People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money,1 boastful, proud,2 abusive,3 disobedient to their parents,4 ungrateful, unholy,
without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
treacherous,5 rash, conceited,6 lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--
having a form of godliness7 but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.86
They are the kind who worm their way9 into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires,
always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.108
Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses,11 so also these men oppose12 the truth--men of depraved minds,13 who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected.
