Ministry on This Verse

Gr. having.
 The meaning of the word is that they were just simply "natural" men. It is the same word that is translated "natural man" in 1 Corinthians 2:14, contrasted with the "spiritual man." So he adds here, "not having the Spirit." (Lectures on Jude 16-19 by W. Kelly)
 The Pharisees never separated themselves from Israel, but the very name of a Pharisee means "a separatist." They were separatists within Israel. These were separatists within the church and 'n both cases it was not going out, but it was making a party of pride and self-righteousness within. And who are they? Ungodly men; these were the men that were proud of themselves; those men who had these wicked lusts. They were the persons who assumed to be pre-eminently faithful; and, I believe, you will generally find that it is so, that, when persons are given up to delusion, they always have a very high opinion of themselves. No matter how violent they may be, no matter how evil in their spirit, they claim to be more particularly faithful, and they have no measure in their denunciation of every one that stands in their way. That is exactly the class here described. (Lectures on Jude 16-19 by W. Kelly)
 The meaning of the word is that they were just simply "natural" men. It is the same word that is translated "natural man" in 1 Corinthians 2:14, contrasted with the "spiritual man." So he adds here, "not having the Spirit. (Lectures on Jude 16-19 by W. Kelly)
 When it is said, “These be they who separate themselves,” it does not mean openly from the visible assembly, for he speaks of them as in the midst of it; but they set themselves apart, being in it, as more excellent than others, like the Pharisees among the Jews. (JUDE by J.N. Darby)
 the proverb is true that the corruption of that which is the most excellent is the worst of corruptions. (JUDE by J.N. Darby)
 "These be they who separate themselves," it does not mean openly from the visible Church, but they set themselves apart, being in it, as more excellent than others, like the Pharisees among the Jews. (Jude)
 They will, notwithstanding, "separate themselves," not from evil, either moral or doctrinal, it need scarcely be said, but in a proud Pharisaical spirit, boasting of superior knowledge or intellectual progress, and affecting to despise the humble Christians who still implicitly believe and rest in the word of God; they will thus take a position apart, forming themselves, it may be, into a school of opinion. (article #86573)
 natural men; those who have never been born again, or cleansed in the precious blood of Christ, and hence not having the Spirit of God. (article #86573)

J. N. Darby Translation

These are they who set themselves apart, natural men, not having the Spirit.

W. Kelly Translation

These are they that make separationsa, naturalb, not having [the] Spirit.

WK Translation Notes

The true reading is, "separation" without "themselves." But this sort of separatist is not to be confounded with the schismatic as in {vi 29934}{/vi}, for the mischief was according to the context from their being within, not from their going out. They were certainly far from the mind and grace of Christ; but if they separated the saints from themselves or themselves from the saints, it was not, it would appear, by an outward breach: they carried on their deadly and corrupting work inside.
Or, "soulish." They were psychikoi (sensual), as the KJV and RV say, or rather "natural" men. {vi 28414}{/vi}, uses the word sarkikoi (carnal or fleshly), which is milder, and means one unduly deferring to intellect or fleshly feeling, but a saint (like the Corinthian believers); whereas psychikoi means man in his natural and absolutely unrenewed estate, as indeed here described.
