2 Timothy 1

Paul’s Second Letter to Timothy

Chapter 1

Paul, an apostle of Yehoshua Messias through the will of Elohim, according to the promise of the life which is in Messias Yehoshua, to Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace, from Elohim the Father and Messias Yehoshua our Master.

I thank Elohim, whom I serve as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. How unceasing is my memory of you in my petitions, night and day longing to see you, remembering your tears, that I may be filled with joy; having been reminded of the sincere faith that is in you; which lived first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, in you also.

For this cause, I remind you that you should stir up the gift of Elohim which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For Elohim didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control. Therefore don’t be ashamed of the testimony of our Master, nor of me his prisoner; but endure hardship for the Good News according to the power of Elohim, who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Messias Yehoshua before times eternal, 10 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior, Messias Yehoshua, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the Good News. 11 For this, I was appointed as a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. 12 For this cause I also suffer these things.

Yet I am not ashamed, for I know him whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him against that day.

13 Hold the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which is in Messias Yehoshua. 14 That good thing which was committed to you, guard through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.

15 This you know, that all who are in Asia turned away from me; of whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 May the Master grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain, 17 but when he was in Rome, he sought me diligently, and found me 18 (the Master grant to him to find the Master’s mercy in that day); and in how many things he served at Ephesus, you know very well.
