2 Peter 2:19
“While they promise them libertie, they themselues are the seruants of corruption: for of whom a man is ouercome, of the same is he brought in bondage.”
King James Version (KJV)
2 Peter 2:19
16. But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumbe asse speaking with mais voice, forbade the madnesse of the Prophet. 17. These are welles without water, cloudes that are caried with a tempest, to whom the mist of darkenesse is reserued for euer. 18. For when they speake great svelling words of vanitie, they alure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonnesse, those that were cleane escaped from them who liue in errour. 19. While they promise them libertie, they themselues are the seruants of corruption: for of whom a man is ouercome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20. For if after they haue escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Sauiour Iesus Christ, they are againe intangled therein, and ouercome, the latter end is worse with them then the beginning. 21. For it had bin better for them not to haue knowen the way of righteousnesse, then after they haue knowen it, to turne from the holy commandement deliuered vnto them. 22. But it is happened vnto them according to the true prouerbe: The dog is turned to his own vomit againe, and the sowe that was washed, to her wallowing in the mire.
