Paul's Second Letter to Timothy
1:1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, according to the promise of the life
which is in Christ Jesus, 1:2to Timothy, my beloved child:
Grace, mercy, and peace, from God, the Father, and Christ Jesus, our Lord.
1:3I thank God, whom I serve as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. How unceasing is my
memory of you in my petitions, night and day 1:4longing to see you, remembering your tears, that I
may be filled with joy; 1:5having been reminded of the unfeigned faith that is in you; which lived
first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, in you also. 1:6For
this cause, I remind you that you should stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying
on of my hands. 1:7For God didn't give us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and discipline.
1:8Don't be ashamed therefore of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me, his prisoner; but suffer
hardship with the gospel according to the power of God, 1:9who saved us, and called us with a holy
calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given
to us in Christ Jesus before times eternal, 1:10but has now been revealed by the appearing of our
Savior, Christ Jesus, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the
gospel. 1:11For this, I was appointed as a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. 1:12For
this cause I suffer also these things. Yet I am not ashamed, for I know him whom I have believed,
and I am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him against that day.
1:13Hold the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which is in
Christ Jesus. 1:14That good thing which was committed to you, guard through the Holy Spirit which
dwells in us. 1:15This you know, that all who are in Asia turned away from me; of whom are
Phygelus and Hermogenes. 1:16May the Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often
refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain, 1:17but when he was in Rome, he sought me
diligently, and found me 1:18(the Lord grant to him to find the Lord's mercy in that day); and in how
many things he served at Ephesus, you know very well.
