2 TIMOTHY 3

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

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

 3:3   Without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, without self-control, savage, not lovers of good,

 3:4   Traitors, reckless, blinded with pride, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

 3:5   Having an outward form of godliness, though denying its power; from these also turn away.

 3:6   For of these are those who creep into houses and take captive silly women heaped with sins, who are led by various desires

 3:7   And are always learning yet never able to come to the full knowledge of the truth.

 3:8   And in the manner that Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these also oppose the truth; men corrupted in mind, disapproved concerning the faith.

 3:9   But they will not advance farther, for their folly will be completely manifest to all, as also the folly of those became.

 3:10   But you have closely followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, endurance,

 3:11   Persecutions, sufferings, such as befell me in Antioch, in Iconium, in Lystra. Such persecutions I bore, and out of them all the Lord delivered me.

 3:12   And indeed all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

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

 3:14   But you, continue in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from which ones you have learned them

 3:15   And that from a babe you have known the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

 3:16   All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

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