2 Timothy 2 ©
1 Timothy is exhorted to constancy and perseverance in the discharge of his duty, as a good soldier of Christ, looking for a certain reward of his fatigues and sufferings; 15 to divide the word of truth rightly, and to shun profane and vain babblings. 17 The dangerous error of Hymenaeus and Philetus. 19 The foundation of God standeth sure. 20 Of vessels honourable and dishonourable. 22 Timothy is taught what to flee, and what to follow, and how the servant of Christ must behave toward all men.
Thou therefore eendure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
Remember that Jesus Christ lof the seed of David mwas raised from the dead according to nmy gospel:
And their word will eat as doth a 3*canker: of whom is fHymenaeus and Philetus;
gWho concerning the truth have erred, hsaying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
Nevertheless ithe foundation of God standeth 4sure, having this seal, jThe Lord knoweth them that are his. And, kLet every one that nameth the name of Christ ldepart from iniquity.
But min a great house nthere are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and oof earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
