Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:8


1:8 In like manner these dreamers - Sleeping and dreaming all their lives. Despise authority - Those that are invested with it by Christ, and made by him the overseers of his flock. Rail at dignities - The apostle does not seem to speak of worldly dignities. These they had in admiration for the sake of gain, #Jude 1:16|; but those holy men, who for the purity of their lives, the soundness of their doctrine, and the greatness of their labours in the work of the ministry, were truly honourable before God and all good men; and who were grossly vilified by those who turned the grace of God into lasciviousness. Probably they were the impure followers of Simon Magus, the same with the Gnostics and Nicolaitans, #Rev 2:15|. #2Pet 2:10|.

    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.
