2 Timothy 3Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
Know That Difficult Times Will Come, And Turn Away From The Ungodly
3 But know this— that during the last days difficult[a] times will be present. 2 For the people will be self-lovers, money-lovers, boasters, proud, blasphemous, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unaffectionate, unreconcilable[b], slanderous, without-self-control, untamed[c], not-lovers-of-good, 4 traitors, reckless, having become conceited, pleasure-lovers rather than God-lovers, 5 holding a form of godliness but having denied the power of it.

All Scripture Is God-Breathed, And Profitable For Equipping Us For Good Works
16 All[g] Scripture is God-breathed[h], and profitable for teaching, for rebuking[i], for correcting[j], for training[k] in righteousness, 17 in order that the person of God may be complete[l], having been equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:6Paul may be referring negatively to the women, weak-women, silly-women, gullible-women; or, this may be derogatory of the creepers who prey on helpless-women, vulnerable-women. The following three phrases describe the women.
