2 Timothy 4
2 Timothy 4:1
I command you therefore before God and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who will judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his Kingdom:
2 Timothy 4:2
proclaim the word; be urgent in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with all patience and teaching.
2 Timothy 4:3
For the time will come when they will not listen to the sound doctrine, but, having itching ears, will heap up for themselves teachers after their own lusts;
2 Timothy 4:4
and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside to fables.
2 Timothy 4:5
But you be sober in all things, suffer hardship, do the work of an evangelist, and fulfill your ministry.
2 Timothy 4:6
For I am already being offered, and the time of my departure has come.
2 Timothy 4:7
I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:8
From now on, there is stored up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that day; and not to me only, but also to all those who have loved his appearing.
2 Timothy 4:9
Be diligent to come to me soon,
2 Timothy 4:10
for Demas left me, having loved this present world, and went to Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, and Titus to Dalmatia.
2 Timothy 4:11
Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for service.
2 Timothy 4:12
But I sent Tychicus to Ephesus.
2 Timothy 4:13
Bring the cloak that I left at Troas with Carpus when you come, and the books, especially the parchments.
2 Timothy 4:14
Alexander, the coppersmith, did much evil to me. The Lord will repay him according to his works,
2 Timothy 4:15
of whom you also must beware; for he greatly opposed our words.
2 Timothy 4:16
At my first defense, no one came to help me, but all left me. May it not be held against them.
2 Timothy 4:17
But the Lord stood by me, and strengthened me, that through me the message might be fully proclaimed, and that all the Gentiles might hear; and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.
2 Timothy 4:18
And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me for his heavenly Kingdom; to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
2 Timothy 4:19
Greet Prisca and Aquila, and the house of Onesiphorus.
2 Timothy 4:20
Erastus remained at Corinth, but I left Trophimus at Miletus sick.
2 Timothy 4:21
Be diligent to come before winter. Eubulus salutes you, as do Pudens, Linus, Claudia, and all the brothers.
2 Timothy 4:22
The Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.
