Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:8 - (for that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their lawless deeds):
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:9 - the Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment unto the day of judgment;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:10 - but chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of defilement, and despise dominion. Daring, self-willed, they tremble not to rail at dignities:
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:11 - whereas angels, though greater in might and power, bring not a railing judgment against them before the Lord.

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:13 - suffering wrong as the hire of wrong-doing; men that count it pleasure to revel in the day-time, spots and blemishes, revelling in their deceivings while they feast with you;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:14 - having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; enticing unstedfast souls; having a heart exercised in covetousness; children of cursing;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:15 - forsaking the right way, they went astray, having followed the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the hire of wrong-doing;

Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:18 - For, uttering great swelling words of vanity, they entice in the lusts of the flesh, by lasciviousness, those who are just escaping from them that live in error;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:19 - promising them liberty, while they themselves are bondservants of corruption; for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he also brought into bondage.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:20 - For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein and overcome, the last state is become worse with them than the first.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:21 - For it were better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after knowing it, to turn back from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:22 - It has happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog turning to his own vomit again, and the sow that had washed to wallowing in the mire.
