3 This know also, that ain the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be blovers of their own selves, ccovetous, dboasters, deproud, fblasphemers, ddisobedient to parents, gunthankful, hunholy, 3 iWithout natural affection, itrucebreakers, ||false accusers, kincontinent, fierce, ldespisers of those that are good, 4 mTraitors, nheady, ohighminded, plovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 qHaving a rform of godliness, but sdenying the power thereof: tfrom such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they ttwhich creep into houses, and lead captive silly women uladen with sins, led away with udivers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able vto come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now was Jannes and Jambres xwithstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: ymen of corrupt minds, ||reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall zproceed no further: for their afolly bshall be manifest unto all men, cas theirs also was. 10 But ||dthou hast fully known my edoctrine, fmanner of life, gpurpose, hfaith, longsuffering, hcharity, hpatience, 11 iPersecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at kAntioch, at lIconium, at mLystra; what ipersecutions I endured: but nout of them all the Lord odelivered me. 12 Yea, and pall that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers shall qwax worse and worse, deceiving, and qqbeing deceived. 14 But rcontinue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that sfrom a child tthou hast known uthe holy vscriptures, wwhich are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 xAll scripture is given by inspiration of God, and yis profitable for ydoctrine, for zreproof, for acorrection, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That bthe man of God may be perfect, ||throughly furnished cunto all dgood works.
