2 Timothy 3

“Difficult Times Will Come”

But realize this, that a in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be b lovers of self c lovers of money d boastful e arrogant f revilers g disobedient to parents h ungrateful i unholy, j unloving, irreconcilable k malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal
Lit not loving good
,
m haters of good,
n treacherous o reckless p conceited q lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of
Or religion
,
s godliness, although they have t denied its power; u Avoid such men as these.
For among them are those who
Or creep into
,
w enter into households and captivate
Or idle
,
y weak women weighed down with sins, led on by z various impulses,
always learning and never able to aa come to the
Or recognition
knowledge of the truth.
Just as ac Jannes and Jambres ad opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth ae men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress; for their af folly will be obvious to all, just ag as
Lit that of those
Jannes’s and Jambres’s folly was also.

10 Now you ai followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, aj love,
Or steadfastness
perseverance,
11  al persecutions, and am sufferings, such as happened to me at an Antioch, at ao Iconium and at ap Lystra; what aq persecutions I endured, and out of them all ar the Lord rescued me! 12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus as will be persecuted. 13 But evil men and impostors at will proceed from bad to worse au deceiving and being deceived. 14 You, however av continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that aw from childhood you have known ax the sacred writings which are able to ay give you the wisdom that leads to az salvation through faith which is in ba Christ Jesus. 16  bb All Scripture is
Lit God-breathed
inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for
Lit training which is in
training in righteousness;
17 so that be the man of God may be adequate bf equipped for every good work.
