Now you 1followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, 2love, aperseverance,
113persecutions, and 4sufferings, such as happened to me at 5Antioch, at 6Iconium and at 7Lystra; what8persecutions I endured, and out of them all9the Lordrescued me!
12Indeed, all who desire to livegodly in ChristJesus10will be persecuted.
But evilmen and impostors11will proceed from bad to worse, 12deceiving and being deceived.
You, however, 13continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them,
and that 14from childhood you have known15the sacredwritings which are able to 16give you the wisdom that leads to 17salvationthroughfaith which is in 18ChristJesus.

17so that 20the man of God may be adequate, 21equipped for everygoodwork.
