But left their own habitation; viz. a heavenly one, from whence, though they were righteously thrust out by God, 2Pe_2:4, yet they may be truly said to have left it themselves, in that they voluntarily rebelled against the law of their creation, and committed that sin which they knew would certainly be punished with such a dejection.

He hath reserved in everlasting chains; into which, Peter says, they were delivered.
