1 Thou therefore, child of me, be strong in the favor in that in Anointed Jesus;
2 and the things thou didst hear from me through many witnesses, these things entrust thou to faithful men, who competent shall be also others to teach.
3 Thou therefore endure evil as good a soldier of Jesus Anointed.
4 No one serving as a soldier involves himself with the of the life occupations, so that the one having enlisted he may please.
5 If but also may contend any one, not is crowned, if not lawfully he may have contented.
6 The toiling husbandman it behooves first of the fruits to partake.
7 Consider thou, the things I say; may give for to thee the Lord understanding in all things.
8 Do thou remember Jesus Anointed having been raised out of dead ones, from seed of David, according to the glad tidings of me;
9 in which I suffer evil even to chains, as an evil doer; but the word of the God not is chained.
10 On account of this all things I undergo on account of the chosen ones, so that also they salvation may obtain of that in Anointed Jesus, with glory agelasting.
11 True the word; if for we died with, also we shall live with;
12 if we endure patiently, also we shall reign with; if we deny also he will deny us;
13 if faithless, he faithful remains; to deny himself not he is able.
14 These things do thou put in mind, earnestly testifying in presence of the Lord, not to dispute about words, for nothing useful, to a subversion of those hearing.
15 Be thou diligent thyself approved to present to the God, a workman unashamed, cutting straight the word of the truth.
16 The but profane empty sounds do thou avoid; to more for they will proceed impiety,
17 and the word of them as a mortifying sore pasture will have; of whom is Hymenius and Philetus,
18 who concerning the truth missed the mark, saying the resurrection already to have happened, and overturn the of some faith.
19 The however firm foundation of the God stands, having the zeal this: Knew Lord the being of himself; and: Let depart from injustice every one who is naming the name of Lord.
20 In great but a house not is only vessels golden and made of silver, but also wooden and earthen; and some indeed for honor, some and for dishonor.
21 If therefore any one should well cleanse himself from these, he will be a vessel for honor, having been cleansed, and of good use to the master, for every work good having been prepared.
22 The now youthful desires flee thou; pursue thou but righteousness, faith, love, peace with those calling on the Lord out of pure a heart.
23 The but foolish and uninstructive questions do thou avoid, knowing, that they beget contests;
24 a bondman but of lord not it behooves to quarrel, but gentle to be to all, fit to teach, enduring evil,
25 in meekness admonishing those being opposed; perhaps may give to them the God a change of mind to a knowledge of truth,
26 and they may be recovered from the of the accuser snare having been taken alive by him for the of him will.
