Even as Sodom and Gomorrha and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication and going after strange flesh, were set forth for an example, having received the judgment of eternal fire. In the same manner these deceived dreamers, defile their flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of higher powers.

But these speak evil of those things which they do not know; but what they know by nature as animals without reason, in those things they corrupt themselves.

These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own desires; and their mouth speaks arrogant things, admiring persons to take advantage.
