2 Timothy 2:4-14 KJV

4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier .
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned , except he strive lawfully.
6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:
9 Wherein I suffer trouble , as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound .
11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
12 If we suffer , we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
13 If we believe not , yet he abideth faithful: he cannot * deny himself.
14 Of these things put them in remembrance , charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers .
