Final Instructions to Timothy

9 Make haste to come to me quickly. 10 For Demas deserted me, [because he]a loved the present age, and went to Thessalonica. Crescens [went] to Galatia; Titus [went] to Dalmatia. 11 Luke alone is with me. Take along Mark [and]b bring [him] with you, because he is useful to me for ministry. 12 But I have sent Tychicus to Ephesus. 13 [When you]c come, bring the cloak that I left behind in Troas with Carpus, and the scrolls, especially the parchments. 14 Alexander the metalworker did me much harm; may the Lord pay back to him according to his deeds, 15 against whom you also be on guard, because he vehemently opposed our words. 16 At my first defense, no one came to my [aid], but [they] all deserted me; may it not be counted against them. 17 But the Lord helped me and strengthened me, so that through me the proclamation might be fulfilled and all the Gentiles might hear, and he rescued [me] from the lion's mouth. 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed, and will save [me] for his heavenly kingdom, to whom [be] the glory {forever and ever}d. Amen.
