2 Timothy 3:8-9

Context
3:8 And just as Jannes and Jambres 1  opposed Moses, so these people – who have warped minds and are disqualified in the faith 2  – also oppose the truth. 3:9 But they will not go much further, 3  for their foolishness will be obvious to everyone, just like it was with Jannes and Jambres. 4 

1 sn Jannes and Jambres were the traditional names of two of Pharaoh’s magicians who opposed Moses at the time of the Exodus.

2 tn Grk “disapproved concerning the faith.”

3 tn Grk “for they will not progress any more.”

4 tn Grk “as theirs came to be,” referring to the foolishness of Jannes and Jambres. The referent of “theirs” (Jannes and Jambres) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
