12 These are the ones who are [a]hidden reefs (A)in your love feasts when they feast with you (B)without fear, like shepherds caring only for themselves; (C)clouds without water, (D)carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, [b]doubly dead, (E)uprooted; 13 (F)wild waves of the sea, churning up (G)their own shameful deeds like dirty foam; wandering stars, (H)for whom the [c]gloom of darkness has been reserved forever.

14 It was also about these people that (I)Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “(J)Behold, the Lord has come with [d]many thousands of His holy ones, 15 (K)to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which (L)ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” 16 These are (M)grumblers, finding fault, (N)following after their own lusts; [e]they speak (O)arrogantly, flattering people (P)for the sake of gaining an advantage.
