2Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable.heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them.(1, 2, 3).and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2Peter 2:2 And many follow their pernicious.(means 'destructive').ways; by reason of whom the way of truth is evil spoken of.(Acts 16:19-24; 24:5).

2Peter 2:3 And through covetousness they with feigned words make merchandise of you; whose judgment now of a long time lingers not and their damnation.lingers not.

2Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness.(able only to hurt to the length of their chain, which distance you keep out of by staying within the light), to be reserved unto judgment;

2Peter 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

Means here that Noah was one of the eight persons on the ark, worthy enough to escape the flood:.1Peter 3:20.

2Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample.(example).unto those that after should live ungodly.(living ungodly is the automatic way all us humans have lived without the knowledge of God in our hearts);

The example here showing what the Creator thinks of those living with a low consciousness as compared to the higher consciousness way of thinking.

2Peter 2:7,8 And delivered just.(word 'just', here means 'righteous').Lot, vexed.(original is 'tired', exhausted'; it drained him).with the filthy conversation.(old English word for 'conduct').of the wicked. For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds.

2Peter 2:9 The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished.

2Peter 2:9 The Lord knows how to deliver the godly.(those who want to do good).out of temptations and to reserve the unjust.(those who do selfishness at any cost to others).unto the day of judgment to be punished.(original for word 'punishment' is 'to lop or prune, as trees and wings'; 'to curb', 'check', 'restrain'; 'to chastise', 'correct', 'punish' {God doesn't punish per se; it's the automatic laws the Creator set up at the time the universe was formed that can wreak.havoc in a person's life, one law being, we reap what we have sown}; the word 'punish' does not mean to destroy {Proverbs 3:12; Hebrews 12:6} or punish in hell; when is this day of judgment for retribution?).

2Peter 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government.(original for 'government' is 'dominion'; the same word is also translated 'Lord' in the New Testament, but means here, they resent what they regard as encroaching towards their self centered concerns, their 'lord', and regard ideas toward helping others as threats to self-governance, where any impressions on their minds outside of selfish purposes are disregarded; they are characterized by being dogmatically impatient of contradiction). Presumptuous are they, self willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.(original is 'opinions', in this case, ideas of others not in line with their mind's limitations).

2Peter 2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

2Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts.(from birth, they just got worse, why?), made to be taken.(made to or made into that which is able to be taken by the dark side, how?; it's not God that causes them problems, it's actions taken from their own minds).and destroyed.(Psalms 49:20), speak evil of the things.(things like what?).that they understand not.(original for 'understand not' is 'ignorant of'; they were closed-minded to learning truths of life that are readily.evident).and shall utterly perish.(original for 'and shall utterly perish' is 'be destroyed').in their own corruption.(?);

2Peter 2:13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;

2Peter 2:14 Having eyes full of adultery and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls. An heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children;

2Peter 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam.(Numbers 24:25).the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness.(loved getting an unfair advantage over others);

2Peter 2:16 But was rebuked for his iniquity, the dumb ass speaking with man's voice.(Numbers 22:1-4).forbad the madness of the prophet.

2Peter 2:17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

2Peter 2:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh.(an appeal to selfishness to suck you into the dark side), through much wantonness.(the 'exciting' prospect of the things of the dark side; why silly women are attracted to the 'fringy' guys), those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.

2Peter 2:19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption. For of whom.(original 'what', 'which', 'whom', 'that', 'whereof').a man is overcome.(whatever a man is overcome by), of the same is he brought in bondage.

2Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions.(original 'anything which causes a person to be dyed with another color, speaking of one's character).of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Emmanuel the Christ, they are again entangled therein and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

2Peter 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment.(the 'holy commandment' is love; 'holy' is 'wholeness', the oneness of love:.Mark 12:29-31; 2Peter 3:14).delivered unto them.

Why would it have been better? Better conscience.wise:.1Timothy 4:2 "...their conscience seared with a hot iron."

2Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb.(Proverbs 26:11), The dog is turned to his own vomit again and the sow that was washed, to her wallowing in the mire.(muddy ground)..(important to decide not to lose what has been gained; one needs to be on the qui vive)
