1 But know this, that in the last days grievous times shall come. 1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.
2 For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, railers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
4 traitors, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--
5 holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power therefore. From these also turn away. 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.
6 For of these are they that creep into houses, and take captive silly women laden with sins, led away by divers lusts, 6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires,
7 ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 7 always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.
8 And even as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also withstand the truth. Men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth--men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected.
9 But they shall proceed no further. For their folly shall be evident unto all men, as theirs also came to be. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
10 But thou didst follow my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, patience, 10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance,
11 persecutions, sufferings. What things befell me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 11 persecutions, sufferings--what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them.
12 Yea, and all that would live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
13 But evil men and impostors shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 13 while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
14 But abide thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it,
15 And that from a babe thou hast known the sacred writings which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 15 and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.
16 Every scripture inspired of God [is] also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
17 That the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work. 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
