1 But, of this, be taking note - that, in last days, there will set in perilous seasons; 2 For men will be - fond of themselves, fond of money, ostentatious, arrogant, defamers, to parents, unyielding, unthankful, unkind, 3 without natural affection, accepting no truce, given to intrigue, without self-control, uncivilized, unfriendly to good men, 4 traitors, reckless, beclouded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness, but, the power thereof, denying! and, from these, turn away;
6 For, of these, are they who enter into the houses, and captivate silly women, women laden with sins, led on by manifold covetings, 7 Ever learning and never, unto a personal knowledge of truth, able to come; 8 Moreover, like as, Jannes and Jambres, withstood Moses, so, these men also, withstand the truth, - men utterly corrupted in their mind, disapproved concerning their faith; 9 But they shall not force their way further, for, their folly, shall be, fully evident, unto all, - as also, that of those men, became.
10 But, thou, hast closely studied - my teaching, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings, what manner of things, befell me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra, what manner of persecutions, I endured, - and, out of all, the Lord, rescued me; - 12 Yea and, all who are determined to live in a godly manner in Christ Jesus, will be persecuted; 13 Whereas, wicked men and howling impostors, will force their way to the worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But, thou, - abide in the things which thou hast learned, and been entrusted with, knowing, from whom, thou hast learned them , - 15 And that, from a babe, those sacred letters, thou hast known which are able to make thee wise unto salvation, through the faith which is in Christ Jesus: 16 Every scripture, is God-breathed, and profitable - unto teaching, unto conviction, unto correction, unto the discipline that is in righteousness, - 17 In order that, ready, may be the man, of God, unto every good work, being well-prepared.
