1 Thou therefore, my son, abe strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, bthe same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 cNo man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things. 8 Remember that Jesus Christ dof the seed of David ewas raised from the dead faccording to my gospel: 9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound. 10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, gthat they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 11 hIt is a faithful saying: For iif we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: 12 kIf we suffer, we shall also reign with him: jif we deny him, he also will deny us: 13 lIf we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: mhe cannot deny himself. 14 Of these things put them in remembrance, ncharging them before the Lord othat they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But pshun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is qHymenaeus and Philetus; 18 Who concerning the truth have erred, rsaying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
19 Nevertheless sthe foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord tknoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20 But 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. 21 If 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. 22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. 24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
