9 the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of trial, and to keep the unjust to the day of judgment to be punished; 10 and specially those who walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise lordship. Bold are they, self-willed; they do not fear speaking injuriously of dignities: 11 when angels, who are greater in might and power, do not bring against them, before the Lord, an injurious charge.
