Rough Draft Translation of Jude 1-4

Here is the beginning of my translation of Jude. 

1. Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ and brother of James. To those who are called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ.

2. May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you.

3. Dear friends, while I was making every effort to write to you concerning our common salvation, I felt it necessary to write to you, appealing that you contend passionately for the faith once for all passed down to the saints.

4. For certain people slipped in among you – people who were long ago written about for this condemnation – ungodly people who turned the grace of our God into a license for evil and are denying our only master and lord Jesus Christ.
