This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Jud 1:7. Τούτοις) [in a manner like] to these, the ungodly, who are doomed to undergo a like punishment.-ἐκπορνεύσασαι) giving themselves to fornication. For the simple verb πορνεύω, זנה, the Septuagint often has ἐκπορνεύω. But here the word is peculiarly adapted to a lust still more abominable.-ἀπελθοῦσαι-ἑτέρας, going away after-other) unnatural lusts.-[πρόκεινται, are set forth, lie before our eyes) The cities therefore were situated, not in the Dead Sea, but upon the shore.-V. g.]-δεῖγμα-δίκην, an example-punishment) These are put in apposition; the punishment, which they endure, is an example of eternal fire, as Cassiodorus says: for the punishment of those cities is not itself eternal: Eze 16:53; Eze 16:55. Comp. 2Pe 2:6.
