Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:13


1:13 Wandering stars - Literally, planets, which shine for a time, but have no light in themselves, and will be soon cast into utter darkness. Thus the apostle illustrates their desperate wickedness by comparisons drawn from the air, earth, sea, and heavens.


People's Bible Notes for Jude 1:13


Jude 1:13 Raging waves of the sea. Roaring and foaming like the sea waves. Wandering stars. Stars not fixed in their places, but shooting like meteors, and then going out. "Shooting stars" is not far from the idea. To whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. As the shooting stars go out in darkness, so these will pass into eternal darkness.

    It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
  • Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: Thus saith the Lord GOD: Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
