|<< Jude 1 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Yehuda, the Servant of Yeshua The Messiah and the brother of Yaqob, to the Gentiles called by God The Father, beloved ones, and kept by Yeshua The Messiah.
Mercy, peace and love be multiplied to you.
3Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write to you about our common life, it was necessary for me to write to you, as I am to persuade you to compete for the faith, which was once delivered to The Holy Ones.
4For men have obtained entrance, who from the beginning were written with this guilty verdict: “Evil men who pervert the grace of our God into an abomination and deny him who is the only Lord God and our Lord Yeshua The Messiah.”
5I wish to remind you, as you all know, that God, when once he had brought the people out from Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
6And those Angels who kept not their Principality, but abandoned their own way of life, he has kept to the great Day of Judgment in unseen chains under darkness,
7Just as Sadom and Amorah and their surrounding cities, in which, like these, they committed fornication and went after other flesh, are subject to demonstrations of eternal fire while they are condemned to judgment.
8In this likeness, these also lust in their dreams, who defile the flesh, reject Lordship and slander The Glory.
9But Michael the Archangel, who, when he was speaking with The Devil about the body of Moses, did not speak to bring a slanderous judgment against him, but he said, “THE LORD JEHOVAH will rebuke you.”
10But these things which they do not know, they slander, and those things which they desire naturally, like dumb animals, in them they are corrupted.
11Woe to them who have gone in the way of Cain, and have run riot after the deception of Balaam for wages, and they have perished in the rebellion of Korah.
12These are those who are defiled in their feasts and run riot while feeding themselves without fear, clouds without rain that wander with the wind; trees, whose fruit has died, who are without fruit, which have died twice and they have pulled up from their roots,
13Strong surges of the sea that show their shame by their froth. These are wandering stars, for whom the gloom of darkness is reserved for eternity.
14But Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied to these as he said, “Behold, THE LORD JEHOVAH comes with myriads of his Holy Ones,
15To do judgment on all and to reprove all souls, because of all the works of those who did wickedness, and because of all of the hard words which evil sinners have spoken.”
16These are those who murmur and complain in every matter while they walk according to their desires, their mouth speaks guiltiness, and they flatter persons for profit.
17But you, beloved, remember those words that were spoken before by the Apostles of our Lord Yeshua The Messiah,
18Who said to you, “In the last time there shall be those who mock and by their own desires go after wickedness.”
19These are those who distinguish the animal nature, because they do not have The Spirit.
20But you beloved, be encouraged again in your holy faith, praying in The Holy Spirit,
21But let us keep ourselves in the love of God as we look for the mercy of our Lord Yeshua The Messiah unto our eternal life.
22And snatch some of them who are from the fire.
23And when they repent, show pity upon them with respect, while you hate also the tunic that is defiled by the flesh.
24But to him who can keep us without offense and without defilement and present us without a flaw
25Before his glory in joy ( He alone is God our Savior by Yeshua The Messiah our Lord ); to him is the praise, dominion, honor and majesty, even now and unto all ages. Amen.
