3(G)Beloved, agapetos – dear ones while I was making every effort spoude spoo-day' – speed, eager, haste to write you about our (H)common salvation, Jude set out to write a simple evangelical message.

This verse is based off a work called The Assumption of Moses.

10But (AG)these men revile the things which they do not understand; and (AH)the things which they know by instinct, (AI)like unreasoning animals, (2 Pet 2:4) by these things they are destroyed. 11Woe to them! For they have gone (AJ)the way of Cain, (Gen 4:1-16) Abe’s offering was pleasing, Cain’s was not and Cain murdered his brother and for pay they have rushed headlong into (AK)the error of Balaam,(Num22-24) Balaam was contracted to curse God’s people in exchange for money and (AL)perished in the rebellion of Korah. (Numbers 16:1-3) 1 Korah son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and certain Reubenites—Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab, and On son of Peleth—became insolent [a] 2 and rose up against Moses. With them were 250 Israelite men, well-known community leaders who had been appointed members of the council. 3 They came as a group to oppose Moses and Aaron and said to them, "You have gone too far! The whole community is holy, every one of them, and the LORD is with them. Why then do you set yourselves above the LORD's assembly?"
