2 Timothy 1
2 Timothy 1:1
Paul, an emissary of Yeshua the Messiah through the will of God, according to the promise of the life which is in Messiah Yeshua,
2 Timothy 1:2
to Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Messiah Yeshua our Lord.
2 Timothy 1:3
I thank God, whom I serve as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. How unceasing is my memory of you in my petitions, night and day
2 Timothy 1:4
longing to see you, remembering your tears, that I may be filled with joy;
2 Timothy 1:5
having been reminded of the sincere faith that is in you; which lived first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, in you also.
2 Timothy 1:6
For this cause, I remind you that you should stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
2 Timothy 1:7
For God didnt give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.
2 Timothy 1:8
Therefore dont be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner; but endure hardship for the Good News according to the power of God,
2 Timothy 1:9
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 Messiah Yeshua before times eternal,
2 Timothy 1:10
but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior, Messiah Yeshua, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the Good News.
2 Timothy 1:11
For this, I was appointed as a proclaimer, an emissary, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
2 Timothy 1:12
For this cause I also suffer these things.
Yet I am not ashamed, for I know him whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him against that day.
2 Timothy 1:13
Hold the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which is in Messiah Yeshua.
2 Timothy 1:14
That good thing which was committed to you, guard through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.
2 Timothy 1:15
This you know, that all who are in Asia turned away from me; of whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes.
2 Timothy 1:16
May the Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain,
2 Timothy 1:17
but when he was in Rome, he sought me diligently, and found me
2 Timothy 1:18
(the Lord grant to him to find the Lords mercy in that day); and in how many things he served at Ephesus, you know very well.
