Jude 1:5 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I will therefore put you in remembrance - That is, how such persons were proscribed, and condemned to bear the punishment due to such crimes.
Though ye once knew this - The word ἁπαξ, here translated once, has greatly puzzled many interpreters. It has two meanings in the sacred writings, and indeed in the Greek writers also.
1. It signifies once, one time, as opposed to twice, or several times.
2. Altogether, entirely, perfectly, interpreted by Suidas αντι τον διολου, ὁλοσχερως· and of this meaning he produces a proof from Josephus; This appears to be the sense of the word in Hebrews 6:4 : τους ἁπαξ φωτισθεντας· those who were Fully enlightened. Hebrews 10:2 : ἁπαξ κεκαθαρμενους· Thoroughly cleansed. See also Hebrews 10:3. Psalm 62:11 : ἁπαξ ελαλησεν ὁ Θεος. God spoke Fully, completely, on the subject. St. Jude is to be understood as saying, I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye are Thoroughly instructed in this.
Saved the people - Delivered them from the Egyptian bondage.
Afterward destroyed them - Because they neither believed his word, nor were obedient to his commands. This is the first example of what was mentioned Jde 1:4.

I. First, then, our text suggests AN INQUIRY--Have we the Spirit? This …

The Twofold Bearing of this Fact.
And on that very day the LORD brought the Israelites out of Egypt by their divisions.
In spite of this, you did not trust in the LORD your God,
The LORD's hand was against them until he had completely eliminated them from the camp.
1 Corinthians 10:5
Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.
Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt?
