(Jude 6-8 by W. Kelly)
 they are called " dreamers," indicating that, as not being guided by the truth, all their thoughts and speculations, their hopes and confidence, were but idle dreams….The power of God is not in these, nor the restraints of His grace, in a renewed nature; consequently there is no curb to licentiousness, nor any yoke or chain for the pride which disdains the restraints of authority and spurns with irreverence and contempt everything that is above itself. (The Epistle of Jude)

J. N. Darby Translation

W. Kelly Translation

aYet likewise, these dreamers also defile flesh, and set at nought lordship and rail at dignities.

WK Translation Notes

Yet... ^ dreamers: the Revisers rightly give us "yet," and drop "filthy," which is implied in the context, as they represent well the anarthrous force of οὖτοι ἐνυπν., which can hardly bear "these dreamers," but means rather "these in their dreams," or "dreaming as they do." (Bible Treasury 14:127)
^ dreamers: I do not know any reason for putting in the word "filthy." You will see the word is in italics. (Lect. on Jude, p.68)
^ flesh: It is not spiritual defilement, but fleshly. "The" makes it too concrete, as in all the old English versions. (Bible Treasury 15:144)
