2 Timothy 3
He advertiseth him of the times to come,
2 Timothy 3:1 Thys knowe, that in the last dayes shall come parelous tymes. 2 Timothy 3:2 For men shalbe louers of theyr awne selues, coueteous, boasters, proude, cursed speakers, dysobedient to fathers and mothers, vnthankfull, vngodly, 2 Timothy 3:3 vnkynde, trucebreakers, falseaccusars, riatours, fearce, despisers of them which are good, 2 Timothy 3:4 traytours, heady, hye mynded, gredy vpon volupteousnes more then the louers of God, 2 Timothy 3:5 hauynge a symilitude of godlynesse, but haue denyed the power therof: and soch abhorre.
describeth the enemies of the truth,
2 Timothy 3:6 For of thys sorte are they, which entre into houses, and bringe into bondage wemen laden wt synne, which wemen are led with diuers lustes, 2 Timothy 3:7 euer learnynge, and neuer able to come vnto the knowledge of the trueth. 2 Timothy 3:8 As Iannes & Iambres withstode Moses, euen so do these also resyst the trueth: men they are of corrupt myndes, and lewde as concerninge the fayth: 2 Timothy 3:9 but they shall preuayle no lenger. For their madnes shalbe vttered vnto all men euen as theirs was.
propoundeth unto him his own example,
2 Timothy 3:10 But thou hast sene the experience of my doctryne, fassyon of lyuinge, purpose, fayth, longe sufferynge, loue, pacience, 2 Timothy 3:11 persecucyons, and affliccyons whych happened vnto me at Antioche, at Iconium, and at Lystra: which persecutions I suffered paciently. And from them all, the Lorde delyuered me. 2 Timothy 3:12 Yee, and all they that wyll lyue godly in Christ Iesu shall suffre persecutyon. 2 Timothy 3:13 But the euyll men & disceauers shall wexe worsse and worsse, whill they deceaue and are deceaued them selues. 2 Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in the thynges which thou hast learned, which also were commytted vnto the, knowinge of whom thou hast learned them, 2 Timothy 3:15 and for as moch also as of a chylde thou hast knowen the holy scriptures which are able to make the lerned vnto saluacyon thorow the fayth which is in Christ Iesu.
