Chapter 3

2TI.3:1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
2TI.3:2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2TI.3:3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
2TI.3:4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
2TI.3:5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
2TI.3:6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts,
2TI.3:7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
2TI.3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith;
2TI.3:9 but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.
2TI.3:10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance,
2TI.3:11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra–what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me.
2TI.3:12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.
2TI.3:13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
2TI.3:14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,
2TI.3:15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2TI.3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
2TI.3:17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
