1
Hoc autem scito, quod in novissimis diebus instabunt tempora periculosa:
1
Know also this, that, in the last days, shall come dangerous times.
1
Be sure of this, that in the world’s last age there are perilous times coming.
2
erunt homines seipsos amantes, cupidi, elati, superbi, blasphemi, parentibus non obedientes, ingrati, scelesti,
2
Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked,
2
Men will be in love with self, in love with money, boastful, proud, abusive; without reverence for their parents, without gratitude, without scruple,
3
sine affectione, sine pace, criminatores, incontinentes, immites, sine benignitate,
3
Without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without kindness,
3
without love, without peace; slanderers, incontinent, strangers to pity and to kindness;
4
proditores, protervi, tumidi, et voluptatum amatores magis quam Dei:
4
Traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures more than of God:
4
treacherous, reckless, full of vain conceit, thinking rather of their pleasures than of God.
5
habentes speciem quidem pietatis, virtutem autem ejus abnegantes. Et hos devita:
5
Having an appearance indeed of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Now these avoid.
5
They will preserve all the outward form of religion, although they have long been strangers to its meaning. From these, too, turn away.
6
ex his enim sunt qui penetrant domos, et captivas ducunt mulierculas oneratas peccatis, quæ ducuntur variis desideriis:
6
For of these sort are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, who are led away with divers desires:
6
They count among their number the men that will make their way into house after house, captivating weak women whose consciences are burdened by sin; women swayed by shifting passions,
7
semper discentes, et numquam ad scientiam veritatis pervenientes.
7
Ever learning, and never attaining to the knowledge of the truth.
7
who are for ever inquiring, yet never attain to recognition of the truth.
8
Quemadmodum autem Jannes et Mambres restiterunt Moysi: ita et hi resistunt veritati, homines corrupti mente, reprobi circa fidem;
8
Now as Jannes and Mambres resisted Moses, so these also resist the truth, men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith.
8
Moses found rivals in Jannes and Mambres; just so the men I speak of set themselves up in rivalry against the truth, men whose minds are corrupt, whose faith is counterfeit;
9
sed ultra non proficient: insipientia enim eorum manifesta erit omnibus, sicut et illorum fuit.
9
But they shall proceed no farther; for their folly shall be manifest to all men, as theirs also was.
9
yet they will come to little, they will soon be detected, like those others, in their rash folly.
10
Tu autem assecutus es meam doctrinam, institutionem, propositum, fidem, longanimitatem, dilectionem, patientiam,
10
But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, patience,
10
Not such was the schooling, the guidance, thou hadst from me; in firm resolve, in faith, in patience, in love, in endurance;
11
persecutiones, passiones: qualia mihi facta sunt Antiochiæ, Iconii, et Lystris: quales persecutiones sustinui, et ex omnibus eripuit me Dominus.
11
Persecutions, afflictions: such as came upon me at Antioch, at Iconium, and at Lystra: what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord delivered me.
11
all my persecutions and suffering, such as those which befell me at Antioch, Iconium, and Lystra; what persecutions I underwent! And yet the Lord brought me through them all safely.
12
Et omnes, qui pie volunt vivere in Christo Jesu, persecutionem patientur.
12
And all that will live godly in Christ Jesus, shall suffer persecution.
12
And indeed, all those who are resolved to live a holy life in Christ Jesus will meet with persecution;
13
Mali autem homines et seductores proficient in pejus, errantes, et in errorem mittentes.
13
But evil men and seducers shall grow worse and worse: erring, and driving into error.
13
while the rogues and the mountebanks go on from bad to worse, at once impostors and dupes.
14
Tu vero permane in iis quæ didicisti, et credita sunt tibi: sciens a quo didiceris:
14
But continue thou in those things which thou hast learned, and which have been committed to thee: knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
14
It is for thee to hold fast by the doctrine handed on to thee, the charge committed to thee; thou knowest well, from whom that tradition came;
15
et quia ab infantia sacras litteras nosti, quæ te possunt instruere ad salutem, per fidem quæ est in Christo Jesu.
15
And because from thy infancy thou hast known the holy scriptures, which can instruct thee to salvation, by the faith which is in Christ Jesus.
15
thou canst remember the holy learnin thou hast been taught from childhood upwards. This will train thee up for salvation, through the faith which rests in Christ Jesus.
16
Omnis Scriptura divinitus inspirata utilis est ad docendum, ad arguendum, ad corripiendum, et erudiendum in justitia:
16
All scripture, inspired of God, is profitable to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in justice,
16
Everything in the scripture has been divinely inspired, and has its uses; to instruct us, to expose our errors, to correct our faults, to educate us in holy living;
17
ut perfectus sit homo Dei, ad omne opus bonum instructus.
17
That the man of God may be perfect, furnished to every good work.
17
so God’s servant will become a master of his craft, and each noble task that comes will find him ready for it.
