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.

Jude 1 (KJVS)

[1] Jude G2455, the servant G1401 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, and G1161 brother G80 of James G2385, to them that are sanctified G37 (PerfPasPtc) by G1722 God G2316 the Father G3962, and G2532 preserved G5083 (PerfPasPtc) in Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, [and] called G2822:
[2] Mercy G1656 unto you G5213, and G2532 peace G1515, and G2532 love G26, be multiplied G4129 (AorPasOpt).
[3] Beloved G27, when I gave G4160 (PresMidPtc) all G3956 diligence G4710 to write G1125 (PresActInf) unto you G5213 of G4012 the common G2839 salvation G4991, it was G2192 needful G318 for me G2192 (Aor2ActInd) to write G1125 (AorActInf) unto you G5213, and exhort G3870 (PresActPtc) [you] that ye should earnestly contend G1864 (PresMidPasDepInf) for the faith G4102 which was once G530 delivered G3860 (AorPasPtc) unto the saints G40.
[4] For G1063 there are certain G5100 men G444 crept in unawares G3921 (AorActInd), who G3588 were before G4270 of old G3819 ordained G4270 (PerfPasPtc) to G1519 this G5124 condemnation G2917, ungodly men G765, turning G3346 (PresActPtc) the grace G5485 of our G2257 God G2316 into G1519 lasciviousness and G2532 denying G720 (PresMidPasDepPtc) the only G3441 Lord G1203 God G2316, and G2532 our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
[5] I will G1014 (PresMidPasDepInd) therefore G1161 put G5279 you G5209 in remembrance G5279 (AorActInf), though ye G5209 once G530 knew G1492 (PerfActPtc) this G5124, how that G3754 the Lord G2962, having saved G4982 (AorActPtc) the people G2992 out of G1537 the land G1093 of Egypt G125, afterward G1208 destroyed G622 (AorActInd) them that believed G4100 (AorActPtc) not G3361.
[6] And G5037 the angels G32 which kept G5083 (AorActPtc) not G3361 their G1438 first estate G746, but G235 left G620 (Aor2ActPtc) their own G2398 habitation G3613, he hath reserved G5083 (PerfActInd) in everlasting G126 chains G1199 under G5259 darkness G2217 unto G1519 the judgment G2920 of the great G3173 day G2250.
[7] Even as G5613 Sodom G4670 and G2532 Gomorrha G1116, and G2532 the cities G4172 about G4012 them G846 in like G3664 G5125 manner G5158, giving themselves over to fornication G1608 (AorActPtc), and G2532 going G565 (Aor2ActPtc) after G3694 strange G2087 flesh G4561, are set forth for G4295 (PresMidPasDepInd) an example G1164, suffering G5254 (PresActPtc) the vengeance G1349 of eternal G166 fire G4442.
[8] Likewise G3668 G3305 also G2532 these G3778 [filthy] dreamers G1797 (PresMidPasDepPtc) defile G3392 (PresActInd) the flesh G3303 G4561, G1161 despise G114 (PresActInd) dominion G2963, and G1161 speak evil G987 (PresActInd) of dignities G1391.
[9] Yet G1161 Michael G3413 the archangel G743, when G3753 contending G1252 (PresMidPtc) with the devil G1228 he disputed G1256 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) about G4012 the body G4983 of Moses G3475, durst G5111 (AorActInd) not G3756 bring against him G2018 (Aor2ActInf) a railing G988 accusation G2920, but G235 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), The Lord G2962 rebuke G2008 (AorActOpt) thee G4671.
[10] But G1161 these G3778 speak evil of G987 (PresActInd) those things which G3745 G3303 they know G1492 (PerfActInd) not G3756: but G1161 what G3745 they know G1987 (PresMidPasDepInd) naturally G5447, as G5613 brute G249 beasts G2226, in G1722 those things G5125 they corrupt themselves G5351 (PresPasInd).
[11] Woe G3759 unto them G846! for G3754 they have gone G4198 (AorPasDepInd) in the way G3598 of Cain G2535, and G2532 ran greedily after G1632 (AorPasInd) the error G4106 of Balaam G903 for reward G3408, and G2532 perished G622 (Aor2MidInd) in the gainsaying G485 of Core G2879.
