2 Timothy 3

“Difficult Times Will Come”

1But realize this, that a  in the last days difficult times will come. 2For 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, 3 j  unloving, irreconcilable k  malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal
Lit not loving good
m  haters of good,
4 n  treacherous o  reckless p  conceited q  lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5holding to a form of
Or religion
s  godliness, although they have t  denied its power; u  Avoid such men as these.
6For 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,
7always learning and never able to aa  come to the
Or recognition
knowledge of the truth.
8Just 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. 9But 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.

10Now you ai  followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, aj  love,
Or steadfastness
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! 12Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus as  will be persecuted. 13But evil men and impostors at  will proceed from bad to worse au  deceiving and being deceived. 14You, however av  continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15and 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;
17so that be  the man of God may be adequate bf  equipped for every good work.
