Therefore I intend always to remind you of these things, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have.
I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to arouse you by way of reminder,
since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me.
And I will see to it that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things.
