I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience the way my forefathers did, as I constantly remember you in my prayers night and day,
For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher.
For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day.
Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.
You are aware of the fact that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes.
The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
Consider what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.

in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord , the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.
When you come bring the cloak which I left at Troas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments.
