2 Timothy 3 (WEBP)

[1] But know this: that in the last days, grievous times will come.
[2] For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
[3] without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, not lovers of good,
[4] traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
[5] holding a form of godliness but having denied its power. Turn away from these, also.
[6] For some of these are people who creep into houses and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts,
[7] always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
[8] Even as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind, who concerning the faith are rejected.
[9] But they will proceed no further. For their folly will be evident to all men, as theirs also came to be.
[10] But you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, steadfastness,
[11] persecutions, and sufferings—those things that happened to me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra. I endured those persecutions. The Lord delivered me out of them all.
[12] Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.
[13] But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.
[14] But you remain in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them.
[15] From infancy, you have known the holy Scriptures which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
[16] Every Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for instruction in righteousness,
[17] that each person who belongs to God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3 (KJVS)

[1] This know () also , that in the last days perilous times shall come ().
[2] For men shall be () lovers of their own selves , covetous , boasters , proud , blasphemers , disobedient to parents , unthankful , unholy ,
[3] Without natural affection , trucebreakers , false accusers , incontinent , fierce , despisers of those that are good ,

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Timothy 3 (YLT)

[1] And this know thou, that in the last days there shall come perilous times,
[2] for men shall be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, evil-speakers, to parents disobedient, unthankful, unkind,
[3] without natural affection, implacable, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, not lovers of those who are good,
[4] traitors, heady, lofty, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God,
[5] having a form of piety, and its power having denied; and from these be turning away,
[6] for of these there are those coming into the houses and leading captive the silly women, laden with sins, led away with desires manifold,
[7] always learning, and never to a knowledge of truth able to come,
[8] and, even as Jannes and Jambres stood against Moses, so also these do stand against the truth, men corrupted in mind, disapproved concerning the faith;
[9] but they shall not advance any further, for their folly shall be manifest to all, as theirs also did become.
[10] And thou-thou hast followed after my teaching, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, endurance,
[11] the persecutions, the afflictions, that befell me in Antioch, in Iconium, in Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of all the Lord did deliver me,
[12] and all also who will to live piously in Christ Jesus shall be persecuted,
[13] and evil men and impostors shall advance to the worse, leading astray and being led astray.
[14] And thou-be remaining in the things which thou didst learn and wast entrusted with, having known from whom thou didst learn,
[15] and because from a babe the Holy Writings thou hast known, which are able to make thee wise-to salvation, through faith that is in Christ Jesus;
[16] every Writing is God-breathed, and profitable for teaching, for conviction, for setting aright, for instruction that is in righteousness,
[17] that the man of God may be fitted-for every good work having been completed.
