2 Timothy 3
He advertiseth him of the times to come,
2 Timothy 3:1 But, of this, be taking notethat, in last days, there will set in perilous seasons; 2 Timothy 3:2 For men will befond of themselves, fond of money, ostentatious, arrogant, defamers, to parents, unyielding, unthankful, unkind, 2 Timothy 3:3 without natural affection, accepting no truce, given to intrigue, without self-control, uncivilized, unfriendly to good men, 2 Timothy 3:4 traitors, reckless, beclouded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, 2 Timothy 3:5 having a form of godliness, but, the power thereof, denying! and, from these, turn away;
describeth the enemies of the truth,
2 Timothy 3:6 For, of these, are they who enter into the houses, and captivate silly women, [women] laden with sins, led on by manifold covetings, 2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning and never, unto a personal knowledge of truth, able to come; 2 Timothy 3:8 Moreover, like as, Jannes and Jambres, withstood Moses, so, these men also, withstand the truth,men utterly corrupted in their mind, disapproved concerning their faith; 2 Timothy 3:9 But they shall not force their way further, for, their folly, shall be, fully evident, unto all,as also, that of those men, became.
propoundeth unto him his own example,
2 Timothy 3:10 But, thou, hast closely studiedmy teaching, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, endurance, 2 Timothy 3:11 persecutions, sufferings, what manner of things, befell me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra, what manner of persecutions, I endured,and, out of all, the Lord, rescued me; 2 Timothy 3:12 Yea and, all who are determined to live in a godly manner in Christ Jesus, will be persecuted; 2 Timothy 3:13 Whereas, wicked men and howling impostors, will force their way to the worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:14 But, thou,abide in the things which thou hast learned, and been entrusted with, knowing, from whom, thou hast learned [them], 2 Timothy 3:15 And that, from a babe, those sacred letters, thou hast known which are able to make thee wise unto salvation, through the faith which is in Christ Jesus:
and commendeth the holy Scriptures.
2 Timothy 3:16 Every scripture, [is] God-breathed, and profitableunto teaching, unto conviction, unto correction, unto the discipline that is in righteousness, 2 Timothy 3:17 In order that, ready, may be the man, of God, unto every good work, being well-prepared.
