I solemnly call on you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who is going to judge those who are living and those who are dead. I do this because Christ Jesus will come to rule [the world].
Be ready to spread the word whether or not the time is right. Point out errors, warn people, and encourage them. Be very patient when you teach.
A time will come when people will not listen to accurate teachings. Instead, they will follow their own desires and surround themselves with teachers who tell them what they want to hear.
People will refuse to listen to the truth and turn to myths.
But you must keep a clear head in everything. Endure suffering. Do the work of a missionary. Devote yourself completely to your work.
My life is coming to an end, and it is now time for me to be poured out as a sacrifice to God.
