1 G4771 You G3767 therefore, G3450 my G5043 child, G1743 be strengthened G1722 in G5485 the grace G3588 that is G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus.
2 G2532 G3739 The things which G191 you have heard G3844 from G1700 me G1223 among G4183 many G3144 witnesses, G3908 commit G5023 the same G4103 to faithful G444 men, G3748 who G2071 will be G2425 able to G1321 teach G2087 others G2532 also.
3 G4771 You G3767 therefore G2553 must endure hardship, G5613 as G2570 a good G4757 soldier G5547 of Christ G2424 Jesus.
4 G3762 No soldier G4754 on duty G1707 entangles himself G4230 in the affairs of G979 life, G2443 that G700 he may please G4758 him who enrolled him as a soldier.
5 G1161 G2532 Also, G1437 if G5100 anyone G118 competes in athletics, G4737 he G3756 isn't G4737 crowned G3362 unless G118 he has competed G3545 by the rules.
6 G1092 The farmers G2872 who labor G1163 must G3335 be G4412 the first G3335 to get a share G4413 of the crops.
7 G3539 Consider G3739 what G3004 I say, G1063 and G2962 may the Lord G1325 give G4671 you G4907 understanding G1722 in G3956 all things.
8 G3421 Remember G1453 G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G1453 risen G1537 from G3498 the dead, G1537 of G4690 the seed G1138 of David, G2596 according to G3450 my G2098 Good News,
9 G3739 G1722 in G2553 which I suffer hardship G3360 to G1199 the point of chains G5613 as G2557 a criminal. G235 But G2316 God's G3056 word G1210 G3756 isn't G1210 chained.
10 G1223 Therefore G5278 I endure G3956 all things G1223 for G1588 the chosen G1223 ones' sake, G2443 that G846 they G2532 also G5177 may G5177 obtain G4991 the salvation G3588 which is G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus G3326 with G166 eternal G5124 glory.
11 G3056 This saying G4103 is faithful: G1063 "For G1487 if G4880 we died with G4800 him, we will G2532 also G4800 live with him.
12 G1487 If G5278 we endure, G4821 we will G2532 also G4821 reign with G1487 him. If G720 we deny G2548 him, he also G720 will deny G2248 us.
13 G1487 If G569 we are faithless, G1565 he G3306 remains G4103 faithful. G1410 He G1410 can't G720 deny G1438 himself."
14 G5279 Remind G5023 them of these things, G1263 charging G1799 them in the sight G2962 of the Lord, G3361 that they don't G3054 argue G3054 about words, G1519 to G3762 no G5539 profit, G1909 to G2692 the subverting G191 of those who hear.
15 G4704 Give diligence G3936 to present G4572 yourself G1384 approved G2316 by God, G2040 a workman G422 who doesn't need to be ashamed, G3718 properly G3056 handling the Word G225 of Truth.
16 G1161 But G4026 shun G952 empty G2757 chatter, G1063 for G4298 it will go G4119 further G1909 in G763 ungodliness,
17 G2532 and G846 those G3056 words G2192 will G3542 consume G5613 like G1044 gangrene, G3739 of whom G2076 is G5211 Hymenaeus G2532 and G5372 Philetus;
18 G3748 men who G795 have erred G4012 concerning G225 the truth, G3004 saying G1096 that G386 the resurrection G2235 is already G1096 past, G2532 and G396 overthrowing G4102 the faith G5100 of some.
19 G3305 However G2316 God's G4731 firm G2310 foundation G2476 stands, G2192 having G3778 this G4973 seal, G2962 "The Lord G1097 knows G5607 those who are G846 his," G2532 and, G868 "Let G3956 every one G3686 who names G3686 the name G5547 of the Lord G868 depart G575 from G93 unrighteousness."
20 G1161 Now G1722 in G3173 a large G3614 house G2076 there are G3756 not G3440 only G4632 vessels G5552 of gold G2532 and G693 of silver, G235 but G2532 also G3585 of wood G2532 and G3749 of clay. G2532 G3739 Some G1519 are for G5092 honor, G1161 and G3739 some G1519 for G819 dishonor.
21 G1437 If G5100 anyone G3767 therefore G1571 purges G1438 himself G575 from G5130 these, G2071 he will be G4632 a vessel G2173 for G5092 honor, G37 sanctified, G2532 and G2173 suitable G1203 for the master's G2173 use, G2090 prepared G1519 for G3956 every G18 good G2041 work.
22 G5343 Flee G1161 from G3512 youthful G1939 lusts; G1161 but G1377 pursue G1343 righteousness, G4102 faith, G26 love, G1515 and peace G3326 with G1941 those who call G2962 on the Lord G1537 out of G2513 a pure G2588 heart.
23 G1161 But G3868 refuse G3474 foolish G2532 and G521 ignorant G2214 questionings, G1492 knowing G3754 that G1080 they generate G3163 strife.
24 G1161 G2962 The Lord's G1401 servant G1163 must G3756 not G3164 quarrel, G235 but G1511 be G2261 gentle G4314 towards G3956 all, G1317 able to teach, G420 patient,
25 G1722 in G4236 gentleness G3811 correcting G475 those who oppose him: G3379 G3379 perhaps G2316 God G1325 may give G846 them G3341 repentance G1519 leading to G1922 a full knowledge G225 of the truth,
