2 Timothy 3
He advertiseth him of the times to come,
2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times will come. 2 Timothy 3:2 For men will be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 2 Timothy 3:3 Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 2 Timothy 3:4 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 2 Timothy 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying its power: from such turn away.
describeth the enemies of the truth,
2 Timothy 3:6 For of this sort are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts; 2 Timothy 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2 Timothy 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 2 Timothy 3:9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly will 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, long-suffering, charity, patience, 2 Timothy 3:11 Persecutions, afflictions which came to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of [them] all the Lord delivered me. 2 Timothy 3:12 And all indeed that will live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers will become worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing from whom thou hast learned [them]; 2 Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the sacred scriptures, which are able to make thee wise to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
and commendeth the holy Scriptures.
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished to all good works.
