2 Timothy 4:1

I charge thee (diamarturomai). Rather, "I testify." See 1 Thessalonians 4:6 . See 1 Timothy 5:21 for this verb and appeal to God and Christ. Who shall judge (tou mellonto krinein). "The one going or about to judge" (regular idiom with mellw). The quick and the dead (zwnta kai nekrou). "Living and dead." See 1 Thessalonians 4:16 . And by his appearing (kai thn epipaneian). Accusative of conjuration (verbs of swearing), after diamarturomai as is basileian (by his kingdom). See 1 Thessalonians 5:27 . For epipaneian, see 1 Thessalonians 1:10 ; Titus 2:13 ; 1 Timothy 6:14 ; 2 Thessalonians 2:8 .
