[2 Timothy 1]
1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus, through the will of God, -- according to the promise of life in Christ Jesus; --
1:2 Unto Timothy, my beloved child: Favour, mercy, peace, from God our Father, and Christ Jesus our Lord.
1:3 Grateful, am I, unto God, -- unto whom I am rendering divine service from my progenitors in a pure conscience, that, incessant, hold I the remembrance, concerning thee, in my supplications; day and night,
1:4 longing to see thee, being mindful of thy tears, -- in order that, with joy, I may be filled:
1:5 A reminder, having received, of the unfeigned faith, that is in thee, -- such, as dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and in thy mother Eunice, -- I am persuaded, moreover, that [it dwelleth], in thee also.
1:6 For which cause, I put thee in remembrance, to be stirring up God's gift of favour, which is in thee through means of the laying on of my hands;
1:7 For God hath not given us a spirit of cowardice, but of power, and love, and correction.
1:8 Be not thou, therefore, put to shame -- with regard to the witness of our Lord, nor with regard to me his prisoner; but suffer hardship together with the glad-message according to the power of God, --
1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to the peculiar purpose and favour -- which was given to us in Christ Jesus before age-during times,
1:10 But hath now been made manifest through means of the forthshining of our Saviour Christ Jesus, -- Who, indeed, hath abolished death, and hath thrown light upon life and incorruptibility, through means of the glad-message:
1:11 Whereunto, I, have been appointed herald and apostle and teacher;
1:12 For which cause, these things also, am I suffering; nevertheless I am not being put to shame, for I know him whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is, able, to guard, that which I have entrusted, [to him] unto, that, day.
1:13 An outline, have thou, of healthful discourses which from me thou hast heard -- with the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus:
1:14 The noble thing entrusted [to thee], do thou guard, through means of the Holy Spirit which dwelleth within us.
1:15 Thou knowest this -- that all they who are in Asia have turned away from me, -- of whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes.
1:16 The Lord grant mercy unto the house, of Onesiphorus, in that, ofttimes, hath he refreshed me, and, as regardeth my chain, hath not been put to shame,
1:17 But, happening to be in Rome, he diligently sought out and found me, --
1:18 The Lord grant him to find mercy from [the] Lord in, that, day; -- and, how many times, in Ephesus, he hath ministered, better art, thou, getting to know.

[2 Timothy 2]
2:1 Thou, therefore, my child, be empowering thyself in the favour that is in Christ Jesus,
2:2 And, the things which thou hast heard from me among many witnesses, the same, entrust thou unto faithful men, such as shall be, competent, to teach, others also.
2:3 Take thy part in suffering hardship, as a brave soldier of Christ Jesus: --
2:4 No one that is serving as a soldier, entangleth himself with the matters of his livelihood, that he may please him that hath summoned him to serve as a soldier;
2:5 If, moreover, any man, contend even in the games, he is not crowned, unless, lawfully, he contend;
2:6 The toiling husbandman, ought, first, of the fruits, to partake:
2:7 Think, as to what I am speaking; for the Lord will give thee discernment in all things.
2:8 Keep in mind Jesus Christ -- raised from among the dead, of the seed of David, -- according to my joyful message:
2:9 In which I am suffering hardship, even unto bonds, as an evil-doer; but, the word of God, is not bound.
2:10 For this cause, am I enduring, all things, for the sake of the chosen, in order that, they also, may obtain, the salvation, which is in Christ Jesus along with glory age-abiding.
2:11 Faithful, the saying -- for, If we have died together, we shall also live together,
2:12 If we endure, we shall also reign together; If we shall deny, he also, will deny us,
2:13 If we are faithless, he, faithful, abideth, -- for, deny himself, he cannot!
2:14 Of these things, be putting [them] in remembrance, adjuring [them] before God not to be waging word-battles, -- useful, for nothing, occasioning a subversion of them that hearken.
2:15 Give diligence, thyself, approved, to present unto God, -- a workman not to be put to shame, skillfully handling the word of truth.
2:16 But, the profane pratings, shun; for, unto more ungodliness, will they force themselves on;
2:17 And, their discourse, as a gangrene, will eat its way; -- of whom are Hymenaeus and Philetus,
2:18 Men who, concerning the truth, have erred, affirming, a resurrection, already, to have taken place, and are overthrowing the faith, of some.
2:19 Howbeit, the firm foundation of God, standeth, having this seal -- The Lord hath acknowledged them who are his, and, Let every one that nameth the name of the Lord stand aloof from unrighteousness.
2:20 But, in a great house, there are not only gold and silver vessels, but, also wooden and earthen: and, some, indeed, for honour, while, some, are for dishonour:
2:21 If, therefore, anyone will, for pureness, sever himself from these, he shall be a vessel for honour, hallowed, meet for the Master's use, for every good work, prepared.
2:22 But, from the youthful covetings, flee! and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, along with them who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.
2:23 But, from the foolish and undisciplined questionings, excuse thyself, knowing that they gender strifes;
2:24 And, a servant of the Lord, ought not to strive, but to be, gentle, towards all, apt in teaching, ready to endure malice, --
2:25 In meekness, bringing under discipline them that oppose themselves, lest at any time God should give them repentance unto a personal knowledge of truth,
2:26 And they should wake up to sobriety out of, the adversary's, snare, -- though they have been taken alive by him for, that one's, will.

