Bible: 2 Peter 2:9-12

2:9 – if so, 1  then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from their trials, 2  and to reserve the unrighteous for punishment 3  at the day of judgment, 2:10 especially those who indulge their fleshly desires 4  and who despise authority.

Brazen and insolent, 5  they are not afraid to insult 6  the glorious ones, 7  2:11 yet even 8  angels, who are much more powerful, 9  do not bring a slanderous 10  judgment against them before the Lord. 11  2:12 But 12  these men, 13  like irrational animals – creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed 14 do not understand whom 15  they are insulting, and consequently 16  in their destruction they will be destroyed, 17
