Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lo'is and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you. 5 I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.
6 Hence I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; 6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
7 for God did not give us a spirit of timidity but a spirit of power and love and self-control. 7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
8 Do not be ashamed then of testifying to our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel in the power of God, 8 So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God,
9 who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not in virtue of our works but in virtue of his own purpose and the grace which he gave us in Christ Jesus ages ago, 9 who has saved us and called us to a holy life--not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,
10 and now has manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. 10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
11 For this gospel I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, 11 And of this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher.
12 and therefore I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am sure that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. 12 That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.
13 Follow the pattern of the sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus; 13 What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus.
14 guard the truth that has been entrusted to you by the Holy Spirit who dwells within us. 14 Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you--guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
