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

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

     7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 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:

     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.(KJV)

Hymn: WS 738:
Alleluia! Sing to Jesus

1. Alleluia! sing to Jesus!  
His the scepter, His the throne. 
Alleluia! His the triumph,  
His the victory alone. 
Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion  
thunder like a mighty flood. 
Jesus out of every nation  
has redeemed us by His blood. 

2. Alleluia! bread of angels,  
Thou on earth our food, our stay; 
Alleluia! here the sinful  
flee to Thee from day to day: 
Intercessor, Friend of sinners,  
Earth’s Redeemer, plead for me, 
Where the songs of all the sinless  
sweep across the crystal sea. 

3. Alleluia! not as orphans  
are we left in sorrow now; 
Alleluia! He is near us,  
faith believes, nor questions how; 
Though the cloud from sight received Him  
when the forty days were o’er 
Shall our hearts forget His promise,  
“I am with you evermore”?
