2 Timothy 2:1-26

1 Thou therfor my sonne, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Iesus. 2 And what thynges thou hast hearde of me, manye bearyng wytnes, the same delyuer to faythfull men, whiche are apte to teache other. 3 Thou therfore suffer affliccyon as a good souldyer of Iesu Christe. 4 No man that warreth entangleth hym selfe with worldye busynes, and that because he woulde please hym that hath chosen hym to be a souldyer. 5 And though a man stryue for a masterye, yet is he not crouned, except he stryue lawfullye. 6 The husbandman that laboureth must fyrste receyue of the frutes. 7 Consyder what I saye. The Lorde geueth vnderstandynge in all thinges. 8 Remember that Iesus Christe beynge of the sede of Dauid, rose agayne from death accordynge to my Gospell, 9 wherein I suffer trouble as an euyll doar, euen vnto bondes. But the worde of God was not bounde. 10 Here fore I suffre all thynges, for the electes sakes, that they myghte also obtayne the saluacyon, which is in Christe Iesus, with eternal glory. 11 It is a true saiyng, yf we be deade wt hym we also shall lyue with hym. 12 Yf we be pacyente, we shal also raygne with hym. Yf we denye hym, he also shall denye vs 13 Yf we beleue not yet abydeth he faythfull. He can not deny hym selfe. 14 Of these thynges put them in remembraunce, and testifye before the Lorde, that they stryue not aboute wordes: which is to no profyte, but to peruerte the hearers. 15 Studye to shewe thy selfe laudable vnto God a workeman that nedeth not to be ashamed dyuydynge the worde of truste iustelye. 16 Vnghostly and vayne voices passe ouer. For they shall encreace vnto greater vngodlynes, 17 and theyr wordes shall frete euen as doeth a cancre: of whose number is Himeneos & Phyletos: 18 which as concernyng the truethe haue erred, saiynge that the resurreccyon is past alredy, and do destroye the fayth of diuers persons. 19 But the sure grounde of God remayneth, and hath thys seale: the Lord knoweth them that are his, & let euerye man that calleth on the name of Christe departe from iniquitie. 20 Notwtstandyng in a greate house are not onelye vessels of golde and of syluer: but also of woode and of earthe, some for honoure, and some vnto dyshonoure. 21 But yf a man purge hym self from suche felowes, he shalbe a vessell sanctyfyed vnto honoure, mete for the Lorde, & prepared vnto all good workes. 22 Lustes of youth auoyde, and folow ryghtuousnes, fayth, loue, & peace, with them that call on the Lorde with pure herte. 23 Folyshe & vnlearned questions put from the, remembring that they do, but gendre stryfe. 24 But the seruaunt of the Lorde must not stryue, but must be peasable to all men, and apte to teache, and one that can suffre 25 the euyll in meakenes, and can informe them that resiste: yf that God at any tyme wyll geue them repentaunce for to know the trueth, 26 that they may come to them selues agayne out of the snare of the deuyll, whiche are nowe taken of hym at hys wyll.

1 John 2:15-17

15 Se that ye loue not the world, neyther the thynges that are in the worlde. Yf anye man loue the worlde the loue of the father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world (as the luste of the fleshe, the lust of the eyes, and the pryde of goodes) is not of the father, but of the world. 17 And the world vanysheth away, and the lust therof, but he that fulfilleth the will of God, abideth euer.
