Chapter 3

2nd Tim. 3:1 This know also, that in the last days terrifying times will come.

2nd Tim. 3:2 For men will be self-lovers, money-lovers, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

2nd Tim. 3:3 without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, without self-control, untamed, despisers of those that are good,

2nd Tim. 3:4 traitors, reckless, blinded with pride, pleasure-lovers more than God-lovers;

2nd Tim. 3:5 holding an external godliness, but denying the power Himself: turn away from these.

2nd Tim. 3:6 For these are they which sneak into homes, and dominate little housewives overwhelmed with sins, led along with manifold sexual desires,

2nd Tim. 3:7 always learning, and not even able to come to the full knowledge of the reality.

2nd Tim. 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the reality: men of depraved minds, unapproved concerning the faith.

2nd Tim. 3:9 But they will advance no further: for their folly will be manifest to all men, as theirs also was.

2nd Tim. 3:10 But you have fully known my teaching, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, patience,

2nd Tim. 3:11 persecutions, afflictions, which came to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

2nd Tim. 3:12 Yes, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

2nd Tim. 3:13 But evil men and charlatans will grow worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

2nd Tim. 3:14 But you continue in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them;

2nd Tim. 3:15 and that from a newborn you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise into salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

2nd Tim. 3:16 All Scripture is God breathing, and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2nd Tim. 3:17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped fully for every good work.
