But realizethis, that 1in the lastdaysdifficulttimes will come.
For men will be 2lovers of self, 3lovers of money, 4boastful, 5arrogant, 6revilers, 7disobedient to parents, 8ungrateful, 9unholy,
310unloving, irreconcilable, 11maliciousgossips, withoutself-control, brutal, a12haters of good,
413treacherous, 14reckless, 15conceited, 16lovers of pleasureratherthanlovers of God,
5holding to a form of b17godliness, although they have 18denied its power ; 19Avoid such men as these.
For among them are those who c20enter into households and captivated21weakwomenweigheddown with sins, led on by 22variousimpulses,
7alwayslearning and neverable to 23come to the eknowledge of the truth.
8Just as 24Jannes and Jambres25opposedMoses, sothese men alsooppose the truth, 26men of depravedmind, rejected in regard to the faith.
But they will not makefurtherprogress ; for their 27folly will be obvious to all, just28as fJannes's and Jambres's folly was also.
