2 Peter 2:1-22
nasb
But a false prophets also arose among the people,
just as there will also be b false teachers c among you,
comparison
who will d secretly introduce e destructive heresies ,
even f denying the g Master
who h bought them,
ideaexplanation
generalspecific
bringing swift destruction upon themselves .
actionresult
Many will follow their a sensuality ,
and because of them b the way of the truth will be c maligned ;
and in their a greed
they will b exploit you
with c false words;
actionmanner
series
progression
d their judgment from long ago is not idle,
and their destruction is not asleep.
concessive
For a if God did not spare angels when they sinned,
but cast them into hell
and b committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment;
negativepositive
and did not spare a the ancient world,
but preserved b Noah,
a 1 preacher of righteousness,
with seven others,
when He brought a c flood upon the world of the ungodly;
temporal
and if He a condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction
by reducing them to ashes,
having made them an b example to those who would c live ungodly lives thereafter;
actionpurpose
and if He a rescued righteous Lot,
oppressed by the b sensual conduct of c unprincipled men
(for by what he saw and heard that a righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds),
a then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from 1 temptation,
and to keep the unrighteous under punishment
for the b day of judgment,
and especially those who 1 a indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires
and b despise authority.
Daring,
c self-willed,
they do not tremble when they b revile angelic 2 majesties,
a whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.
situationresponse
But a these ,
like unreasoning animals ,
b born as creatures of instinct to be captured and killed,
reviling where they have no knowledge,
will in 1 the destruction of those creatures
also be destroyed ,
suffering wrong
as a the wages of doing wrong.
Complete sentence

They count it a pleasure to b revel in the c daytime .
They are stains and blemishes, b reveling in their 1 deceptions ,
as they d carouse with you ,
having eyes full of adultery that never cease from sin,
a enticing b unstable souls,
having a heart trained in c greed,
d accursed children ;
forsaking a the right way,
they have gone astray ,
having followed b the way of Balaam,
the son of Beor,
who l oved c the wages of unrighteousness ;
but he received a rebuke for his own transgression,
a for a mute donkey, speaking with a voice of a man, restrained the madness of the prophet.
These are a springs without water
and mists driven by a storm,
b for whom the 1 black darkness has been reserved.
For speaking out a arrogant words of b vanity
they c entice
by fleshly desires ,
by d sensuality ,
those who barely e escape from the ones who live in error,
Complete Sentence
promising them freedom
while they themselves are slaves of corruption ;
for a by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved.
For if,
after they have a escaped the defilements of the world
by b the knowledge of the c Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
they are again d entangled in them and are overcome,
Complete Phrase
e the last state has become worse for them than the first.
conditional
a For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness,
than having known it,
to turn away from b the holy commandment c handed on to them.
alternative
1 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, “ a A dog returns to its own vomit ,” and, “A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire.”