[12] These G3778 are G1526 (PresInd) spots G4694 in G1722 your G5216 feasts of charity G26, when they feast G4910 (PresMidPasDepPtc) with you G5213, feeding G4165 (PresActPtc) themselves G1438 without fear G870: clouds G3507 [they are] without water G504, carried about G4064 (PresPasPtc) of G5259 winds G417; trees G1186 whose fruit withereth G5352, without fruit G175, twice G1364 dead G599 (Aor2ActPtc), plucked up by the roots G1610 (AorPasPtc);
[13] Raging G66 waves G2949 of the sea G2281, foaming out G1890 (PresActPtc) their own G1438 shame G152; wandering G4107 stars G792, to whom G3739 is reserved G5083 (PerfPasInd) the blackness G2217 of darkness G4655 for G1519 ever G165.
[14] And G1161 Enoch G1802 also G2532, the seventh G1442 from G575 Adam G76, prophesied G4395 (AorActInd) of these G5125, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), the Lord G2962 cometh G2064 (Aor2ActInd) with G1722 ten thousands G3461 of his G846 saints G40,
[15] To execute G4160 (AorActInf) judgment G2920 upon G2596 all G3956, and G2532 to convince G1827 (AorActInf) all G3956 that are ungodly G765 among them G846 of G4012 all G3956 their G846 ungodly G763 deeds G2041 which G3739 they have ungodly committed G764 (AorActInd), and G2532 of G4012 all G3956 their hard G4642 [speeches] which G3739 ungodly G765 sinners G268 have spoken G2980 (AorActInd) against G2596 him G846.
[16] These G3778 are G1526 (PresInd) murmurers G1113, complainers G3202, walking G4198 (PresMidPasDepPtc) after G2596 their own G846 lusts G1939; and G2532 their G846 mouth G4750 speaketh G2980 (PresActInd) great swelling G5246 [words], having men’s persons G4383 in admiration G2296 (PresActPtc) because G5484 of advantage G5622.
[17] But G1161, beloved G27, remember G3415 (AorPasImpr) ye G5210 the words G4487 which G3588 were spoken before G4280 (PerfPasPtc) of G5259 the apostles G652 of our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547;
[18] How G3754 that G3754 they told G3004 (ImpfActInd) you G5213 there should be G2071 (FutInd) mockers G1703 in G1722 the last G2078 time G5550, who should walk G4198 (PresMidPasDepPtc) after G2596 their own G1438 ungodly G763 lusts G1939.
[19] These G3778 be G1526 (PresInd) they who separate G592 (PresActPtc) themselves G1438, sensual G5591, having G2192 (PresActPtc) not G3361 the Spirit G4151.
[20] But G1161 ye G5210, beloved G27, building up G2026 (PresActPtc) yourselves G1438 on your G5216 most holy G40 faith G4102, praying G4336 (PresMidPasDepPtc) in G1722 the Holy G40 Ghost G4151,
[21] Keep G5083 (AorActImpr) yourselves G1438 in G1722 the love G26 of God G2316, looking for G4327 (PresMidPasDepPtc) the mercy G1656 of our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 unto G1519 eternal G166 life G2222.
[22] And G2532 G3303 of some G3739 have compassion G1653 (PresActImpr), making a difference G1252 (PresMidPtc):
[23] And G1161 others G3739 save G4982 (PresActImpr) with G1722 fear G5401, pulling G726 (PresActPtc) [them] out of G1537 the fire G4442; hating G3404 (PresActPtc) even G2532 the garment G5509 spotted G4695 (PerfPasPtc) by G575 the flesh G4561.
[24] Now G1161 unto him that is able G1410 (PresMidPasDepPtc) to keep G5442 (AorActInf) you G5209 G846 from falling G679, and G2532 to present G2476 (AorActInf) [you] faultless G299 before the presence G2714 of his G846 glory G1391 with G1722 exceeding joy G20,
[25] To the only G3441 wise G4680 God G2316, our G2257 Saviour G4990, [be] glory G1391 and G2532 majesty G3172, dominion G2904 and G2532 power G1849, both G2532 now G3568 and G2532 ever G1519 G3956 G165. Amen G281.

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.
