In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,113
while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse,2 deceiving and being deceived.314
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it,415
and how from infancy5 you have known the holy Scriptures,6 which are able to make you wise7 for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
All Scripture is God-breathed8 and is useful for teaching,9 rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,1017
so that the man of God11 may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.12
