 Here we have the two great elements of evil that were introduced into the church by the instruments of Satan during the days of the apostles (Reflections on the Epistle of Jude: Part 3, The Faith We Have to Contend For)
 the denial of the rights of Christ as Lord and Master in His own house, (Reflections on the Epistle of Jude: Part 3, The Faith We Have to Contend For)
 ~and turning the grace of God into a principle of dissoluteness; as many have said, in excuse of the grossest guilt, "Are we not as God has made us?" Thus was the way cleared by the enemy for the full indulgence of the human will, it was set free from everything that restrained it. (Reflections on the Epistle of Jude: Part 3, The Faith We Have to Contend For)
 The " ungodly men that had crept in unobserved" the apostle declares were corrupting the profession of Christianity when he wrote, and that they, in their corresponding types, would be within the limits of its profession when the Lord comes to execute judgment on all the ungodly....But the nonrecognition of these claims of Christ, which are absolute, is the assertion of the right to pursue my own will. But this is the principle of direct and absolute apostasy. " The king shall do according to his will." (The Epistle of Jude)
 Here, therefore, we find a subtler and a deeper denial than the denial of the sovereign Master in Peter. That of course was very outside and very gross-"sects of perdition, and denying the sovereign Master that bought them." But here, in Jude, it is not only denying the sovereign Master of the world, of everything; but "our Lord," the one to whom we belong, the One to whose name we are baptized (Jude 4-5 by W. Kelly)
 These are the two elements of the evil which the instruments of Satan introduced, the rejection of the authority of Christ (not His name): and the abuse of grace, in order to indulge their own lusts. (JUDE by J.N. Darby)
 "unnoticed;" that is, their true character was not discerned when they were brought into the assembly (The Epistle of Jude 1-7)
 they had been foreseen by the omniscient eye of the Spirit of God, and the ground of their condemnation had been beforehand determined and proclaimed. (The Epistle of Jude 1-7)
 They seized upon grace as an excuse for sin; continued in sin that grace might abound (Rom. 6:1); and they rejected the authority of Christ, who was in fact their only Master. (Compare 2 Peter 2:1) They refused, in a word, the will of Christ, that they might be free to do their own will. (The Epistle of Jude 1-7)

e
The article is used here with the perfect participle. The word signifies to appoint by notice beforehand, to fix by proclamation. They are the ones who of old were so noticed and marked out.
f
Krima. not the act of condemnation, but the subject-matter on which they are condemned. see Note, 1 Cor. 11.29.
g
Or "denying the only Master and our Lord Jesus Christ." "Master" is despotes. see Acts 4.24; 2 Pet. 2.1.

For certain men have crept in unawares. They, who before of old were ordained to this sentence, ungodly men turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness and denying our only Master and Lord Jesus Christ1.

of old were ordained: the Americans [correctors of the RV] would have "written beforehand," and put "set forth" into the margin: a doubtful interpretation, as it assigns but a secondary place to the well-known technical force of προγ,. (Bible Treasury 15:144)
sentence: κρῖμα is rather the "charge" for which they were to be judged than "condemnation." Hence it came to mean the sentence or doom, as with us crime. (Bible Treasury 14:127)
sentence: [The American correctors of the RV] overlook also the old inaccuracy of taking κρῖμα as "condemnation" which is rather κατάκρ. In effect, it becomes this; but we ought always to translate correctly. (Bible Treasury 15:144)
Master ^: θεόν (God) though added (after "Master") by K L P 31 Syrr., is omitted by א A B C 13 Vulg. Copt. Sah. Arm. and AEthiopic Versions. (Lect. on Jude, p.46)
