 <<  2 Timotius 2 >> 

1So, my son, be strong in the grace that Christ Jesus gives.

2Everything that you have heard me teach in public you should in turn entrust to reliable men, who will be able to pass it on to others.

3Put up with your share of hardship as a loyal soldier in Christ's army.

4Remember: [1] That no soldier on active service gets himself entangled in business, or he will not please his commanding officer.

5[2] A man who enters an athletic contest wins no prize unless he keeps the rules laid down.

6[3] Only the man who works on the land has the right to the first share of its produce.

7Consider these three illustrations of mine and the Lord will help you to understand all that I mean.

8Remember always, as the centre of everything, Jesus Christ, a descendant of David, yet raised by God from the dead according to my gospel.

9For preaching this I am having to endure being chained in prison as if I were some sort of a criminal. But they cannot chain the Word of God, and

10I can endure all these things for the sake of those whom God is calling, so that they too may receive the salvation of Christ Jesus, and its complement of glory after the world of time.

11I rely on this saying: [If we died with him we shall also live with him:]

12[if we endure we shall also reign with him. If we deny him he will also deny us:]

13[yet if we are faithless he always remains faithful. He cannot deny his own nature.]

14Remind your people of things like this, and tell them as before God not to fight wordy battles, which help no one and may undermine the faith of those who hear them.

15For yourself, concentrate on winning God's approval, on being a workman with nothing to be ashamed of, and who knows how to use the word of truth to the best advantage.

16But steer clear of these unchristian babblings, which in practice lead further and further away from Christian living.

17For their teachings are as dangerous as bloodpoisoning to the body, and spread like sepsis from a wound. Hymenaeus and Philetus are responsible for this sort of thing, and

18they are men who are palpable traitors to the truth, for they say that the resurrection has already happened and, of course, badly upset some people's faith.

19God's solid foundation still stands, however, with this double inscription: [The Lord knows those who belong to him], and [Let every true Christian have no dealings with evil].

20In any big household there are naturally not only gold and silver vessels but wooden and earthenware utensils as well. Some are used for the highest purposes and some for the lowest.

21If a man keeps himself clean from the contaminations of evil he will be a vessel used for honourable purposes, dedicated and serviceable for the use of the master of the household, all ready, in fact, for any good purpose.

22Turn your back on the turbulent desires of youth and give your positive attention to goodness, integrity, love and peace in company with all those who approach the Lord in sincerity.

23But have nothing to do with silly and illinformed controversies which lead inevitably, as you know, to strife.

24And the Lord's servant must not be a man of strife: he must be kind to all, ready and able to teach: he must be tolerant and

25have the ability gently to correct those who oppose his message. For God may give them a different outlook, and they may come to know the truth.

26They may come to their senses and be rescued from the snare of the devil and caught by God for his purposes.
