THE BIBLE

2nd Timothy
Chapter 3


3:1  But know this, that in the last days, grievous times will come.

3:2  For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3:3  without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good,

3:4  traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God;

3:5  holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof. Turn away from these, also.

3:6  For of these are those who creep into houses, and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts,

3:7  always learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

3:8  Even as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so do these also oppose the truth; men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith.

3:9  But they will proceed no further. For their folly will be evident to all men, as theirs also came to be.

3:10  But you did follow my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, steadfastness,

3:11  persecutions, and sufferings: those things that happened to me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. I endured those persecutions. Out of them all the Lord delivered me.

3:12  Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

3:13  But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

3:14  But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them.

3:15  From infancy, you have known the sacred writings which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith, which is in Christ Jesus.

3:16  Every writing inspired by God is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction which is in righteousness,

3:17  that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
