2 Peter 2:7-19 LITV
(7) And He delivered righteous Lot, who had been oppressed by the behavior of the lawless in lustfulness. (8) For that righteous one living among them day after day, in seeing and in hearing, his righteous soul was tormented with their lawless deeds. (9) But the Lord knows to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to keep the unjust for a day of judgment, being punished, (10) and most of all those going after flesh in the lust of defilement, and despising rulership, darers, self-pleasing; they do not tremble at glories, speaking evil; (11) where angels being greater in strength and power do not bring against them a reproaching charge before the Lord. (12) But these as unreasoning natural beasts, having been born for capture and corruption, speaking evil in that of which they are ignorant, they shall utterly perish in their corruption, (13) being about to receive the wages of unrighteousness, having deemed indulgence in the day to be pleasure; spots and blemishes reveling in their deceits, feasting along with you, (14) having eyes full of an adulteress, and never ceasing from sin; alluring unsettled souls; having a heart being busied with covetousness; cursed children; (15) forsaking a straight path, they went astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness, (16) but had reproof of his own transgression, the dumb ass speaking in a man's voice held back the madness of the prophet. (17) These are springs without water, clouds being driven by tempest, for whom the blackness of darkness has been kept to the ages. (18) For speaking over-swollen words of vanity, by the lusts of the flesh, by unbridled lusts, they allure those indeed escaping, the ones walking in error, (19) promising to them freedom, though themselves being slaves of corruption; for by whom anyone has been overcome, even to this one he has been enslaved.

2 Peter 2:7-19 MKJV
(7) And He delivered righteous Lot, oppressed with the lustful behavior of the lawless. (8) For that righteous one living among them, in seeing and hearing, his righteous soul was tormented from day to day with their unlawful deeds. (9) The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to reserve the unjust for a day of judgment, to be punished, (10) and especially those who walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise dominion. They are darers, self-pleasing; not trembling at glories, speaking evil. (11) Where angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reproaching accusation against them before the Lord. (12) But these, as unreasoning natural brute animals having been born for capture and corruption, speak evil of the things that they do not understand. And they will utterly perish in their own corruption, (13) being about to receive the wages of unrighteousness, deeming indulgence as pleasure in the daytime, and reveling in spots and blemishes, feasting along with you in their deceits, (14) having eyes full of adultery and never ceasing from sin, alluring unstable souls, having a heart exercised with covetousness. They are cursed children (15) who have forsaken the right way and have gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness, (16) but had reproof of his lawbreaking, a dumb ass speaking in a man's voice, held back the madness of the prophet. (17) These are wells without water, clouds driven with a tempest, for whom the blackness of darkness is reserved forever. (18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh, by unbridled lust, the ones who were escaping from those who live in error; (19) promising them liberty, they themselves are the slaves of corruption. For by whom anyone has been overcome, even to this one he has been enslaved.

2 Peter 2:7-19 ALT
(7) and rescued righteous Lot, [who was] being distressed by the conduct in flagrant sexual immorality of the lawless [ones] (8) (for by seeing and hearing, that righteous [man] living among them, day by day [his] righteous soul was being tormented with [their] unlawful works); (9) [the] Lord knows [how] to be rescuing [the] godly out of temptation, but to be keeping [the] unrighteous being punished for [the] day of judgment, (10) and especially the ones going after [fig., indulging] the flesh in lust of uncleanness [or, unclean desires] and despising authority. [They are] presumptuous [or, reckless], self-willed [or, stubborn], not trembling when they speak evil of glories [fig., angelic beings], (11) whereas angels, being greater in strength and power, do not bring a slanderous judgment against them before [the] Lord. (12) But these, like irrational animals [guided by] natural instinct having been born for capture and destruction [fig., slaughter], speaking evil of [or, blaspheming in] [things] which they fail to understand, in their destruction they will be destroyed, (13) receiving back a reward of unrighteousness, counting [it as] a pleasure [to be engaging in] self-indulgence in the day; [they are] spots and blemishes [fig., a disgrace], openly indulging in their deceitful ways while they feast with youp, (14) having eyes full of adultery and unceasing in sin, enticing unstable souls, having a heart [fig., inner self] having been trained in covetous desire [or, greed], children of a curse [or, accursed children], (15) having forsaken [the] right way, they went astray [fig., were deceived], having followed in the way of Balaam the [son] of Bosor, who loved [the] wages of unrighteousness, (16) but he had a rebuke [for] his own iniquity: a mute donkey, having spoken in a person's voice, restrained the madness of the prophet. (17) These [people] are wells without water, clouds being driven by a storm, for whom the thick gloom of the darkness [fig., the gloomy hell] has been reserved into [the] age [fig., forever]. (18) For speaking swollen [fig., pompous] [words] of emptiness [or, nonsense], they entice with lusts of the flesh, with flagrant sexual immorality, the ones actually having escape from the ones conducting themselves in deception, (19) promising freedom to them, while they themselves are slaves of the corruption, for by whom anyone has been defeated, by this one also he has been enslaved.
