NASB — 2 Timothy 3 — KJV

“Difficult Times Will Come”

1 But realize this, that ain the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be alovers of self, blovers of money, cboastful, carrogant, drevilers, cdisobedient to parents, eungrateful, funholy, 3 aunloving, irreconcilable, bmalicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, Ichaters of good, 4 atreacherous, breckless, cconceited, dlovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of Iagodliness, although they have bdenied its power; cAvoid such men as these. 6 For among them are those who Iaenter into households and captivate IIbweak women weighed down with sins, led on by cvarious impulses, 7 always learning and never able to acome to the Iknowledge of the truth. 8 Just as aJannes and Jambres bopposed Moses, so these [men] also oppose the truth, cmen of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith. 9 But they will not make further progress; for their afolly will be obvious to all, just bas IJannes’s and Jambres’s folly was also.

He advertiseth him of the times to come,

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, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

describeth the enemies of the truth,

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all [men], as theirs also was.
