Bible: 2 Pet 2:12-17

2:12 But 1  these men, 2  like irrational animals – creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed 3 do not understand whom 4  they are insulting, and consequently 5  in their destruction they will be destroyed, 6  2:13 suffering harm as the wages for their harmful ways. 7  By considering it a pleasure to carouse in broad daylight, 8  they are stains and blemishes, indulging 9  in their deceitful pleasures when they feast together with you. 2:14 Their eyes, 10  full of adultery, 11  never stop sinning; 12  they entice 13  unstable people. 14  They have trained their hearts for greed, these cursed children! 15  2:15 By forsaking the right path they have gone astray, because they followed the way of Balaam son of Bosor, 16  who loved the wages of unrighteousness, 17  2:16 yet was rebuked 18  for his own transgression (a dumb donkey, 19  speaking with a human voice, 20  restrained the prophet’s madness). 21 

2:17 These men 22  are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm, for whom the utter depths of darkness 23  have been reserved.
