Bible Passage

Jude 1–4 (Listen)

Greeting

1:1 Jude, a servant1 of Jesus Christ and brother of James,

To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for2 Jesus Christ:

May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.

Judgment on False Teachers

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
