猶大書

我是耶穌基督的奴僕、雅各的兄弟猶大,現在寫信給蒙父上帝呼召、眷愛、被耶穌基督看顧的人。

願上帝豐豐富富地賜給你們憐憫、平安和慈愛!

捍衛真道

親愛的弟兄姊妹,我一直迫切地想寫信跟你們談談我們所共享的救恩,但現在我覺得有必要寫信勸勉你們竭力護衛一次就完整地交給聖徒的真道。 因為有些不敬虔的人偷偷地混進你們中間,以上帝的恩典作藉口,放縱情慾,否認獨一的主宰——我們的主耶穌基督。聖經上早已記載,這樣的人必受到審判。

前車之鑑

以下的事情,你們雖然都知道,但我還要再提醒你們:從前上帝[a]把祂的子民從埃及救出來,後來把其中不信的人滅絕了。 至於不守本分、擅離崗位的天使,上帝也用鎖鏈將他們永遠囚禁在幽暗裡,等候最後審判的大日子到來。 此外,所多瑪、蛾摩拉及其附近城鎮的人同樣因為荒淫無度、沉溺於變態的情慾而遭到永火的刑罰。這些事都成為我們的警戒。

假教師的惡行

同樣,這些作夢的人玷污自己的身體,不服權柄,褻瀆有尊榮的。 當天使長米迦勒為摩西的屍體跟魔鬼爭辯的時候,尚且不敢用毀謗的話譴責牠,只說:「願主責罰你!」 10 這些人卻毀謗自己不明白的事,像沒有理性的野獸一樣憑本能行事,結果自取滅亡。 11 他們大禍臨頭了!他們步了該隱的後塵,為謀利而重蹈巴蘭的謬誤,又像可拉一樣因叛逆而滅亡。 12 這些人在你們的愛宴中是敗類[b]。他們肆無忌憚地吃喝,是只顧餵養自己的牧人;是沒有雨的雲,隨風飄蕩;是深秋不結果子的樹,被連根拔起,徹底枯死。 13 他們是海中的狂濤,翻動著自己可恥的泡沫,是流蕩的星星,有幽幽黑暗永遠留給他們。

14 亞當的第七代子孫以諾曾經針對這些人說預言:「看啊!主率領祂千萬的聖者一同降臨, 15 要審判所有的人,按不虔不敬的罪人所行的惡事和他們褻瀆上帝的話定他們的罪。」 16 這些人滿腹牢騷,怨天尤人,放縱自己的邪情私慾。他們口出狂言,為了謀利而阿諛奉承他人。

牢記警告

17 親愛的弟兄姊妹,要謹記主耶穌基督的使徒從前給你們的警告。 18 他們曾對你們說:「末世的時候,必定有不敬虔、好譏笑的人放縱自己的邪情私慾。」 19 這些人製造分裂,血氣用事,心中沒有聖靈。

20 親愛的弟兄姊妹,你們要在至聖的真道上造就自己,在聖靈的引導下禱告, 21 常在上帝的愛中,等候我們主耶穌基督施憐憫賜給你們永生。

22 那些心存疑惑的人,你們要憐憫他們; 23 有些人,你們要將他們從火中搶救出來;還有些人,你們要懷著畏懼的心憐憫他們,甚至要厭惡被他們的邪情私慾玷污的衣服。

祝頌

24 願榮耀歸給我們的救主——獨一的上帝!祂能保守你們不失足犯罪,使你們無瑕無疵、歡歡喜喜地站在祂的榮耀面前。 25 願榮耀、威嚴、能力和權柄藉著我們的主耶穌基督都歸給祂,從萬世以前直到現今,一直到永永遠遠。阿們!

Jude

The Warnings of History to the Ungodly

[a]Jude, a bond-servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of [b]James,

To those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ: May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you.

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the [c]saints. For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand [d]marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Now I desire to remind you, though you know all things once for all, that [e]the Lord, after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, [f]subsequently destroyed those who did not believe. And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after [g]strange flesh, are exhibited as an [h]example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

Yet in the same way these men, also by dreaming, defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile [i]angelic majesties. But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” 10 But these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are [j]destroyed. 11 Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay [k]they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah. 12 These are the men who are [l]hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, [m]doubly dead, uprooted; 13 wild waves of the sea, casting up their own [n]shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the [o]black darkness has been reserved forever.

14 It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with [p]many thousands of His holy ones, 15 to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” 16 These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; [q]they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage.

Keep Yourselves in the Love of God

17 But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, 18 that they were saying to you, “In the last time there will be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts.” 19 These are the ones who cause divisions, [r]worldly-minded, [s]devoid of the Spirit. 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life. 22 And have mercy on some, who are doubting; 23 save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment polluted by the flesh.

24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, 25 to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and [t]forever. Amen.
