11 that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.1

The Lord's Grace to Paul

12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength,2 that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.3 13 Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor4 and a violent man, I was shown mercy5 because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.6 14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly,7 along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.8 15 Here is a trustworthy saying9 that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners10--of whom I am the worst. 16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy11 so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience12 as an example for those who would believe13 on him and receive eternal life.14 17 Now to the King15 eternal, immortal,16 invisible,17 the only God,18 be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.19 18 Timothy, my son,20 I give you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies once made about you,21 so that by following them you may fight the good fight,22 19 holding on to faith and a good conscience.23 Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith.24 20 Among them are Hymenaeus25 and Alexander,26 whom I have handed over to Satan27 to be taught not to blaspheme.
