    But these
    men, as irrational beasts, naturally tending to the snare and to destruction, blaspheming those things which they know not, shall perish in their corruption,

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:12

    Mas stos, diciendo mal de las cosas que no entienden, (como bestias brutas, que naturalmente son hechas para presa y destruccin), perecern en su perdicin,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 2:12

    Verse 12. But these, as
    natural brute beasts] wv aloga zwa fusika? As those natural animals void of reason, following only the gross instinct of nature, being governed neither by reason nor religion.

    Made to be taken and destroyed] Intended to be taken with nets and gins, and then destroyed, because of their fierce and destructive nature; so these false teachers and insurgents must be treated; first incarcerated, and then brought to judgment, that they may have the reward of their doings. And thus, by blaspheming what they do not understand, they at last perish in their own corruption; i.e. their corrupt doctrines and vicious practices.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. But these, as natural brute beasts , etc.] So far are these men from acting like the angels, that they are sunk below their own species, and are like beasts, and become brutish in their knowledge and behaviour; are like the horse and the mule, without understanding, act as if they were without reason; yea, are more stupid and senseless than the ox, or the ass, which know their owner, and their crib; and even in those things which they might, and do know by the light of nature, they corrupt themselves; and being given up to judicial blindness, and a reprobate mind, call good evil, and evil good, and do things that are not convenient, and which even brute beasts do not; and like as they are guided by an instinct in nature, to do what they do, so these men are led and influenced by the force and power of corrupt nature in them, to commit all manner of wickedness: and like them are made to be taken and destroyed ; or, as it may be rendered, to take and destroy; as beasts and birds of prey, such as lions, tigers, wolves, bears, vultures, hawks, etc. to which abusers of themselves with mankind, ravishers of women, extortioners, oppressors, thieves, robbers, and plunderers of men's properties, may be compared: or to be taken and destroyed; that is, they are made or appointed to be taken in the net and snare of Satan, are vessels of wrath fitted for destruction, and are afore ordained to condemnation and ruin: and this being their case, they speak evil of the things they understand not ; either of angels, of whose nature, office, and dignity, they are ignorant; and blaspheme them, by either ascribing too much to them, as the creation of the world, and divine worship, as were by some ancient heretics; or by speaking such things of them as were below them, and unworthy of them; or of civil magistrates, not knowing the nature and end of magistracy and civil government, and therefore spoke evil of them, when they ought to pray, and be thankful for them, and live peaceable and quiet lives under them; or of the ministers of the word, whose usefulness for the conversion of sinners and edification of saints were not known, at least not acknowledged by these men; hence they were traduced, and went through ill report among them, being as unknown by them; or of the Scriptures of truth, which heretical men do not truly know and understand, but wrest to their own destruction, or deny; and of the Gospel and the mysteries of it, which are things not seen, known, and understood by carnal men, and therefore are blasphemed, reviled, and reproached by them: and shall utterly perish in their own corruption : of which they are servants, ( 2 Peter 2:19), in their moral corruption, in their filthy and unnatural lusts, which are the cause of their everlasting perdition and destruction, to which they are righteously appointed of God.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-16 - Impure seducers and their abandoned followers, give themselves up to their own fleshly minds. Refusing to bring every thought to the obedience of
    Christ, they act against God's righteous precepts. The walk after the flesh, they go on in sinful courses, and increase to greater degrees of impurity and wickedness. They also despise thos whom God has set in authority over them, and requires them to honour Outward temporal good things are the wages sinners expect and promis themselves. And none have more cause to tremble, than those who ar bold to gratify their sinful lusts, by presuming on the Divine grac and mercy. Many such there have been, and are, who speak lightly of the restraints of God's law, and deem themselves freed from obligations to obey it. Let Christians stand at a distance from such.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    12. As
    natural brute beasts made to be taken and destroyed. This massing of epithets is characteristic of Peter. Natural (fusika), Rev., mere animals, should be construed with made, or as Rev., born (gegennhmena). Brute (aloga), lit., unreasoning or irrational. Rev., without reason. Compare Acts xxv. 27. Beasts (zwa). Lit., living creatures, from zaw, to live. More general and inclusive than beasts, since it denotes strictly all creatures that live, including man. Plato even applies it to God himself. Hence Rev., properly, creatures. To be taken and destroyed (eijv alwsin kai, fqoran). Lit., for capture and destruction. Destruction twice in this verse, and with a cognate verb. Render the whole, as Rev., But these, as creatures without reason, born mere animals to be taken and destroyed.

    Speak evil (blasfemountev). Participle. Rev., rightly, railing. Compare vv. 10, 11.

    And shall utterly perish in their own corruption (en th fqora autwn kai fqarhsontai). There is a play upon the words, which the Rev. reproduces by rendering, "shall in their destroying surely be destroyed." The and, which in the A.V. connects this and the preceding sentence, is rather to be taken with shall be destroyed, as emphasizing it, and should be rendered, as Rev., surely, or as others, even or also. Compare on the whole verse Jude 10.
