Among them are (D)Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 who have swerved from the truth, (E)saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some. 19 But God's firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: (F)“The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone (G)who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.”
