Letter of Jude

1 Jude, the ambightman of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are made holy by God the Father, and kept in Jesus Christ, and called:

2 Mildness unto you, and frith, and love, be made many.

3 Beloved, when I gave all geornfulness to write unto you of the common Godly health, it was needful for me to write unto you, and forthcall you that ye should earnestly fight for the faith which was once given unto the holy folk.

4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old called to this doom, ungodly men, turning the bliss of our God into gallship, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

5 I will therefore put you in gemining, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the folk out of the land of Ægypte, afterward made forlorn them that believed not.

6 And the errand-ghosts which kept not their first earth, but left their own home, he hath kept in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the towns about them in like manner, giving themselves over to cifesdom, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an bisening, suffering the [wreckness](/e "vengeance) of everlasting fire.

8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers befoul the flesh, hate lordship, and speak evil of wonderfulnessa.

9 Yet Michael the high errand-ghost, when fighting with the devil he hilded about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing acweething, but said, The Lord chide thee.

10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know elkindly, as brute wildthings, in those things they rot themselves.

11 Sadness unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the mistakes of Balaam for earning, and died in the gainsaying of Core.

12 These are spots in your bearships of Godly love, when they eat with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose ovest withereth, without ovest, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

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

14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, foresaw of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his holy folk,

15 To bring evenness upon all, and to tell all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly done, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

16 These are whisperers, becorrers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's bodies in lust because of gain.

17 But, beloved, bethink ye the words which were spoken before of the holy messengers of our Lord Jesus Christ;

18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

19 These be they who cut themselves off, wynful, having not the Ghost.

20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,

21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mildness of our Lord Jesus Christ unto everlasting life.

22 And of some have mildness, making a toberrenness:

23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the cloth spotted by the flesh.

24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to show you faultless before the anwerdness of his andetness with great mirth,

25 To the only wise God our Redder, be adnetness and kingliness, lorship and might, both now and ever. Sobeit.
