      passage: 2Peter 2:9-2:22

      Chapter 2

      The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to
      reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly
      them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise
      government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to
      speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power
      and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
      But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak
      evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in
      their own corruption; And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness,
      as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are
      and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they
      feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease
      from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with
      covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way,
      and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who
      loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity:
      the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
      These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest;
      to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. For when they speak
      great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the
      flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them
      who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are
      the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same
      is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions
      of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
      they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse
      with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to
      have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to
      turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened
      unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own
      vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

      passage: Mark 13:14-13:23

      Chapter 13

      But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by
      Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth
      understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
      And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither
      enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: And let him that is
      in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment. But woe
      to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
      And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. For in those days
      shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation
      which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that
      the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for
      the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
      And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is
      there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise,
      and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even
      the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
