2 Timothy 3
He advertiseth him of the times to come,
2 Timothy 3:1 Know also this, that in the last days shall come dangerous times. 2 Timothy 3:2 Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, 2 Timothy 3:3 Without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without kindness, 2 Timothy 3:4 Traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasure more than of God: 2 Timothy 3:5 Having an appearance indeed of godliness but denying the power thereof. Now these avoid.
describeth the enemies of the truth,
2 Timothy 3:6 For of these sort are they who creep into houses and lead captive silly women laden with sins, who are led away with divers desires: 2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never attaining to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Mambres resisted Moses, so these also resist the truth, men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith. 2 Timothy 3:9 But they shall proceed no farther: for their folly shall be manifest to all men, as theirs also was.
propoundeth unto him his own example,
2 Timothy 3:10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, patience, 2 Timothy 3:11 Persecutions, afflictions: such as came upon me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra: what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord delivered me. 2 Timothy 3:12 And all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall grow worse and worse: erring, and driving into error, 2 Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in those things which thou hast learned and which have been committed to thee. Knowing of whom thou hast learned them: 2 Timothy 3:15 And because from thy infancy thou hast known the holy scriptures which can instruct thee to salvation by the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
and commendeth the holy Scriptures.
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture, inspired of God, is profitable to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in justice: 2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, furnished to every good work.
