2nd Timothy Chapter 2
2:1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ
2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the
same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others
2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
2:4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this
life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
2:5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned,
except he strive lawfully.
2:6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
2:7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all
2:8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the
dead according to my gospel:
2:9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the
word of God is not bound.
2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may
also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
2:11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also
live with him:
2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also
will deny us:
2:13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
2:14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the
Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the
subverting of the hearers.
2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not
to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2:16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto
2:17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and
2:18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection
is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal,
The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the
name of Christ depart from iniquity.
2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of
silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to
2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel
unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared
unto every good work.
2:22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity,
peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
2:23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do
2:24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all
men, apt to teach, patient,
2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God
peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the
2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil,
who are taken captive by him at his will.
