2 Timothy Chapter 2The Holy Bible, King James Version
2:1Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2:2And 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 also.
2:3Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
2:4No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
2:5And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
2:6The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
2:7Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
2:8Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:
2:9Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.
2:10Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
2:11It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
2:12If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
2:13If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
2:14Of 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.
2:15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2:16But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
2:17And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
2:18Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
2:19Nevertheless 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.
2:20But 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.
2:21If 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.
2:22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
2:23But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
2:24And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
2:25In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
2:26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
