Modern Literal Version
[2 Timothy 3]
3:1 But know this, that grievous times will be present in the last days. 3:2 For* men will be lovers of themselves, money-lovers, braggarts, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3:3 cold-hearted, implacable, slanderers, with no self-control, untamed, not lovers of good, 3:4 betrayers, rash, having been puffed up, loving sensual-delights rather than loving God; 3:5 holding to a form of godliness*, but having denied its power. Now turn yourself away from these people. 3:6 For* out of these people are those who are sneaking into houses and capturing immature women, who have been piled up with sins and are led away by various lusts,3:7 always learning and never being able to come to the full knowledge of the truth. 3:8 Now in the manner that Jannes and Jambres stood against Moses so also, are these standing against the truth. Men having been utterly corrupted in their mind, unapproved concerning the faith. 3:9 But they will be progressing no more-than this. For* their mindlessness will be obvious to all people, as that of those men also became.
3:10 But you have followed closely my teaching, my lead, my purpose, my faith, my patience,my love*, my endurance, 3:11my persecutions andmy sufferings, such-as happened to me in Antioch, in Iconium, and in Lystra. I underwent many persecutions such-as these, and the Lord rescued me out of all of them.3:12 But even all who wish to live devoutly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 3:13 But evil men and impostors will be progressing from bad on to worse, misleading and being misled. 3:14 But you, abide in the things which you have learned and were entrusted with, knowing from whom you learned them. 3:15 And you have known, that from a baby, the sacred Scriptures which are able to make you wise to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
3:16 All Scripture is God breathed and is profitable for teaching, for conviction, for correction, for education which is in righteousness, 3:17 in order that the man of God may be equipped, having been utterly equipped *for every good work.
