(A)For the time will come when they will not endure (B)sound doctrine, (C)but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and (D)be turned aside to fables.

Avoid Divisive Persons

17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those (A)who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and (B)avoid them. 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord [a]Jesus Christ, but (C)their own belly, and (D)by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. 19 For (E)your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be (F)wise in what is good, and [b]simple concerning evil. 20 And (G)the God of peace (H)will crush Satan under your feet shortly.

(I)The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Only One Gospel

I marvel that you are turning away so soon (A)from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, (B)which is not another; but there are some (C)who trouble you and want to (D)pervert[a] the gospel of Christ. But even if (E)we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be [b]accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you (F)than what you have received, let him be accursed.
