Coverdale(i) 1 Bvt this shalt thou knowe, that in the last dayes shal come parelous tymes. 2 For there shalbe me which shal holde of the selues, couetous, boasters, proude, cursed speakers, dishobedient to their elders, vnthankfull, vngoostly, 3 vnkynde, truce breakers, false accusers, ryatours, fearce, despysers of them which are good, 4 traytours, heady, hye mynded, gredy vpon voluptuousnes more then the louers of God, 5 hauynge a shyne off godly lyuynge, but denyenge the power therof. And soch avoyde. 6 Of this sorte are they which rune fro house to house, & brynge in to bondage weme lade wt synne: which (wemen) are led with dyuerse lustes, 7 euer lernynge, and are neuer able to come vnto the knowlege of the trueth. 8 But like as Iamnes and Iabres withstode Moses, euen so do these also resist the trueth: me they are of corrupte myndes, and lewde as cocernynge ye faith: 9 but they shal preuayle no longer. For their folishnes shalbe manifest vnto all men, as theirs was. 10 But thou hast sene the experience of my doctryne, my fasshion of lyuynge, my purpose, my faith, my longsufferynge, my loue, my pacience, 11 my persecucions, my affliccions, which happened vnto me at Antioche, at Iconium, at Lystra, which persecucions I suffred paciently, and from the all the LORDE delyuered me. 12 Yee and all they that wil lyue godly in Christ Iesu, must suffre persecucion. 13 But the euell men and disceauers shal waxe worse and worse, disceauynge and beynge disceaued. 14 But contynue thou in the thinges that thou hast lerned, which also were comytted vnto the, seynge thou knowest of who thou hast learned them, 15 And for so moch as thou hast knowne holy scripture of a childe, the same is able to make ye wyse vnto saluacion thorow the faith in Christ Iesu. 16 For all scripture geue by inspiracion of God, is profitable to teach, to improue, to amende, and to instructe in righteousnes, 17 that a man off God maye be perfecte, and prepared vnto all good workes.
