2 Timothy 3

But this know thou, that in the latter days hard times will come: and men will be lovers of themselves, and lovers of money, boasters, proud, censorious, unyielding towards their own people, denyers of grace, wicked, calumniators, addicted to concupiscence, ferocious, haters of the good, treacherous, rash, inflated, attached to pleasure more than to the love of God, having a form of respect for God, but wide from the power of God. Them who are such, repel from thee. For of them are they who creep into this and that house, and captivate the women who are plunged in sins and led away by divers lusts, who are always learning, and can never come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so also do these withstand the truth: men whose mind is corrupted, and they reprobates from the faith. But they will not make progress, for their infatuation will be understood by every one, as theirs also was understood. 10 But thou hast followed after my doctrine, and my manner of life, and my aims, and my faith, and my long suffering, and my love, and my patience, 11 and my persecution, and my sufferings. And thou knowest what I endured at Antioch, and at Iconium, and at Lystra; what persecution I endured: and from all these my Lord delivered me. 12 And likewise all, who choose to live in the fear of God, in Jesus the Messiah, will be persecuted. 13 But evil and seducing men will add to their wickedness, while they deceive and are deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things thou hast learned and been assured of; for thou knowest from whom thou learnedst; 15 because from thy childhood, thou wast taught the holy books, which can make thee wise unto life, by faith in Jesus the Messiah. 16 All scripture that was written by the Spirit, is profitable for instruction, and for confutation, and for correction, and for erudition in righteousness; 17 that the man of God may become perfect, and complete for every good work.
