3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the [a]saints.4 For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand [b]marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
5 Now I desire to remind you, though you know all things once for all, that [c]the Lord, after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, [d]subsequently destroyed those who did not believe.6 And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day,7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after [e]strange flesh, are exhibited as an [f]example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.
