1 This but know thou, that in latter days will be present seasons trying.
2 Will be for the men selflovers, moneylovers, boasters, haughty ones, revilers, to parents disobedient, unthankful ones, unholy ones,

16 All writing inspired of God and profitable for teaching, for proof, for correction, for turning up that in righteousness;
17 so that complete may be the of the God man, for every work good having been thoroughly fitted,
