King James Version2 Timothy1

2 Timothy

1 Paul, an apos­tle of Je­sus Christ by the will of God, ac­cord­ing to the promise of life which is in Christ Je­sus, 2 To Tim­o­thy, my dear­ly beloved son: Grace, mer­cy, and peace, from God the Fa­ther and Christ Je­sus our Lord. 3 I thank God, whom I serve from my fore­fa­thers with pure con­science, that with­out ceas­ing I have re­mem­brance of thee in my prayers night and day; 4 Great­ly de­sir­ing to see thee, be­ing mind­ful of thy tears, that I may be filled with joy; 5 When I call to re­mem­brance the un­feigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grand­moth­er Lois, and thy moth­er Eu­nice; and I am per­suad­ed that in thee al­so. 6 Where­fore I put thee in re­mem­brance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. 7 For God hath not giv­en us the spir­it of fear; but of pow­er, and of love, and of a sound mind. 8 Be not thou there­fore ashamed of the tes­ti­mo­ny of our Lord, nor of me his pris­on­er: but be thou par­tak­er of the af­flic­tions of the gospel ac­cord­ing to the pow­er of God; 9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy call­ing, not ac­cord­ing to our works, but ac­cord­ing to his own pur­pose and grace, which was giv­en us in Christ Je­sus be­fore the world be­gan, 10 But is now made man­i­fest by the ap­pear­ing of our Saviour Je­sus Christ, who hath abol­ished death, and hath brought life and im­mor­tal­i­ty to light through the gospel: 11 Where­un­to I am ap­point­ed a preach­er, and an apos­tle, and a teach­er of the Gen­tiles. 12 For the which cause I also suf­fer these things: nev­er­the­less I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have be­lieved, and am per­suad­ed that he is able to keep that which I have com­mit­ted unto him against that day. 13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Je­sus. 14 That good thing which was com­mit­ted unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us. 15 This thou know­est, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygel­lus and Her­mo­genes. 16 The Lord give mer­cy unto the house of One­sipho­rus; for he oft re­freshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain: 17 But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very dili­gent­ly, and found me. 18 The Lord grant unto him that he may find mer­cy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he min­is­tered unto me at Eph­esus, thou know­est very well.
