Bible: 2 Peter 2:4-10

2:4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, 1  but threw them into hell 2  and locked them up 3  in chains 4  in utter darkness, 5  to be kept until the judgment, 2:5 and if he did not spare the ancient world, but did protect Noah, a herald of righteousness, along with seven others, 6  when God 7  brought a flood on an ungodly world, 8  2:6 and if he turned to ashes the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah when he condemned them to destruction, 9  having appointed 10  them to serve as an example 11  to future generations of the ungodly, 12  2:7 and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man in anguish over the debauched lifestyle of lawless 13  men, 14  2:8 (for while he lived among them day after day, that righteous man was tormented in his righteous soul 15  by the lawless deeds he saw and heard 16 ) 2:9 – if so, 17  then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from their trials, 18  and to reserve the unrighteous for punishment 19  at the day of judgment, 2:10 especially those who indulge their fleshly desires 20  and who despise authority.

Brazen and insolent, 21  they are not afraid to insult 22  the glorious ones, 23
