Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 But of this be assured: in the last days grievous times will set in. 1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.
2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, profane. They will be disobedient to parents, thankless, irreligious, 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 destitute of natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers. They will have no self-control, but will be brutal, opposed to goodness, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
4 treacherous, headstrong, self-important. They will love pleasure instead of loving God, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--
5 and will keep up a make-believe of piety and yet live in defiance of its power. Turn away from people of this sort. 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.
6 Among them are included the men who make their way into private houses and carry off weak women as their prisoners--women who, weighed down by the burden of their sins, are led by ever-changing caprice, 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 and are always learning something new, and yet are never able to arrive at real knowledge of the truth. 7 always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.
8 And just as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so also these false teachers withstand the truth--being, as they are, men of debased intellects, and of no real worth so far as faith is concerned. 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 will have no further success; for their folly will be as clearly manifest to all men, as that of the opponents of Moses 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 you have intimately known my teaching, life, aims, faith, patience, love, resignation, 10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance,
11 and the persecutions and sufferings which I have endured; the things which happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra. You know the persecutions I endured, and how the Lord delivered me out of them all. 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 And indeed every one who is determined to live a godly life as a follower of Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
13 But bad men and impostors will go on from bad to worse, misleading and being misled. 13 while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
14 But you must cling to the things which you have learnt and have been taught to believe, knowing who your teachers were, 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 infancy you have known the sacred writings which are able to make you wise to obtain salvation through faith 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 is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for convincing, for correction of error, and for instruction in right doing; 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
17 so that the man of God may himself be complete and may be perfectly equipped for every good work. 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
