2 Timothy 3

2 Timothy 3:1  
But be certain of this, that in the last days times of trouble will come.

2 Timothy 3:2  
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, uplifted in pride, given to bitter words, going against the authority of their fathers, never giving praise, having no religion,

2 Timothy 3:3  
Without natural love, bitter haters, saying evil of others, violent and uncontrolled, hating all good,

2 Timothy 3:4  
False to their friends, acting without thought, lifted up in mind, loving pleasure more than God;

2 Timothy 3:5  
Having a form of religion, but turning their backs on the power of it: go not with these.

2 Timothy 3:6  
For these are they who go secretly into houses, making prisoners of foolish women, weighted down with sin, turned from the way by their evil desires,

2 Timothy 3:7  
Ever learning, and never coming to the knowledge of what is true.

2 Timothy 3:8  
And as James and Jambres went against Moses, so do these go against what is true: men of evil minds, who, tested by faith, are seen to be false.

2 Timothy 3:9  
But they will go no farther: for their foolish behaviour will be clear to all men, as theirs was in the end.

2 Timothy 3:10  
But you took as your example my teaching, behaviour, purpose, and faith; my long waiting, my love, my quiet undergoing of trouble;

2 Timothy 3:11  
My punishments and pain; the things which came to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; the cruel attacks made on me: and the Lord made me free from them all.

2 Timothy 3:12  
Yes, and all whose purpose is to be living in the knowledge of God in Christ Jesus, will be cruelly attacked.

2 Timothy 3:13  
Evil and false men will become worse and worse, using deceit and themselves overcome by deceit.

2 Timothy 3:14  
But see that you keep to the teaching you have been given and the things of which you are certain, conscious of who has been your teacher;

2 Timothy 3:15  
And that from the time when you were a child, you have had knowledge of the holy Writings, which are able to make you wise to salvation, through faith in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:16  
Every holy Writing which comes from God is of profit for teaching, for training, for guiding, for education in righteousness:

2 Timothy 3:17  
So that the man of God may be complete, trained and made ready for every good work.