[2 Timothy 3]
3:1 But, of this, be taking note -- that, in last days, there will set in perilous seasons;
3:2 For men will be -- fond of themselves, fond of money, ostentatious, arrogant, defamers, to parents, unyielding, unthankful, unkind,
3:3 without natural affection, accepting no truce, given to intrigue, without self-control, uncivilized, unfriendly to good men,
3:4 traitors, reckless, beclouded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God,
3:5 having a form of godliness, but, the power thereof, denying! and, from these, turn away;
3:6 For, of these, are they who enter into the houses, and captivate silly women, [women] laden with sins, led on by manifold covetings,
3:7 Ever learning and never, unto a personal knowledge of truth, able to come;
3:8 Moreover, like as, Jannes and Jambres, withstood Moses, so, these men also, withstand the truth, -- men utterly corrupted in their mind, disapproved concerning their faith;
3:9 But they shall not force their way further, for, their folly, shall be, fully evident, unto all, -- as also, that of those men, became.
3:10 But, thou, hast closely studied -- my teaching, manner of life, purpose, faith, long-suffering, love, endurance,
3:11 persecutions, sufferings, what manner of things, befell me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra, what manner of persecutions, I endured, -- and, out of all, the Lord, rescued me; --
3:12 Yea and, all who are determined to live in a godly manner in Christ Jesus, will be persecuted;
3:13 Whereas, wicked men and howling impostors, will force their way to the worse, deceiving and being deceived.
3:14 But, thou, -- abide in the things which thou hast learned, and been entrusted with, knowing, from whom, thou hast learned [them], --
3:15 And that, from a babe, those sacred letters, thou hast known which are able to make thee wise unto salvation, through the faith which is in Christ Jesus:
3:16 Every scripture, [is] God-breathed, and profitable -- unto teaching, unto conviction, unto correction, unto the discipline that is in righteousness, --
3:17 In order that, ready, may be the man, of God, unto every good work, being well-prepared.

[2 Timothy 4]
4:1 I adjure [thee] before God, and Christ Jesus -- Who is about to be judging living and dead, -- both as to his forthshining and his kingdom,
4:2 Proclaim the word, take thy position -- in season, out of season, -- convince, rebuke, encourage, -- with all long-suffering and teaching.
4:3 For there will be a season -- when, the healthful teaching, they will not endure, but, according to their own covetings, will, unto themselves, heap up teachers, because they have an itching ear,
4:4 And, from the truth, indeed, their ear, will they turn away, while, unto stories, they will turn themselves aside.
4:5 But, thou, -- be sober in all things, suffer hardship, do, the work, of an evangelist, thy ministry, completely fulfill;
4:6 For, I, already, am being poured out as a drink-offering, and, the season of my release, is at hand, --
4:7 The noble contest, have I contested, the race, have I finished, the faith, have I kept:
4:8 Henceforth, lieth by for me -- the crown, of righteousness, which the Lord will render unto me in that, day, -- The righteous judge, -- Ye, not alone unto me, but unto all them also who have loved his forthshining.
4:9 Give diligence to come unto me speedily,
4:10 For, Demas, hath forsaken me, having loved the present age, and hath journeyed unto Thessalonica; Crescens unto Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia:
4:11 Luke, alone is with me. Receiving, Mark, back, bring him with thyself, for he is very useful to me for ministering;
4:12 and, Tychicus, have I sent unto Ephesus.
4:13 The cloak that I left in Troas, with Carpus, when thou comest, bring; and the scrolls, especially, the parchments.
4:14 Alexander the coppersmith, of much baseness towards me, hath given proof, -- the Lord will render unto him according to his works. --
4:15 Of whom, be, thou also, on thy guard, for he hath greatly withstood our words.
4:16 In my first defence, no man, came in to help me, but, all, forsook me, -- unto them, may it not be reckoned! --
4:17 But, the Lord, stood by me, and empowered me, in order that, through me, the proclamation, might be fully made, and, all the nations, might hear; and I was delivered out of the mouth of a lion: --
4:18 The Lord will rescue me from every wicked work, and will bring me safe into his heavenly kingdom: unto whom be the glory, unto the ages of ages. Amen.
4:19 Salute Prisca and Aquila and the house of Onesiphorus.
4:20 Erastus, remained in Corinth; but, Trophimus, I left at Miletus, sick.
4:21 Give diligence to come, before winter. There salute thee -- Eubulus, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and [all] the brethren.
4:22 The Lord, be with thy spirit. Favour, be with you.
