2 Timothy 2:4-14 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
4 No soldier in active service 1entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier. 5 Also if anyone 2competes as an athlete, he adoes not win the prize unless he competes according to the rules. 6 3The hard-working farmer ought to be the first to receive his share of the crops. 7 Consider what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything. 8 Remember Jesus Christ, 4risen from the dead, 5descendant of David, 6according to my gospel, 9 bfor which I 7suffer hardship even to 8imprisonment as a 9criminal; but 10the word of God 11is not imprisoned. 10 For this reason 12I endure all things for 13the sake of those who are chosen, 14so that they also may obtain the 15salvation which is in 16Christ Jesus and with it 17eternal glory. 11 18It is a trustworthy statement: For 19if we died with Him, we will also live with Him; 12 If we endure, 20we will also reign with Him; If we c21deny Him, He also will deny us; 13 If we are faithless, 22He remains faithful, for 23He cannot deny Himself.

An Unashamed Workman

14 Remind them of these things, and solemnly 24charge them in the presence of God not to 25wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers.
