Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold,
King James Bible
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
American Standard Version
And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the love of the many shall wax cold.
Young's Literal Translation
and because of the abounding of the lawlessness, the love of the many shall become cold;
Matthew 24:12 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The love of many shall wax cold - By reason of these trials and persecutions from without, and those apostasies and false prophets from within, the love of many to Christ and his doctrine, and to one another, shall grow cold. Some openly deserting the faith, as Matthew 24:10; others corrupting it, as Matthew 24:11; and others growing indifferent about it, Matthew 24:12. Even at this early period there seems to have been a very considerable defection in several Christian Churches; see Galatians 3:1-4; 2 Thessalonians 3:1, etc.; 2 Timothy 1:15.
