12 [a]But these as natural brute beasts, led with sensuality and [b]made to be taken, and destroyed, speak evil of those things which they know not, and shall perish through their own [c]corruption.
13 And shall receive the wages of unrighteousness, as they which count it pleasure daily to live deliciously. [d]Spots they are and blots, delighting themselves in their deceivings, [e]in feasting with you.
14 [f]Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease to sin, beguiling unstable souls, they have hearts exercised with covetousness, they are the children of curse:
2 Peter 2:12A lively painting out of the same persons, wherein they are compared to beasts, which are made to snare themselves to destruction, while they give themselves to fill their bellies: For there is no greater ignorance than is in these men, although they most impudently find fault with those things which they know not: and it shall come to pass that they shall destroy themselves as beasts, with those pleasures wherewith they are delighted, and dishonor and defile the company of the godly.
2 Peter 2:12Made to this end, to be a prey to others: so do these men willingly cast themselves into Satan’s snares.
2 Peter 2:12Their own wicked manners shall bring them to destruction.
2 Peter 2:13When as by being amongst the Christians in the holy banquets which the Church keepeth, they would seem by that means to be true members of the Church, yet they are indeed but blots on the Church.
2 Peter 2:14He condemneth those men, as showing even in their behavior and countenance an inmeasurable lust, as making merchandise of the souls of light persons, as men exercised in all the crafts of covetousness, to be short, as men that sell themselves for money to curse the Sons of God after Balaam’s example, whom the dumb beast reproved.
