1 Timothy 4:1-3

Some Will Depart from the Faith

1Now a  the Spirit expressly says that b  in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to c  deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2through the insincerity of d  liars whose consciences are seared, 3 e  who forbid marriage and f  require abstinence from foods g  that God created h  to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.

2 Timothy 3:1-5

Godlessness in the Last Days

1But understand this, that i  in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2For people will be j  lovers of self k  lovers of money l  proud m  arrogant, abusive n  disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 o  heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal p  not loving good, 4treacherous, reckless q  swollen with conceit r  lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5having the appearance of godliness, but s  denying its power. t  Avoid such people.

2 Peter 2

False Prophets and Teachers

1But u  false prophets also arose among the people v  just as there will be false teachers among you, who will w  secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master x  who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth y  will be blasphemed. 3And z  in their greed they will exploit you aa  with false words. ab  Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.

4For if God did not spare ac  angels when they sinned, but ad  cast them into hell
Greek Tartarus
and committed them to chains
Some manuscripts pits
of gloomy darkness ag  to be kept until the judgment;
5if he did not spare the ancient world, but ah  preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought ai  a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6if by aj  turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction ak  making them an example of al  what is going to happen to the ungodly;
Some manuscripts an example to those who were to be ungodly
7and an  if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked 8(for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, ao  he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); 9then ap  the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials,
Or temptations
and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment,
10and especially ar  those who indulge
Greek  who go after the flesh
in the lust of defiling passion and at  despise authority.

Bold and willful, they do not tremble au  as they blaspheme the glorious ones,
11 av  whereas angels, though greater in might and power, do not pronounce a blasphemous judgment against them before the Lord. 12 aw  But these, like irrational animals ax  creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheming about matters of which they are ignorant, will also be destroyed in their destruction, 13suffering wrong as ay  the wage for their wrongdoing. They count it pleasure az  to revel in the daytime. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions
Some manuscripts love feasts
while bb  they feast with you.
14They have eyes full of adultery, bc  insatiable for sin. They entice unsteady souls. They have hearts bd  trained in greed. be  Accursed children! 15Forsaking the right way bf  they have gone astray. They have followed bg  the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved bh  gain from wrongdoing, 16but was rebuked for his own transgression; bi  a speechless donkey spoke with human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness.

17 bj  These are waterless springs and mists driven by a storm. bk  For them the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved. 18For bl  speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely bm  escaping from those who live in error. 19They promise them bn  freedom, bo  but they themselves are slaves
Greek bondservants
of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved.
20For if bq  after they have escaped the defilements of the world br  through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome bs  the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21For bt  it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from bu  the holy commandment delivered to them. 22What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The bv  dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”

Revelation of John 1:1

Revelation of John 6

The Seven Seals

1Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of cd  the seven seals, and I heard ce  one of the four living creatures say cf  with a voice like thunder cg  Come!” 2And I looked, and behold ch  a white horse! And ci  its rider had a bow, and cj  a crown was given to him, and he came out ck  conquering, and to conquer.

3When he opened the second seal, I heard cl  the second living creature say, “Come!” 4And out came another horse cm  bright red. Its rider was permitted cn  to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

5When he opened the third seal, I heard the co  third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold cp  a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. 6And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying cq  “A quart
Greek choinix, a dry measure equal to about a quart
of wheat for a denarius
A  denarius was a day’s wage for a laborer
and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and ct  do not harm the oil and wine!”

7When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of cu  the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8And I looked, and behold cv  a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill cw  with sword and with famine and with pestilence and cx  by wild beasts of the earth.

9When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under cy  the altar cz  the souls of those who had been slain da  for the word of God and for db  the witness they had borne. 10They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, dc  holy and true, dd  how long de  before you will judge and df  avenge our blood on dg  those who dwell on the earth?” 11Then they were each given dh  a white robe and di  told to rest a little longer dj  until the number of their fellow servants
Greek  fellow bondservants
and their brothers
Or  brothers and sisters. The plural Greek word adelphoi (translated “brothers”) refers to siblings in a family. In New Testament usage, depending on the context, adelphoi may refer either to men or to both men and women who are siblings (brothers and sisters) in God’s family, the church
dm  should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.

12When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold dn  there was a great earthquake, and do  the sun became black as dp  sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, 13and dq  the stars of the sky fell to the earth dr  as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. 14 ds  The sky vanished dt  like a scroll that is being rolled up, and du  every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15Then the kings of the earth and the great ones and the generals and the rich and the powerful, and everyone, slave
Or servant; Greek bondservant
and free dw  hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains,
16 dx  calling to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of dy  him who is seated on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17for dz  the great day of their wrath has come, and ea  who can stand?”

Revelation of John 22

The River of Life

1Then the angel
Greek he
showed me ec  the river of ed  the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
2through the middle of ee  the street of the city; ef  also, on either side of the river eg  the tree of life
Or  the Lamb. In the midst of the street of the city, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life
with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were ei  for the healing of the nations.
3 ej  No longer will there be anything accursed, but ek  the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and el  his servants
Greek bondservants; also verse 6
will worship him.
4 en  They will see his face, and eo  his name will be on their foreheads. 5And ep  night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp eq  or sun, for er  the Lord God will be their light, and es  they will reign forever and ever.

Jesus Is Coming

6And he said to me et  These words are trustworthy and true. And the Lord, the God of eu  the spirits of the prophets ev  has sent his angel to show his servants what must soon take place.”

7And behold ew  I am coming soon. ex  Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”

8I ey  John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw them, ez  I fell down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me, 9 fa  but he said to me, “You must not do that! I am a fellow servant
Greek  fellow bondservant
with you and your brothers the prophets, and with those fc  who keep the words of this book. Worship God.”

10And he said to me fd  “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. 11 fe  Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.”

12Behold ff  I am coming soon fg  bringing my recompense with me fh  to repay each one for what he has done. 13 fi  I am the Alpha and the Omega fj  the first and the last fk  the beginning and the end.”

14Blessed are those who fl  wash their robes
Some manuscripts do his commandments
so that they may have the right to fn  the tree of life and that fo  they may enter the city by the gates.
15 fp  Outside are fq  the dogs fr  and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

16 fs  I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things ft  for the churches. I am fu  the root and fv  the descendant of David fw  the bright morning star.”

17The Spirit and fx  the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And fy  let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the fz  water of life without price.

18I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: ga  if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, 19and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in gb  the tree of life and in gc  the holy city, which are described in this book.

20He who testifies to these things says, Surely gd  I am coming soon.” Amen. ge  Come, Lord Jesus!

21The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all.
Some manuscripts  all the saints
