2nd Tim. 1:1 Paul,1 an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,

2nd Tim. 1:2 to Timothy, my dearly beloved son: grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

2nd Tim. 1:3 I thank God, who I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without stopping I have remembrance of you in my prayers night and day;

2nd Tim. 1:4 greatly desiring to see you, being mindful of your tears, that I may be filled with joy;

2nd Tim. 1:5 when I call to remembrance the genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice; and I am convinced that in you also.

2nd Tim. 1:6 Therefore I put you in remembrance that you stir up the gift of God, which is in you by the laying on of my hands.

2nd Tim. 1:7 For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

2nd Tim. 1:8 Therefore be not ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be you partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

2nd Tim. 1:9 who has 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 measured time began,

2nd Tim. 1:10 but is now made apparent through the manifestation of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished the death, and has brought the life and immortality to light through the gospel:

2nd Tim. 1:11 to which I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the nations.

2nd Tim. 1:12 For which reason I also suffer these things: nevertheless, I am not ashamed: for I know who I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him until that day.

2nd Tim. 1:13 Hold fast the pattern of healthy words, which you have heard by me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

2nd Tim. 1:14 That good deposit entrusted to you, guard through the Holy Spirit who is at home in us.

2nd Tim. 1:15 This you know that all they which are in Asia turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

2nd Tim. 1:16 The Lord give mercy to the house of Onesiphorus; for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain:

2nd Tim. 1:17 But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me.

2nd Tim. 1:18 The Lord grant to him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he served in Ephesus, you know very well.
