2 Timothy 2
2 Timothy 2:1
You therefore, my child, be strengthened in the grace that is in Messiah Yeshua.
2 Timothy 2:2
The things which you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.
2 Timothy 2:3
You therefore must endure hardship, as a good soldier of Messiah Yeshua.
2 Timothy 2:4
No soldier on duty entangles himself in the affairs of life, that he may please him who enrolled him as a soldier.
2 Timothy 2:5
Also, if anyone competes in athletics, he isnt crowned unless he has competed by the rules.
2 Timothy 2:6
The farmers who labor must be the first to get a share of the crops.
2 Timothy 2:7
Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.
2 Timothy 2:8
Remember Yeshua the Messiah, risen from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my Good News,
2 Timothy 2:9
in which I suffer hardship to the point of chains as a criminal. But Gods word isnt chained.
2 Timothy 2:10
Therefore I endure all things for the chosen ones sake, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Messiah Yeshua with eternal glory.
2 Timothy 2:11
This saying is faithful:
For if we died with him,
we will also live with him.
2 Timothy 2:12
If we endure,
we will also reign with him.
If we deny him,
he also will deny us.
2 Timothy 2:13
If we are faithless,
he remains faithful.
He cant deny himself.
2 Timothy 2:14
Remind them of these things, charging them in the sight of the Lord, that they dont argue about words, to no profit, to the subverting of those who hear.
2 Timothy 2:15
Give diligence to present yourself approved by God, a workman who doesnt need to be ashamed, properly handling the Word of Truth.
2 Timothy 2:16
But shun empty chatter, for it will go further in ungodliness,
2 Timothy 2:17
and those words will consume like gangrene, of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
2 Timothy 2:18
men who have erred concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past, and overthrowing the faith of some.
2 Timothy 2:19
However Gods firm foundation stands, having this seal, The Lord knows those who are his, and, Let every one who names the name of the Lord depart from unrighteousness.
2 Timothy 2:20
Now in a large house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of clay. Some are for honor, and some for dishonor.
2 Timothy 2:21
If anyone therefore purges himself from these, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, and suitable for the masters use, prepared for every good work.
2 Timothy 2:22
Flee from youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
2 Timothy 2:23
But refuse foolish and ignorant questionings, knowing that they generate strife.
2 Timothy 2:24
The Lords servant must not quarrel, but be gentle towards all, able to teach, patient,
2 Timothy 2:25
in gentleness correcting those who oppose him: perhaps God may give them repentance leading to a full knowledge of the truth,
2 Timothy 2:26
and they may recover themselves out of the devils snare, having been taken captive by him to his will.
