2 Timothy 3
He advertiseth him of the times to come,
2 Timothy 3:1 And this know thou, that in the last days there shall come perilous times, 2 Timothy 3:2 for men shall be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, evil-speakers, to parents disobedient, unthankful, unkind, 2 Timothy 3:3 without natural affection, implacable, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, not lovers of those who are good, 2 Timothy 3:4 traitors, heady, lofty, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, 2 Timothy 3:5 having a form of piety, and its power having denied; and from these be turning away,
describeth the enemies of the truth,
2 Timothy 3:6 for of these there are those coming into the houses and leading captive the silly women, laden with sins, led away with desires manifold, 2 Timothy 3:7 always learning, and never to a knowledge of truth able to come, 2 Timothy 3:8 and, even as Jannes and Jambres stood against Moses, so also these do stand against the truth, men corrupted in mind, disapproved concerning the faith; 2 Timothy 3:9 but they shall not advance any further, for their folly shall be manifest to all, as theirs also did become.
propoundeth unto him his own example,
2 Timothy 3:10 And thouthou hast followed after my teaching, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, endurance, 2 Timothy 3:11 the persecutions, the afflictions, that befell me in Antioch, in Iconium, in Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of all the Lord did deliver me, 2 Timothy 3:12 and all also who will to live piously in Christ Jesus shall be persecuted, 2 Timothy 3:13 and evil men and impostors shall advance to the worse, leading astray and being led astray. 2 Timothy 3:14 And thoube remaining in the things which thou didst learn and wast entrusted with, having known from whom thou didst learn, 2 Timothy 3:15 and because from a babe the Holy Writings thou hast known, which are able to make thee wiseto salvation, through faith that [is] in Christ Jesus;
and commendeth the holy Scriptures.
2 Timothy 3:16 every Writing [is] God-breathed, and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for setting aright, for instruction that [is] in righteousness, 2 Timothy 3:17 that the man of God may be fittedfor every good work having been completed.
