2 Timothy 4

I charge thee, before God, and our Lord Jesus the Messiah, who is to judge the living and the dead, at the manifestation of his kingdom, Proclaim the word; and persist in it with diligence, in time and out of time; admonish, and rebuke, with all patience and instructiveness. For the time will come, when they will not give ear to sound teaching; but, according to their lusts, will multiply to themselves teachers, in the itching of their hearing; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and incline after fables. But be thou vigilant in all things; and endure evils, and do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill thy ministry. But I am soon to be immolated; and the time of my dissolution hath come. I have fought a good combat, I have completed my race, I have preserved my fidelity; and henceforth there is preserved for me a crown of righteousness, with which my Lord, the righteous Judge, will recompense me in that day; and not me only, but them also who love his manifestation. Exert thyself to come to me quickly. 10 For Demas hath left me; and hath loved this world and gone away to Thessalonica; Crispus to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia. 11 Luke only is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee; for he is suitable for me, for ministration. 12 And Tychicus I have sent to Ephesus. 13 And when thou comest, bring the bookcase, which I left at Troas with Carpus, and the books, but especially the roll of parchments. 14 Alexander the coppersmith showed me many ills: our Lord will reward him according to his doings. 15 And do thou also beware of him; for he is very insolent against our words. 16 At my first defence, no one was with me, but they all forsook me. Let not this be reckoned to them. 17 But my Lord stood by me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fulfilled; and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was rescued from the mouth of the lion. 18 And my Lord will rescue me from every evil work; and will give me life in his heavenly kingdom. To him be glory, for ever and ever. Amen. 19 Present a salutation to Priscilla and Aquila, and to the household of Onesiphorus. 20 Erastus hath stopped at Corinth; and Trophimus I left sick at the city of Miletus. 21 Exert thyself to come before winter. Eubulus saluteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren. 22 Our Lord Jesus the Messiah be with thy spirit. Grace be with thee. Amen.
