    These are murmurers,
    full of complaints, walking according to their own desires, and their mouth speaketh proud things, admiring persons for gain's sake.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    These are murmurers, complainers,
    walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:16

    Estos son murmuradores, querellosos, andando segn sus deseos; y su boca habla cosas soberbias, teniendo en admiracin las personas por causa del provecho.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jude 1:16

    Verse 16. These are murmurers] Grudging and grumbling at all
    men, and at all things; complainers, memyimoiroi, complainers of their fate or destiny - finding fault with God and all his providential dispensations, making and governing worlds in their own way; persons whom neither God nor man can please.

    Walking after their own lusts] Taking their wild, disorderly, and impure passions for the rule of their conduct, and not the writings of the prophets and apostles.

    Great swelling words] uperogka. See the explanation of this term in 2 Pet. ii. 18.

    Having men's persons in admiration] Time-servers and flatterers; persons who pretend to be astonished at the greatness, goodness, sagacity, learning, wisdom; &c., of rich and great men, hoping thereby to acquire money, influence, power, friends, and the like.

    Because of advantage.] wfeleiav carin? For the sake of lucre. All the flatterers of the rich are of this kind; and especially those who profess to be ministers of the Gospel, and who, for the sake of a more advantageous settlement or living, will soothe the rich even in their sins. With such persons a rich man is every thing; and if he have but a grain of grace, his piety is extolled to the skies! I have known several ministers of this character, and wish them all to read the sixteenth verse of Jude.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. These are murmurers , etc.] That is, at others; secretly, inwardly, in a muttering way, grunting out their murmurs like swine; to which, for their filthiness and apostasy, false teachers may be filly compared: and their murmurs might be both against God and men; against God, against the being of God, denying, or at least wishing there was no God, and uneasy because there is one; against the perfections of God, particularly his sovereignty over all, his special goodness to some, his wisdom, justice, truth, and faithfulness; against his purposes and decrees, both with respect to things temporal, spiritual, and eternal; against the providence of God and his government of the world, and the unequal distribution of things in it; and especially against the doctrines of free grace, and the ordinances of the Gospel: and not only are they murmurers against God, and all divine things and persons, but also against men; particularly against civil magistrates, who restrain them, and are a terror to them; and against the ministers of the Gospel, whose gifts and usefulness they envy; and indeed against all men, their neighbours, and what they enjoy, and at everything that goes besides themselves: it follows, complainers ; some join the above character and this together, and read, as the Vulgate Latin version, complaining murmurers; others, as the Syriac version, place not only a comma, but a copulative between them; and as the former may design secret and inward murmuring, this may intend outward complaining in words; not of their own sins and corruptions, nor of the sins of others, with any concern for the honour of religion; or of the decay of powerful godliness in themselves or others; or of the failure of the Gospel, and the decrease of the interest of Christ; but either of God, that he has not made them equal to others in the good things of life, as the Arabic version renders it, complaining of their own lots; or that he lays so much affliction upon them more than on others; or of men, that their salaries are not sufficient, and that they are not enough respected according to their merit; and indeed, as the Syriac version reads, they complain of everything, and are never satisfied and easy: walking after their own lusts ; which are carnal and worldly, (see Gill on 2 Peter 3:3); and their mouth speaketh great swelling [words] ; both against God and men; and this may point at their boast of knowledge, their great ostentation of learning, their vain and empty doctrines, their high flights, their rhetorical style, and bombast language: having men's persons in admiration because of advantage ; crying up men of their own stamp for the advantage of the party; and giving flattering titles to men of wealth and riches, for the sake of their money: so the Ethiopic version, they studied to please persons, to make gain of them; they were respecters of persons; so the phrase is used by the Septuagint in ( Deuteronomy 10:17 28:50), and in ( Job 22:8) ( Job 32:22 34:19), and in ( Proverbs 18:5) and in ( Isaiah 9:15).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 8-16 - False
    teachers are dreamers; they greatly defile and grievously woun the soul. These teachers are of a disturbed mind and a seditiou spirit; forgetting that the powers that be, are ordained of God, R 13:1. As to the contest about the body of Moses, it appears that Sata wished to make the place of his burial known to the Israelites, i order to tempt them to worship him, but he was prevented, and vente his rage in desperate blasphemy. This should remind all who disput never to bring railing charges. Also learn hence, that we ought to defend those whom God owns. It is hard, if not impossible, to find an enemies to the Christian religion, who did not, and do not, live in open or secret contradiction to the principles of natural religion Such are here compared to brute beasts, though they often boast of themselves as the wisest of mankind. They corrupt themselves in the things most open and plain. The fault lies, not in their understandings, but in their depraved wills, and their disordere appetites and affections. It is a great reproach, though unjust to religion, when those who profess it are opposed to it in heart an life. The Lord will remedy this in his time and way; not in men's blin way of plucking up the wheat with the tares. It is sad when men begi in the Spirit, and end in the flesh. Twice dead; they had been onc dead in their natural, fallen state; but now they are dead again by the evident proofs of their hypocrisy. Dead trees, why cumber they the ground! Away with them to the fire. Raging waves are a terror to sailing passengers; but when they get into port, the noise and terro are ended. False teachers are to expect the worst punishments in thi world and in that to come. They glare like meteors, or falling stars and then sink into the blackness of darkness for ever. We have n mention of the prophecy of Enoch in any other part or place of Scripture; yet one plain text of Scripture, proves any point we are to believe. We find from this, that Christ's coming to judge wa prophesied of, as early as the times before the flood. The Lord cometh what a glorious time will that be! Notice how often the word "ungodly is repeated. Many now do not at all refer to the terms godly, or ungodly, unless it be to mock at even the words; but it is not so in the language taught us by the Holy Ghost. Hard speeches of one another especially if ill-grounded, will certainly come into account at the da of judgment. These evil men and seducers are angry at every thing tha happens, and never pleased with their own state and condition. Their will and their fancy, are their only rule and law. Those who pleas their sinful appetites, are most prone to yield to ungovernabl passions. The men of God, from the beginning of the world, have declared the doom denounced on them. Such let us avoid. We are to follow men only as they follow Christ. (Jud 1:17-23)

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    16. Murmurers (goggustai). Only here in New Testament. Doubtless, originally, with some adaptation of
    sound to sense, gongustai. It is used of the cooling of doves.

    Complainers (memyimoiroi). From memfomai, to find fault with, and moira, a part or lot. Lit., blamers of their lot.

    Great swelling words. See on 2 Pet. ii. 18.

    Having men's persons in admiration (qaumazontev proswpa). The Rev., shewing respect of persons, is neater, but the A.V. more literal: admiring the countenances. Compare Gen. xix. 21, Sept., "I have accepted thee:" lit., have admired thy face.

    Because of advantage. See 2 Pet. ii. 3, 14.

    Beloved. Compare ver. 3.
