2 Timothy 4
He exhorteth him to do his duty with all care and diligence,
2 Timothy 4:1 I testifie therfore before god and before the lorde Iesu Christ which shall iudge quicke and deed at his aperynge in his kyngdom 2 Timothy 4:2 preache the worde be fervent be it in season or out of season. Improve rebuke exhorte with all longe sufferinge and doctryne. 2 Timothy 4:3 For the tyme will come when they wyll not suffer wholsome doctryne: but after their awne lustes shall they (whose eares ytche) gett the an heepe of teachers 2 Timothy 4:4 and shall turne their eares from ye trueth and shalbe geven vnto fables. 2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all thynges and suffre adversitie and do the worke of an evangelist fulfill thyne office vnto the vtmost.
certifieth him of the nearness of his death,
2 Timothy 4:6 For I am now redy to be offered and the tyme of my departynge is at honde. 2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought a good fight and have fulfilled my course and have kept the fayth. 2 Timothy 4:8 From hence forth is layde vp for me a croune of rightewesnes which the lorde that is a righteous iudge shall geve me at that daye: not to me only but vnto all them that love his commynge.
willeth him to come speedily unto him, and certain other things which he wrote for,
2 Timothy 4:9 Make spede to come vnto me at once. 2 Timothy 4:10 For Demas hath left me and hath loved this present worlde and is departed into Tessalonica. Crescens is gone to Galacia and Titus vnto Dalmacea. 2 Timothy 4:11 Only Lucas is with me. Take Marke and bringe him with the for he is necessary vnto me forto minister. 2 Timothy 4:12 And Tichicus have I sent to Ephesus. 2 Timothy 4:13 The cloke that I lefte at Troada with Carpus whe thou commest brynge with the and the bokes but specially the partchemet.

2 Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmyth did me moche evyll the lorde rewarde him accordynge to his dedes 2 Timothy 4:15 of whom be thou ware also. For he withstode oure preachynge sore.
informeth him what had befallen him at his first answering,
2 Timothy 4:16 At my fyrst answerynge no man assissted me but all forsoke me. I praye God that it maye not be layde to their charges: 2 Timothy 4:17 notwithstondinge the Lorde assisted me and stregthed me that by me the preachinge shuld be fulfilled to the vtmost and that all the gentyls shuld heare. And I was delivered out of the mouth of the lyon. 2 Timothy 4:18 And the Lorde shall delivre me from all evyll doynge and shall kepe me vnto his hevenly kyngdome. To who be prayse for ever and ever. Amen.
