2 Timothy 4

2 Timothy 4:1  
I command you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his Kingdom:

2 Timothy 4:2  
preach 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 away 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, the crown of righteousness is stored up for me, 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 deeds.

2 Timothy 4:15  
Beware of him, 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. So 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 him 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 Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.
