persecutions, and sufferings; those things that happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; those persecutions that I endured. Out of them all the Lord delivered me.
Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.
But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them.
From infancy, you have known the sacred writings which are able to make you wise to salvation through faith, which is in Christ Jesus.
Every writing inspired by God is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction which is in righteousness,
that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
