Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:7 - always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:8 - Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:14 - But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it,

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:15 - and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:16 - All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 3:17 - so that the servant of God[fn] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
