2 Timothy 1

1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, through the will of God, according to the promise of the life which is in Christ Jesus. 2 To Timothy, my beloved child: grace, mercy, peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 3 I have gratitude to God, to whom I am giving-divine service from my ancestors in a clean conscience, as I have constant remembrance concerning you in my supplications, night and day. 4 I am longing to see you, having been reminded of your tears, in order that I may be filled from your joy; 5 receiving a reminder of the non-pretended faith, which is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I also have confidence it is in you. 6 Because of which case, I am reminding you to rekindle the gift* of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For* God did not give to us a spirit of cowardice, but of power and love* and self-discipline. 8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor me, his prisoner, but suffer-hardship together with the good-news according to the power of God, 9 who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before times everlasting. 10 But now it was manifested through the appearing of our Savior, Jesus Christ, who indeed did-away-with death and illuminated both life and incorruption through the good-news, 11 to which I was appointed* a preacher and an apostle and a teacher of the Gentiles. 12 Because of which case, I also am suffering these things too, but I am not ashamed; for* I know the one whom I have believed and I have confidence that he is able to guard my deposit consigned to him *for that day. 13 Hold to the pattern of sound* words which you heard from me, in faith and love* in Christ Jesus. 14 Guard the good deposit consigned to you through the Holy Spirit who is dwelling in us. 15 You know this, that all who are in Asia turned away from me; of whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 May the Lord give mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, because he often refreshed me and is not ashamed of my chain; 17 but, after he happened to be in Rome, he diligently sought me and found me, 18 (may the Lord give to him to find mercy from the Lord in that day), and how-much he served me in Ephesus, you know this quite-well.
