2 Timothy 2

2:1 Thou, therefore, my child, be strong in the grace that [is] in Christ Jesus, 2:2 and the things that thou didst hear from me through many witnesses, these things be committing to stedfast men, who shall be sufficient also others to teach; 2:3 thou, therefore, suffer evil as a good soldier of Jesus Christ; 2:4 no one serving as a soldier did entangle himself with the affairs of life, that him who did enlist him he may please; 2:5 and if also any one may strive, he is not crowned, except he may strive lawfully; 2:6 the labouring husbandman it behoveth first of the fruits to partake; 2:7 be considering what things I say, for the Lord give to thee understanding in all things.  2:8 Remember Jesus Christ, raised out of the dead, of the seed of David, according to my good news, 2:9 in which I suffer evil--unto bonds, as an evil-doer, but the word of God hath not been bound; 2:10 because of this all things do I endure, because of the choice ones, that they also salvation may obtain that [is] in Christ Jesus, with glory age-during. 2:11 Stedfast [is] the word: For if we died together--we also shall live together; 2:12 if we do endure together--we shall also reign together; if we deny [him] , he also shall deny us; 2:13 if we are not stedfast, he remaineth stedfast; to deny himself he is not able.  2:14 These things remind [them] of, testifying fully before the Lord--not to strive about words to nothing profitable, but to the subversion of those hearing; 2:15 be diligent to present thyself approved to God--a workman irreproachable, rightly dividing the word of the truth; 2:16 and the profane vain talkings stand aloof from, for to more impiety they will advance, 2:17 and their word as a gangrene will have pasture, of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus, 2:18 who concerning the truth did swerve, saying the rising again to have already been, and do overthrow the faith of some;  2:19 sure, nevertheless, hath the foundation of God stood, having this seal, `The Lord hath known those who are His,' and `Let him depart from unrighteousness--every one who is naming the name of Christ.' 2:20 And 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 dishonour: 2:21 if, then, any one may cleanse himself from these, he shall be a vessel to honour, sanctified and profitable to the master--to every good work having been prepared,  2:22 and the youthful lusts flee thou, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, with those calling upon the Lord out of a pure heart; 2:23 and the foolish and uninstructed questions be avoiding, having known that they beget strife, 2:24 and a servant of the Lord it behoveth not to strive, but to be gentle unto all, apt to teach, patient under evil, 2:25 in meekness instructing those opposing--if perhaps God may give to them repentance to an acknowledging of the truth, 2:26 and they may awake out of the devil's snare, having been caught by him at his will.
