2 Timothy 2

CHAPTER 2

Endure Hardship

You then, my child, be empowered in the favor, in the one in Christ Jesus! And the things you heard from me through many witnesses, these things place unto trustworthy men, ones who will be fit also [2others 1to teach]! You then suffer hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ! No one soldiering entangles himself in the [2existence 1matters of]; that [2the 3one recruiting him 1he should have pleased]. And if also anyone should fight, he is not crowned if [2not 4lawfully 1he should 3fight]. The [3tire by labor 1farmer 2must] before first [2the 3fruits 1sharing]. Comprehend what I say! [2may 5give 1for 6to you 3the 4Lord] understanding in all things. Remember Jesus Christ being raised from the dead! from the seed of David, according to my good news, in which I suffer hardship unto bonds as an evildoer; but the word of God is not bound. 10 Because of this [2all things 1I endure] on account of the chosen, that also they [2deliverance 1should attain], of the one in Christ Jesus with [2glory 1eternal]. 11 Trustworthy is the word, For if we died together, also we shall live together; 12 if we endure, also we shall reign together; if we deny, that one also will deny us; 13 if we disbelieve, that one is sure to abide; to deny himself he is not able. 14 These things be reminded! testifying before the Lord not to argue over words, for no profit unto the undoing of the ones hearing. 15 Hurry [2yourself 3unadulterated 1to present] to God! a worker unashamed, cutting straight the word of truth. 16 And the profane idle talk stand from! [2unto 3more 1for] they will progress in impious deeds, 17 and their word as a gangrenous pasture holds forth; whom is Hymeneus and Philetus; 18 who concerning the truth miss the aim, saying, The resurrection already has taken place; and are upsetting the belief of some. 19  However [4solid 1the foundation 2of God 3stands], having this seal, The Lord knows the ones being his, and, Let [6abstain 7from 8iniquity 1every one 2naming 3the 4name 5of Christ]! 20 [2in 3a great 1But] house not only are there utensils of gold and silver, but also wooden and earthenware, and some for honor, but others for dishonor. 21 If then one should have cleared himself from these, he shall be a utensil for honor, having been sanctified and useful to the master, [2for 3every 5work 4good 1having been prepared]. 22 But the youthful desires flee from, and pursue righteousness, belief, love, peace with the ones calling upon the Lord out of a clean heart! 23 But the moronish and uninstructed inquiries ask pardon from! knowing that they engender fights. 24 And a bondman of the Lord must not quarrel; but be calm to all, qualified for teaching, enduring evil, 25 in gentleness correcting the ones being in opposition; lest at any time [2should give 3to them 1God] a change of heart to full knowledge of truth; 26 and they should recover from out of the [2of the 3devil 1snare], having been taken alive by him for that ones's will.
