2 Timothy 3

King James Version
Godlessness in the Last Days
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.
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.

Paulís Charge to Timothy
10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.1

Testimonials and Comments



Who was Timothy?

Timothy, from the Greek name Timotheos (pronounced tee-moth-eh-us), meaning honoring God, or dear to God, was a trustworthy young disciple often closely associated with Paul.
Timothy was from Lystra (Acts 16:1) in Asia Minor, today in Turkey. His mother, Eunice, and grandmother, Lois, were Jews, and were noted for their sincere faithfulness to God (2 Timothy 1:5). Nothing is written of his father, except that he was a Greek (Acts 16:1).
Timothy is first mentioned during Paul's second visit to Lystra (Acts 16:1-2), where he was apparently converted during Paul's earlier visit there (1 Timothy 1:2, 2 Timothy 3:11). Paul certainly thought highly of him, calling him "my true son in the faith" (1 Timothy 1:2).
After Timothy received his calling as a servant (what the word minister literally means) "through a direct prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you" (1 Timothy 4:14), he journeyed with Paul through Phrygia, Galatia, and Mysia, as well as Troas and Philippi and Berea (Acts 17:1-14). He later joined Paul in Athens, and was sent by him with Silas on a mission to Thessalonica (Acts 17:15, 1 Thessalonians 3:2), and later was with Paul at Corinth (1 Thessalonians 1:1, 2 Thessalonians 1:1), and later still at Ephesus (Acts 19:22), where he was sent to Macedonia. He accompanied Paul afterwards to Asia (Acts 20:4).
After Paul was a prisoner at Rome, Timothy joined him (Philippians 1:1), where it seems he may also have been imprisoned (Hebrews 13:23). During Paul's second imprisonment, he wrote to Timothy and asked him to bring his cloak and parchments that had been left at Troas. (2 Timothy 4:13)
According to one tradition, after Paul was killed, Timothy settled mainly in Ephesus, where, after more years of faithful witness, he too was martyred.
