2 Timothy 3
He advertiseth him of the times to come,
2 Timothy 3:1 This knowe also, that in the last dayes shall come perilous times. 2 Timothy 3:2 For men shalbe louers of their owne selues, couetous, boasters, proud, cursed speakers, disobedient to parents, vnthankefull, vnholy, 2 Timothy 3:3 Without naturall affection, truce breakers, false accusers, intemperate, fierce, no louers at all of them which are good, 2 Timothy 3:4 Traitours, headie, high minded, louers of pleasures more then louers of God, 2 Timothy 3:5 Hauing a shewe of godlinesse, but haue denied the power thereof: turne away therefore from such.
describeth the enemies of the truth,
2 Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they which creepe into houses, and leade captiue simple women laden with sinnes, and led with diuers lustes, 2 Timothy 3:7 Which women are euer learning, and are neuer able to come to the acknowledging of the trueth. 2 Timothy 3:8 And as Iannes and Iambres withstoode Moses, so doe these also resist the trueth, men of corrupt mindes, reprobate concerning the faith. 2 Timothy 3:9 But they shall preuaile no longer: for their madnesse shalbe euident vnto all men, as theirs also was.
propoundeth unto him his own example,
2 Timothy 3:10 But thou hast fully knowen my doctrine, maner of liuing, purpose, faith, long suffering, loue, patience, 2 Timothy 3:11 Persecutions, and afflictions which came vnto me at Antiochia, at Iconium, and at Lystri, which persecutions I suffered: but from them all the Lord deliuered me. 2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will liue godly in Christ Iesus, shall suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 3:13 But the euill men and deceiuers, shall waxe worse and worse, deceiuing, and being deceiued. 2 Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in the thinges which thou hast learned, and which are committed vnto thee, knowing of who thou hast learned them: 2 Timothy 3:15 And that thou hast knowen the holy Scriptures of a childe, which are able to make thee wise vnto saluation, through the faith which is in Christ Iesus.
and commendeth the holy Scriptures.
2 Timothy 3:16 For the whole Scripture is giuen by inspiration of God, and is profitable to teache, to conuince, to correct, and to instruct in righteousnesse, 2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be absolute, being made perfect vnto all good workes.
