2 Timothy 4:1-8 (Today's New International Version)

View In My Bible
1 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead,1 and in view of his appearing2 and his kingdom, I give you this charge:3 2 Preach4 the word;5 be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke6 and encourage7--with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine.8 Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.9 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.10 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship,11 do the work of an evangelist,12 discharge all the duties of your ministry. 6 For I am already being poured out like a drink offering,13 and the time for my departure is near.14 7 I have fought the good fight,15 I have finished the race,16 I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me17 the crown of righteousness,18 which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day19--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.20
