The Second Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy

Return to Index

Chapter 4

1

 I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 

2

 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 

3

 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 

4

 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 

5

 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 

6

 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 

7

 I have fought a good fight, I have finished [my] course, I have kept the faith: 

8

 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 

9

 Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me: 

10

 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. 

11

 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry. 

12

 And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus. 

13

 The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring [with thee], and the books, [but] especially the parchments. 

14

 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works: 

15

 Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words. 

16

 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all [men] forsook me: [I pray God] that it may not be laid to their charge. 

17

 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and [that] all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. 

18

 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve [me] unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen. 

19

 Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus. 

20

 Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have I left at Miletum sick. 

21

 Do thy diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren. 

22

 The Lord Jesus Christ [be] with thy spirit. Grace [be] with you. Amen. [The second [epistle] unto Timotheus, ordained the first bishop of the church of the Ephesians, was written from Rome, when Paul was brought before Nero the second time.] 

Titus 1
