Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 But know thou this thing, that in the last days perilous times shall approach [shall nigh], 1 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.
2 and men shall be loving themselves, covetous, high of bearing, proud, blasphemers, not obedient to father and mother, unkind, cursed, 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 without affection, without peace, false blamers, uncontinent, unmild, without benignity, [+without affection, or good will, without peace, false challengers, uncontinent, or unchaste, unmild, without benignity,] 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
4 traitors, over-thwart [froward], swollen with proud thoughts [blown], blind, lovers of lusts more than of God, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--
5 having the likeness of piety, but denying the virtue of it. And eschew thou these men. 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.
6 Of these they be that pierce houses, and lead women captives [and lead little women captive] charged with sins, which be led with diverse desires, 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 evermore learning, and never perfectly coming to the science of truth. [evermore learning, and never perfectly coming to the knowing of truth.] 7 always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.
8 And as Jannes and Jambres against-stood Moses, so [and] these against-stand the truth, men corrupt in understanding [men corrupt in soul, or understanding], reproved about 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 further they shall not profit, for the unwisdom of them shall be known to all men, as [and] theirs was. 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 hast gotten my teaching [my doctrine], ordinance, purposing [purpose], faith, long abiding, love, patience, 10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance,
11 persecutions, passions, which were made to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra, what manner persecutions I suffered, and the Lord hath delivered me of all [and the Lord delivered me of 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 all men that will live faithfully in Christ Jesus [And all men that will live piously, or faithfully, 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 deceivers shall increase into worse, erring, and sending into error. [Forsooth evil men and deceivers shall profit into worse, erring themselves, and sending others into error.] 13 while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
14 But dwell thou in these things that thou hast learned, and that be betaken to thee, witting of whom thou hast learned; 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 for thou hast known holy letters from thy youth, which be able to learn thee to health [and for thou hast known holy letters from thy youth, or childhood, the which may inform thee to health], by faith that 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 For all scripture inspired of God is profitable to teach, to reprove, to chastise, [for] to learn in rightwiseness, 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,
17 that the man of God be perfect, learned to all good work [learned to all good works]. 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
