2 Timothy 4

2 Timothy 4:1  
I give you orders, before God and Christ Jesus, who will be the judge of the living and the dead, and by his revelation and his kingdom;

2 Timothy 4:2  
Be preaching the word at all times, in every place; make protests, say sharp words, give comfort, with long waiting and teaching;

2 Timothy 4:3  
For the time will come when they will not take the true teaching; but, moved by their desires, they will get for themselves a great number of teachers for the pleasure of hearing them;

2 Timothy 4:4  
And shutting their ears to what is true, will be turned away to belief in foolish stories.

2 Timothy 4:5  
But be self-controlled in all things, do without comfort, go on preaching the good news, completing the work which has been given you to do.

2 Timothy 4:6  
For I am even now being offered, and my end is near.

2 Timothy 4:7  
I have made a good fight, I have come to the end of my journey, I have kept the faith:

2 Timothy 4:8  
From now on, the crown of righteousness is made ready for me, which the Lord, the upright judge, Will give to me at that day: and not only to me, but to all those who have had love for his revelation.

2 Timothy 4:9  
Do your best to come to me before long:

2 Timothy 4:10  
For Demas has gone away from me, for love of this present life, and has gone to Thessalonica: Crescens has gone to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.

2 Timothy 4:11  
Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and take him with you; for he is of use to me in the work.

2 Timothy 4:12  
Tychicus I sent to Ephesus.

2 Timothy 4:13  
The coat which I did not take from Troas and which is with Carpus, get when you come, and the books, specially the papers.

2 Timothy 4:14  
Alexander the copper-worker did me much wrong: the Lord will give him the reward of his works:

2 Timothy 4:15  
But be on the watch for him, for he was violent in his attacks on our teaching.

2 Timothy 4:16  
At my first meeting with my judges, no one took my part, but all went away from me. May it not be put to their account.

2 Timothy 4:17  
But the Lord was by my side and gave me strength; so that through me the news might be given out in full measure, and all the Gentiles might give ear: and I was taken out of the mouth of the lion.

2 Timothy 4:18  
The Lord will keep me safe from every evil work and will give me salvation in his kingdom in heaven: to whom be glory for ever and ever. So be it.

2 Timothy 4:19  
Give my love to Prisca and Aquila and those of the house of Onesiphorus.

2 Timothy 4:20  
Erastus was stopping at Corinth; but Trophimus, when I last saw him was at Miletus, ill.

2 Timothy 4:21  
Do your best to come before the winter. Eubulus sends you his love, and Pudens and Linus and Claudia, and all the brothers.

2 Timothy 4:22  
The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you.
