2 Peter 2:4-10
English Standard Version
4 For if God did not spare (A)angels when they sinned, but (B)cast them into hell[a] and committed them to chains[b] of gloomy darkness (C)to be kept until the judgment; 5 if he did not spare the ancient world, but (D)preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought (E)a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 if by (F)turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, (G)making them an example of (H)what is going to happen to the ungodly;[c] 7 and (I)if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked 8 (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, (J)he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); 9 then (K)the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials,[d] and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, 10 and especially (L)those who indulge[e] in the lust of defiling passion and (M)despise authority.
Bold and willful, they do not tremble (N)as they blaspheme the glorious ones,Read full chapter
