2To f  Timothy, my beloved
Or child
h  son: i  Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

3 j  I thank God, whom I k  serve with a l  clear conscience
Lit from my forefathers
the way my forefathers did, n  as I constantly remember you in my
Or petitions
prayers night and day,
4 p  longing to see you, q  even as I recall your tears, so that I may be filled with joy. 5
Lit Receiving remembrance of
For I am mindful of the s  sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and t  your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well.
6For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh u  the gift of God which is in you through v  the laying on of my hands. 7For God has not given us a w  spirit of
Or cowardice
timidity, but of power and love and
Or sound judgment

8Therefore z  do not be ashamed of the aa  testimony of our Lord or of me ab  His prisoner, but join with me in ac  suffering for the ad  gospel according to the power of God, 9who has ae  saved us and af  called us with a holy ag  calling, ah  not according to our works, but according to His own ai  purpose and grace which was granted us in aj  Christ Jesus from ak  all eternity, 10but al  now has been revealed by the am  appearing of our Savior an  Christ Jesus, who ao  abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 ap  for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher. 12For this reason I also suffer these things, but aq  I am not ashamed; for I know ar  whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to as  guard what I have entrusted to Him
Or for
until au  that day.
Or Hold the example
aw  Retain the ax  standard of ay  sound words az  which you have heard from me, in the ba  faith and love which are in bb  Christ Jesus.
14Guard, through the Holy Spirit who bc  dwells in us, the
Lit good deposit
be  treasure which has been entrusted to you.

15You are aware of the fact that all who are in
I.e. the province of Asia
bg  Asia bh  turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes.
16The Lord grant mercy to bi  the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and bj  was not ashamed of my
Lit chain
bl  chains;
17but when he was in Rome, he eagerly searched for me and found me— 18the Lord grant to him to find mercy from the Lord on bm  that dayand you know very well what services he rendered at bn  Ephesus.
