2 Timothy, Chapter 3

3:1 But know this, that in the last days grievous times will come.
3:2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, railers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3:3 without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good,
3:4 traitors, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God;
3:5 holding a form of godliness, but having denied its power: from these also turn away.
3:6 For of these are those who creep into houses, and take captive silly women laden with sins, led away by diverse desires,
3:7 ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
3:8 And even as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also withstand the truth; men corrupted in mind, disapproved concerning the faith.
3:9 But they will proceed no further: for their folly will be evident to all men, as theirs also came to be.
3:10 But you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, patience,
3:11 persecutions, sufferings; what things befell me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: and out of them all the Lord delivered me.
3:12 Yes, and all who would live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.
3:13 But evil men and impostors will wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
3:14 But you stay in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them;
3:15 and that from a baby you have known the sacred writings which are able to make you wise to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
3:16 All Scripture [is] inspired of God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness:
3:17 that the man of God may be complete, furnished completely to every good work.
