Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:1 - But there were false prophets also among the people, as there shall be also among you false teachers, who shall bring in by the bye destructive heresies, and deny the master that bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:2 - and many shall follow their dissolute ways, through whom the way of the truth shall be blasphemed.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:3 - And through covetousness, with well-turned words, will they make merchandise of you: for whom judgment of old is not idle, and their destruction slumbers not.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:4 - For if God spared not the angels who had sinned, but having cast them down to the deepest pit of gloom has delivered them to chains of darkness to be kept for judgment;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:5 - and spared not the old world, but preserved Noe, the eighth, a preacher of righteousness, having brought in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:6 - and having reduced the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha to ashes, condemned them with an overthrow, setting them as an example to those that should afterwards live an ungodly life;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:7 - and saved righteous Lot, distressed with the abandoned conversation of the godless,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:8 - (for the righteous man through seeing and hearing, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul day after day with their lawless works,)
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:9 - the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of trial, and to keep the unjust to the day of judgment to be punished;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:10 - and specially those who walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise lordship. Bold are they, self-willed; they do not fear speaking injuriously of dignities:
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:11 - when angels, who are greater in might and power, do not bring against them, before the Lord, an injurious charge.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:12 - But these, as natural animals without reason, made to be caught and destroyed, speaking injuriously in things they are ignorant of, shall also perish in their own corruption,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:13 - receiving the reward of unrighteousness; accounting ephemeral indulgence pleasure; spots and blemishes, rioting in their own deceits, feasting with you;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:14 - having eyes full of adultery, and that cease not from sin, alluring unestablished souls; having a heart practised in covetousness, children of curse;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:15 - having left the straight way they have gone astray, having followed in the path of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the reward of unrighteousness;
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:16 - but had reproof of his own wickedness -- the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the folly of the prophet.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:17 - These are springs without water, and mists driven by storm, to whom the gloom of darkness is reserved for ever.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:18 - For while speaking great highflown words of vanity, they allure with the lusts of the flesh, by dissoluteness, those who have just fled those who walk in error,
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:19 - promising them liberty, while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a man is subdued, by him is he also brought into slavery.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:20 - For if after having escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, again entangled, they are subdued by these, their last state is worse than the first.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:21 - For it were better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them.
Unchecked Copy Box2Pe 2:22 - But that word of the true proverb has happened to them: The dog has turned back to his own vomit; and, The washed sow to her rolling in mud.
DBY

In 1867, John Nelson Darby translated the New Testament from Greek into English. Further revisions were done in 1872 and 1884. Darby’s work was first published as The Holy Scriptures: A New Translation from the Original Languages by J. N. Darby. After Darby’s death in 1882, some of his students worked together to produce the complete Darby Bible based on the Masoretic Hebrew text, Darby’s German (Elberfelder), and the French (Pau) translations. In 1890, the first complete Darby Bible was published in English. This translation of the Bible is in the public domain.
