2 Timothy 3
He advertiseth him of the times to come,
2 Timothy 3:1 Bvt this shalt thou knowe, that in the last dayes shal come parelous tymes. 2 Timothy 3:2 For there shalbe me which shal holde of the selues, couetous, boasters, proude, cursed speakers, dishobedient to their elders, vnthankfull, vngoostly, 2 Timothy 3:3 vnkynde, truce breakers, false accusers, ryatours, fearce, despysers of them which are good, 2 Timothy 3:4 traytours, heady, hye mynded, gredy vpon voluptuousnes more then the louers of God, 2 Timothy 3:5 hauynge a shyne off godly lyuynge, but denyenge the power therof. And soch avoyde.
describeth the enemies of the truth,
2 Timothy 3:6 Of this sorte are they which rune fro house to house, & brynge in to bondage weme lade wt synne: which (wemen) are led with dyuerse lustes, 2 Timothy 3:7 euer lernynge, and are neuer able to come vnto the knowlege of the trueth. 2 Timothy 3:8 But like as Iamnes and Iabres withstode Moses, euen so do these also resist the trueth: me they are of corrupte myndes, and lewde as cocernynge ye faith: 2 Timothy 3:9 but they shal preuayle no longer. For their folishnes shalbe manifest vnto all men, as theirs was.
propoundeth unto him his own example,
2 Timothy 3:10 But thou hast sene the experience of my doctryne, my fasshion of lyuynge, my purpose, my faith, my longsufferynge, my loue, my pacience, 2 Timothy 3:11 my persecucions, my affliccions, which happened vnto me at Antioche, at Iconium, at Lystra, which persecucions I suffred paciently, and from the all the LORDE delyuered me. 2 Timothy 3:12 Yee and all they that wil lyue godly in Christ Iesu, must suffre persecucion. 2 Timothy 3:13 But the euell men and disceauers shal waxe worse and worse, disceauynge and beynge disceaued. 2 Timothy 3:14 But contynue thou in the thinges that thou hast lerned, which also were comytted vnto the, seynge thou knowest of who thou hast learned them, 2 Timothy 3:15 And for so moch as thou hast knowne holy scripture of a childe, the same is able to make ye wyse vnto saluacion thorow the faith in Christ Iesu.
and commendeth the holy Scriptures.
2 Timothy 3:16 For all scripture geue by inspiracion of God, is profitable to teach, to improue, to amende, and to instructe in righteousnes, 2 Timothy 3:17 that a man off God maye be perfecte, and prepared vnto all good workes.
