2nd Timothy   chapter 1

      1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will
     of God, according to the promise of life which is
     in Christ Jesus,
      2 To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace,
     mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ
     Jesus our Lord.
      3 I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers
     with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have
     remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;
      4 Greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of
     thy tears, that I may be filled with joy;
      5 When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith
     that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy
     grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am
     persuaded that in thee also.
      6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou
     stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the
     putting on of my hands.
      7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
     but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
      8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony
     of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou
     partaker of the afflictions of the gospel
     according to the power of God;
      9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy
     calling, not according to our works, but
     according to his own purpose and grace, which was
     given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
     10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of
     our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished
     death, and hath brought life and immortality to
     light through the gospel:
     11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an
     apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
     12 For the which cause I also suffer these
     things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know
     whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is
     able to keep that which I have committed unto him
     against that day.
     13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou
     hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in
     Christ Jesus.
     14 That good thing which was committed unto thee
     keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.
     15 This thou knowest, that all they which are in
     Asia be turned away from me; of whom are
     Phygellus and Hermogenes.
     16 The Lord give mercy unto the house of
     Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not
     ashamed of my chain:
     17 But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out
     very diligently, and found me.
     18 The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy
     of the Lord in that day: and in how many things
     he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest
     very well. 2nd Timothy chapter 2
