Persecutions, afflictions: such as came upon me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra: what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord delivered me.
And all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
But evil men and seducers shall grow worse and worse: erring, and driving into error,
But continue thou in those things which thou hast learned and which have been committed to thee. Knowing of whom thou hast learned them:
And because from thy infancy thou hast known the holy scriptures which can instruct thee to salvation by the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture, inspired of God, is profitable to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in justice:
That the man of God may be perfect, furnished to every good work.
