You must understand this, that in the last days distressing times will come.
For people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, brutes, haters of good,
treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
holding to the outward form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid them!
For among them are those who make their way into households and captivate silly women, overwhelmed by their sins and swayed by all kinds of desires,
who are always being instructed and can never arrive at a knowledge of the truth.
As Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these people, of corrupt mind and counterfeit faith, also oppose the truth.
But they will not make much progress, because, as in the case of those two men, a their folly will become plain to everyone.
