Paul a an apostle of b Christ Jesus
Lit through
d by the will of God, according to the promise of e life in Christ Jesus,

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

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,
p longing to see you, q even as I recall your tears, so that I may be filled with joy.
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.
For 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. For God has not given us a w spirit of
Or cowardice
timidity, but of power and love and
Or sound judgment

Therefore 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, who 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, 10 but 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. 12 For 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.
14 Guard, through the Holy Spirit who bc dwells in us, the
Lit good deposit
be treasure which has been entrusted to you.

15 You 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.
16 The 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;
17 but when he was in Rome, he eagerly searched for me and found me— 18 the 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.
