Before mentioning the 3 verses that really stuck out here, would vs. 3 not read better if instead of "I was eager to write you" – "I was eager to write to you" was used? I’m not sure how we write someone, I know how we write to someone. All the other translations I looked at – had "to".

Jude 1:7 (The HCSBse and NET now both mention angels specifically)
(ESV) “just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.”

(TNIV) “In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.”

(NLT) “And don’t forget Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion. Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God’s judgment.”

(NET) “So also Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighboring towns, since they indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire in a way similar to these angels, are now displayed as an example by suffering the punishment of eternal fire.”

NET Note: “Angels” is not in the Greek text; but the masculine demonstrative pronoun most likely refers back to the angels of v. 6.

Jude 1:17
(ESV) “But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

(TNIV) “But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.”

(NLT) “But you, my dear friends, must remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ said.”

Jude 1:19
(ESV) “It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit.”

(TNIV) “These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit. ”

(NLT) “These people are the ones who are creating divisions among you. They follow their natural instincts because they do not have God’s Spirit in them.”

ESVSB Note: These worldly people (Gk. psychikos, “natural, unspiritual, worldly, of this world”)…They are unbelievers like the “natural” (also Gk. psychikos) person of 1 Cor. 2:14. Devoid of (Gk. mē echontes, “not having”) the Spirit is another indication that these opponents are unbelievers (cf. Rom. 8:9).

NET Note: Or “natural,” that is, living on the level of instincts, not on a spiritual level (the same word occurs in 1 Cor 2:14 as a description of nonbelievers)….The phrase devoid of the Spirit may well indicate Jude’s and Peter’s assessment of the spiritual status of the false teachers. Those who do not have the Spirit are clearly not saved.
