All Scripture Is Breathed Out by God

2 Timothy 3

10 p You, however, have followed my teaching, my conduct, my aim in life, my faith, my patience, my love, my steadfastness, 11 my persecutions and sufferings that happened to me q at Antioch, r at Iconium, and s at Lystra - which persecutions I endured; yet t from them all u the Lord rescued me. 12 Indeed, all who desire to v live a godly life in Christ Jesus w will be persecuted, 13 while x evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and y being deceived. 14 But as for you, z continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom 1 you learned it 15 and how a from childhood you have been acquainted with b the sacred writings, c which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 d All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that e the man of God 2 may be competent, f equipped g for every good work.
