1: This know also, that in the last days perilous times will come. 2: For men will be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3: Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4: Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5: Having a form of godliness, but denying its power: from such turn away. 6: For of this sort are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts; 7: Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8: Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9: But they shall proceed no further: for their folly will be manifest to all [men], as theirs also was. 10: But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, charity, patience, 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. 12: And all indeed that will live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13: But evil men and seducers will become worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14: But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing from whom thou hast learned [them]; 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. 16: All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished to all good works.
