2 Peter 2:14-16

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 14 Having eyes full of adultery [lusts and love of the world], who cannot cease from sin, beguiling unstable souls. They have exercised their heart in covetous practices, they are cursed children, [The false prophets and false teachers did not have the patience to bear the cross and crucify their lusts and affections before preaching and teaching, and so they are filthy dreamers: filthy in mind and spirit and dreaming that they are saved, righteous, and capable of preaching and teaching. Fom the Word of the Lord within: "They are filthy dreamers;" they are filthy because their hearts are defiled with all manner of sins that they still commit with disregard to the Lord's many warnings and requirements, and they are dreaming that they are righteous. ]

 15 Who have forsaken the right way and have gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness,

 16 Who was rebuked for his iniquity by the dumb ass speaking with a man's voice forbidding the madness of the prophet.3

Jude 1:11

 11 Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and have run greedily after the error of Balaam for pay, and have perished in the gainsaying [rebellion] of Korah.
