The New Testament


1:1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them

that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ,

and called: 1:2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.


1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common

salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you

that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once

delivered unto the saints.


1:4 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.


1:5 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.


1:6 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.


1:7 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.


1:8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise

dominion, and speak evil of dignities.


1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he

railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.


1:10 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.


1:11 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.


1:12 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; 1:13 Raging waves of the sea,

foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the

blackness of darkness for ever.


1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these,

saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, 1:15

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.


1:16 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.


1:17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of

the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 1:18 How that they told you

spotted by the flesh.


1:24 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, 1:25 To the only wise God our Savoir, be glory and majesty,

dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
