4] for there did come in unobserved certain men, long ago having been written beforehand to this judgment, impious, the grace of our God perverting to lasciviousness, and our only Master, God, and Lord-Jesus Christ-denying,
[5] and to remind you I intend, you knowing once this, that the Lord, a people out of the land of Egypt having saved, again those who did not believe did destroy;
[6] messengers also, those who did not keep their own principality, but did leave their proper dwelling, to a judgment of a great day, in bonds everlasting, under darkness He hath kept,
[7] as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them, in like manner to these, having given themselves to whoredom, and gone after other flesh, have been set before-an example, of fire age-during, justice suffering.
[8] In like manner, nevertheless, those dreaming also the flesh indeed do defile, and lordship they put away, and dignities they speak evil of,
[9] yet Michael, the chief messenger, when, with the devil contending, he was disputing about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring up an evil-speaking judgment, but said, ‘The Lord rebuke thee!’
[10] and these, as many things indeed as they have not known, they speak evil of; and as many things as naturally (as the irrational beasts) they understand, in these they are corrupted;
[11] woe to them! because in the way of Cain they did go on, and to the deceit of Balaam for reward they did rush, and in the gainsaying of Korah they did perish.
[12] These are in your love-feasts craggy rocks; feasting together with you, without fear shepherding themselves; clouds without water, by winds carried about; trees autumnal, without fruit, twice dead, rooted up;
[13] wild waves of a sea, foaming out their own shames; stars going astray, to whom the gloom of the darkness to the age hath been kept.
[14] And prophesy also to these did the seventh from Adam-Enoch-saying, ‘Lo, the Lord did come in His saintly myriads,
[15] to do judgment against all, and to convict all their impious ones, concerning all their works of impiety that they did impiously, and concerning all the stiff things that speak against Him did impious sinners.’
[16] These are murmurers, repiners; according to their desires walking, and their mouth doth speak great swellings, giving admiration to persons for the sake of profit;
[17] and ye, beloved, remember ye the sayings spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ:
[18] that they said to you, that in the last time there shall be scoffers, after their own desires of impieties going on,
[19] these are those setting themselves apart, natural men, the Spirit not having.
[20] And ye, beloved, on your most holy faith building yourselves up, in the Holy Spirit praying,
[21] yourselves in the love of God keep ye, waiting for the kindness of our Lord Jesus Christ-to life age-during;
[22] and to some be kind, judging thoroughly,
[23] and some in fear save ye, out of the fire snatching, hating even the coat from the flesh spotted.
[24] And to Him who is able to guard you not stumbling, and to set you in the presence of His glory unblemished, in gladness,
[25] to the only wise God our Saviour, is glory and greatness, power and authority, both now and to all the ages! Amen.
