2 Timothy 4 ©
1 Paul giveth Timothy a solemn charge to do his duty with all care and diligence; 6 certifieth him of his approaching end, and of the glorious prospect he had in view. 9 He desireth him to hasten his coming, and to bring Mark with him, and certain other things: 14 warneth him to beware of Alexander: 16 informeth him what had befallen him at his first apology: 19 and concludeth with salutations, and a benediction.
I aCHARGE thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, bwho shall judge the *quick and the dead at chis appearing and his kingdom;
Henceforth there ois laid up for me pa crown of righteousness, which the Lord, qthe righteous judge, shall give me at rthat day: and not to me only, sbut unto all them also that love his appearing.
The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the *parchments.
cOf whom *be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood 2our words.
At my first danswer eno man stood with me, but all men forsook me: fI pray God that it may not be laid to their charge.
gNotwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; hthat by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and iI was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
jAnd the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and kwill preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: lto whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Salute mPrisca and Aquila, and nthe household of Onesiphorus.
qDo thy diligence to come before winter. rEubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren.
