Beware of False Prophets and Teachers - 2 Peter 2

2 Peter 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, and bring upon themselves swift  destruction. 

2 Peter 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious  ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil  spoken of. 

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

2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that  sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them  into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 

2 Peter 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; 

2 Peter 2:6 And turning the cities  of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with  an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that  after should live ungodly; 

2 Peter 2:7 And delivered just Lot,  vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 

2 Peter 2:8 (For  that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and  hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with  their unlawful deeds;) 

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

2 Peter 2:10 But  chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of  uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are  they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of  dignities. 

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

2 Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts,  made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that  they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own  corruption; 

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

2 Peter 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: 

2 Peter 2:15  Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray,  following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved  the wages of unrighteousness; 

2 Peter 2:16 But was rebuked for  his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad  the madness of the prophet. 

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

2 Peter 2:18 For when they  speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through  the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that  were clean escaped from them who live in error. 

2 Peter 2:19  While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the  servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of  the same is he brought in bondage. 

2 Peter 2:20 For if after they  have escaped the pollutions of the world through the  knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are  again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is  worse with them than the beginning. 

2 Peter 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 delivered unto them. 

2 Peter 2:22 But it is  happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog  is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was  washed to her wallowing in the mire. KJV
