Bible commentary

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.

    Dear Fred; you may find it interesting to do a word study about the number 666. Many people have strange "guessings" about what it means and how we are to recognize it; but with a Greek Interlinear New Testament and a Strong's Concordance you can look up the archaic and root meanings of the "numbers" and find that they imply a casting off of all restraint and going over all boundaries. Gen. 11:5-6
