Chapter 4

2nd Tim. 4:1 I charge you therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who is about to be judging the living and the dead at His full manifestation and His kingdom;

2nd Tim. 4:2 preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and teaching.

2nd Tim. 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound teaching; but after their own lusts will they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

2nd Tim. 4:4 and they will turn away their ears from the reality, and will be turned to fables.

2nd Tim. 4:5 But watch you in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of your ministry.

2nd Tim. 4:6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

2nd Tim. 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished my race, I have kept the faith:

2nd Tim. 4:8 After this there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, who the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me at that day: and not to me only, but to all them also that love His full manifestation.

2nd Tim. 4:9 Be diligent to come to me soon:

2nd Tim. 4:10 for Demas has deserted me, loving this present age, and is departed to Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.

2nd Tim. 4:11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark and bring him with you: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.

2nd Tim. 4:12 And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.

2nd Tim. 4:13 The cloak that I left at Troas with Carpus, when you come, bring with you, and the books, but especially the parchments.

2nd Tim. 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord will repay him according to his works:

2nd Tim. 4:15 of whom be on guard also; for he has greatly resisted our words.

2nd Tim. 4:16 At my first defense no man stood together with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not be counted against them.

2nd Tim. 4:17 Nonetheless the Lord stood with me, and inwardly strengthened me; that through me the preaching might be thoroughly fulfilled, and that all the nations might hear: and I was rescued out of the lion’s mouth.

2nd Tim. 4:18 For the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and will preserve me to His heavenly kingdom: to Whom be the glory for this age and the New Covenant Age. Amen!

2nd Tim. 4:19 Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus.

2nd Tim. 4:20 Erastus stayed at Corinth: but Trophimus I left at Miletus sick.

2nd Tim. 4:21 Do your best to come before winter. Eubulus greets you, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brothers.

2nd Tim. 4:22 The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen!
