2 Timothy 3:14-17
14But abide thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15and that from a babe thou hast known the sacred writings which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness: 17that the man of God may be complete, furnished completely unto every good work.
