But mark this: There will be horrendous times

                    In the last days, for people will love only

                    Themselves and love their money; they’ll be proud


And boastful, troublemakers, disobedient

                    As to their parents, unappreciative,

                    Unholy, loveless, unforgiving, sneering,


Having no self-control, harsh, thoroughly

                    Bad, treacherous and rash, conceited, lovers

                    Of pleasure rather than of God– they will


Look like they’re godly but they will deny

                    God’s power. Don’t have anything to do

                    With them, for they’re the kind who worm their way


Into some homes and gain control of weak-

                    Willed women, who are loaded down with sins

                    And swayed by every wrong desire, who ever


Learn but who never understand the truth.

                    Jannes and Jambres fought with Moses; so

                    Too do these men oppose the truth–these men


Of lowly minds, who are rejected by

                    The faith, and who will not get very far

                    Because their folly will be clear to all.


You, though, know all about my teaching and

                    My way of life, my purpose, faith and patience,

                    My love, endurance, persecutions and


Sufferings–all the kinds of things that happened

                    To me in Antioch, Iconium

                    And Lystra, persecutions I endured,


But God delivered me from all of them.

                    Yes, those who want to live a godly life

                    In Jesus Christ will suffer at the hands


Of those who hate him, while bad men and false

                    Teachers will go from bad to worse, deceiving

                    And being tricked themselves. But as for you,


Continue in what you have learned and what

                    You know is true, because you the ones

                    You learned it from, and how from infancy


You’ve known the holy Scriptures, which are able

                    To make you wise for your salvation through

                    Faith in Christ Jesus. Every Scripture is


God-breathed and good to teach, rebuke, correct,

                    And train in righteousness, so that the man

                    Of God may be prepared with perfect vision


And be equipped to work for everyone.

Extra money
