10 l But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me m at Antioch, n at Iconium, o at Lystra - what persecutions I endured. And p out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and q all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 r But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must s continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known t the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 u All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, v and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for 1 instruction in righteousness, 17 w that the man of God may be complete, x thoroughly equipped for every good work.New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
