Jude 1:19 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Who separate themselves - From the true Church, which they leave from an affectation of superior wisdom.

Sensual - Ψυχικοι· Animal - living as brute beasts, guided simply by their own lusts and passions, their Bible being the manifold devices and covetousness of their own hearts; for they have not the Spirit - they are not spiritually minded; and have no Holy Ghost, no inspiration from God.
