1611 King James Bible

2 Timothy 4

He exhorteth him to do his duty with all care and diligence,

2 Timothy 4:1 I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Iesus Christ, who shall iudge the quicke and the dead at his appearing, and his kingdome: 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word, be instant in season, out of season, reprooue, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering & doctrine. 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time wil come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but after their owne lusts shall they heape to themselues teachers, hauing itching eares: 2 Timothy 4:4 And they shall turne away their eares from the trueth, and shall be turned vnto fables. 2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all things, indure afflictions, doe the worke of an Euangelist, make full proofe of thy ministery.

certifieth him of the nearness of his death,

2 Timothy 4:6 For I am now readie to bee offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 2 Timothy 4:7 I haue fought a good fight, I haue finished my course, I haue kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:8 Hencefoorth there is layde vp for me a crowne of righteousnesse, which the Lord the righteous iudge shall giue me at that day: and not to me only, but vnto them also that loue his appearing.

willeth him to come speedily unto him, and certain other things which he wrote for,

2 Timothy 4:9 Doe thy diligence to come shortly vnto me: 2 Timothy 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, hauing loued this present world, and is departed vnto Thessalonica: Crescens to Galatia, Titus vnto Dalmatia. 2 Timothy 4:11 Onely Luke is with me. Take Marke and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministerie. 2 Timothy 4:12 And Tychicus haue I sent to Ephesus. 2 Timothy 4:13 The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou commest, bring [with thee], and the books, but especially the parchments.

warneth him to beware of Alexander the smith,

2 Timothy 4:14 Alexander the Coppersmith did mee much euill, the Lord reward him according to his works. 2 Timothy 4:15 Of whom bee thou ware also, for he hath greatly withstood our words.

informeth him what had befallen him at his first answering,

2 Timothy 4:16 At my first answere no man stood with mee, but all men forsooke mee: I [pray God] that it may not bee laid to their charge. 2 Timothy 4:17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me, that by me the preaching might be fully knowen, and that all the Gentiles might heare: and I was deliuered out of the mouth of the Lyon. 2 Timothy 4:18 And the Lord shall deliuer mee from euery euill worke, and will preserue me vnto his heauenly kingdome to whom [bee] glory for euer, and euer. Amen.

and soon after he concludeth.

2 Timothy 4:19 Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the houshold of Onesiphorus. 2 Timothy 4:20 Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus haue I left at Miletum sicke. 2 Timothy 4:21 Doe thy diligence to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren. 2 Timothy 4:22 The Lord Iesus Christ bee with thy spirit. Grace [be] with you. Amen. {The second Epistle vnto Timotheus, ordeined the first Bishop of the Church of the Ephesians, was written from Rome, when Paul was brought before Nero the second time.}
