2 Timothy 1
Paul's love to Timothy, and the unfeigned faith which was in Timothy himself, his mother, and grandmother.
2 Timothy 1:1 Paul an Apostle of Iesus Christ, by the will of God, according to the promesse of life which is in Christ Iesus, 2 Timothy 1:2 To Timotheus my beloued sonne: Grace, mercie and peace from God the Father, and from Iesus Christ our Lorde. 2 Timothy 1:3 I thanke God, whom I serue from mine elders with pure conscience, that without ceasing I haue remembraunce of thee in my praiers night and day, 2 Timothy 1:4 Desiring to see thee, mindefull of thy teares, that I may be filled with ioy: 2 Timothy 1:5 When I call to remembrance the vnfained faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and in thy mother Eunice, and am assured that it dwelleth in thee also.
He is exhorted to stir up the gift of God which was in him,
2 Timothy 1:6 Wherefore, I put thee in remembrance that thou stirre vp the gift of God which is in thee, by the putting on of mine hands. 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not giuen to vs the Spirite of feare, but of power, and of loue, & of a sound minde.
to be stedfast, and patient in persecution,
2 Timothy 1:8 Be not therefore ashamed of the testimonie of our Lord, neither of me his prisoner: but be partaker of the afflictions of the Gospel, according to the power of God, 2 Timothy 1:9 Who hath saued vs, and called vs with an holy calling, not according to our workes, but according to his owne purpose and grace, which was giuen to vs through Christ Iesus before the world was, 2 Timothy 1:10 But is nowe made manifest by that appearing of our Sauiour Iesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortalitie vnto light through the Gospel. 2 Timothy 1:11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and Apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. 2 Timothy 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed: for I knowe whom I haue beleeued, and I am persuaded that he is able to keepe that which I haue committed to him against that day.
and to persist in the form and truth of that doctrine which he had learned of him.
2 Timothy 1:13 Keepe the true paterne of the wholesome wordes, which thou hast heard of me in faith and loue which is in Christ Iesus. 2 Timothy 1:14 That worthie thing, which was committed to thee, keepe through the holy Ghost, which dwelleth in vs.
Phygellus and Hermogenes, and such like, are noted, and Onesiphorus is highly commended.
2 Timothy 1:15 This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia, be turned from me: of which sort are Phygellus and Hermogenes. 2 Timothy 1:16 The Lord giue mercie vnto the house of Onesiphorus: for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chaine, 2 Timothy 1:17 But when he was at Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me. 2 Timothy 1:18 The Lord graunt vnto him, that he may finde mercie with the Lorde at that day, and in howe many things he hath ministred vnto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.
