2 Timothy 3
He advertiseth him of the times to come,
2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last dayes perillous times shall come. 2 Timothy 3:2 For men shall bee louers of their owne selues, couetous, boasters, proude, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, vnthankfull, vnholy, 2 Timothy 3:3 Without naturall affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 2 Timothy 3:4 Traitours, heady, high minded, louers of pleasures more then louers of God, 2 Timothy 3:5 Hauing a forme of godlinesse, but denying the power thereof: from such turne away.
describeth the enemies of the truth,
2 Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and leade captiue silly women laden with sinnes, led away with diuers lusts, 2 Timothy 3:7 Euer learning, and neuer able to come to the knowledge of the trueth. 2 Timothy 3:8 Now as Iannes and Iambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the trueth: men of corrupt mindes, reprobate concerning the faith. 2 Timothy 3:9 But they shal proceede no further: for their folly shall be manifest vnto all [men], as theirs also was.
propoundeth unto him his own example,
2 Timothy 3:10 But thou hast fully knowen my doctrine, maner of life, purpose, faith, long suffering, charitie, patience, 2 Timothy 3:11 Persecutions, afflictions which came vnto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra, what persecutions I indured: but out of them all the Lord deliuered me. 2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will liue godly in Christ Iesus, shall suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 3:13 But euill men and seducers shall waxe worse and worse, deceiuing, and being deceiued. 2 Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned, and hast been assured of, knowing of whome thou hast learned [them]. 2 Timothy 3:15 And that from a childe thou hast knowen the holy Scriptures, which are able to make thee wise vnto saluation through faith which is in Christ Iesus.
and commendeth the holy Scriptures.
2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture [is] giuen by inspiration of God, & is profitable for doctrine, for reproofe, for correction, for instrution in righteousnesse, 2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished vnto all good workes.
