“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;”
King James Version (KJV)
2:12 Savage as brute beasts - Several of which in the present disordered state of the world, seem born to be taken and destroyed.
2Pe 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts. As if utterly irrational. Made to be taken and destroyed. The brute beasts were destined to the slaughter for man's uses. So these men blindly rush to destruction. Speak evil of the things that they understand not. How often the scoffer fulfills this description!
