2 Timothy 3


Evil Men in the Last Days

1But this know! that in the last days [3will be present 2times 1ill-tempered]; 2[3will be 1for 2men] fond of themselves, fond of money, ostentatious, proud, blasphemous, [2of parents 1resisting the persuasion], ungracious, unholy, 3unaffectionate, hostile, devilish, immoderate, untamed, disliking good, 4betrayers, precipitous, being deluded, friends of pleasure rather than friends of God; 5having the appearance of piety, but [2its power 1denying]. Even these turn away from! 6[2from out of 3these 1For] are the ones entering into the houses, and capturing the vain women heaped with sins, being led [2desires 1by various], 7at all times learning, and not at any time [3in 4full knowledge 5of the truth 2to come 1being able]. 8[2in which manner 1And] Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these oppose the truth; men being corrupted in the mind, unproved concerning the belief. 9But they shall not progress unto more; for their thoughtlessness will be evident to all, as also their's was.

Imitate Paul's Conduct

10But you have closely followed my instruction in the conduct, in the intention, in the belief, in the long-suffering, in the love, in the endurance, 11in the persecutions, in the sufferings, such as happened to me in Antioch, in Iconium, in Lystra-- of such persecutions I endured. And from out of all [3rescued me 1the 2Lord]. 12[2even 3all 1But] the ones wanting [2piously 1to live] in Christ Jesus shall be persecuted. 13But wicked men and impostors shall progress unto the worse, misleading, and being misled. 14But you abide in the things which you learned, and were trustworthy! knowing from whom you learned. 15And that from a babe [2the 3consecrated 4writings 1you knew], the ones being able to make you wise unto deliverance, through belief, of the one in Christ Jesus.

Scripture Is God Inspired

16Every scripture is God inspired, and beneficial for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction-- the one in righteousness; 17that [5complete 4should be 1the 3of God 2man] for [2every 4work 3good 1accomplishing].
