I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine.
For the time will come, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts will they multiply to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they will turn away [their] ears from the truth, and will be turned to fables.
But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
