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