2 Timothy Chapter 3

New Testament / Second Epistle to Timothy / Chapter 3

1-9 But know this that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men will be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of those who are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. From such people turn away. For of this sort are those who creep into houses and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away with various lusts, ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. As Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all men, as theirs also was.

10-15 But you have fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, persecutions, afflictions, which came to me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured. But out of them, all the Lord delivered me. Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and the foolhardy will become worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you continue in the things you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood, you have known the holy scriptures, which can make you wise to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
