2 Peter 2:15-18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 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

 17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a storm, for whom black darkness is reserved.

 18 For speaking great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh and much wantonness, those who were barely escaping from those who live in error. [To live in error is to live in sin.]

Jude 1:11-13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 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.

 12 These are spots in your feasts of love, where they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear. They are clouds without water, carried along by the wind; trees without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

 13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom the blackness of darkness is reserved forever.
