1 But know this, that in the last days hard times will come;
2 and men will be lovers of themselves, and lovers of money, boastful, lofty, blasphemous, to their men not obedient, deniers of grace, impious, calumniators,
3 subjected to lust, brutal, haters of the good,
4 traitors, impetuous, puffed up, lovers of lusts rather than the love of Aloha;
5 having a form of the worship of Aloha, but from the power of Aloha afar off: (them) who are such put from thee.
6 For of them are they who creep into houses, and captivate women who are overladen with sins, and led away by divers lusts;
7 who, in all time learning, never to the knowledge of the truth are able to come.
8 But as Yonis and Yanbris stood against Musha, so also these stand against the truth: men whose understanding is corrupted, and reprobate from the faith.
9 But they shall not come further, for their folly is known to all men, as also of them it is known.
10 BUT thou hast followed my doctrine and my manners, and my purpose, and my faith, and my prolongedness of mind, and my charity, and my patience,
11 and my persecution, and my sufferings. And thou knowest what things I endured in Antioch, and in Ikonion, and in Lystra, what persecution I endured; and out of all these my Lord delivered me.
12 But all they who will in the fear of Aloha to live in Jeshu Meshiha, are persecuted.
13 But wicked men and seducers add to their wickedness, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But abide thou in those things that thou hast learned, and in which thou art confirmed; for thou knowest from whom thou hast learned:
15 and that from thy childhood thou hast learned the holy writings, which are able to make thee wise to salvation, through faith which is in Jeshu Meshiha.
16 FOR all scripture which from the Spirit is written, is profitable for doctrine, and for rebuke, and for correction, and for instruction which is in righteousness:
17 that the man of God may be perfect unto every good work, and completed.
