when I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois and thy mother Eunice, and I am persuaded that in thee also.
Therefore I admonish thee that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of strength and of love and of temperance.
Therefore be not thou ashamed to give testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel by the power of God,
who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the times of the ages,
but is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who has annulled death, and has brought life and incorruption to light through the gospel,
unto which I am appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher of the Gentiles.
For which cause I also suffer these things; nevertheless, I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and charity which is in Christ Jesus.
Keep the good deposit committed unto thee by the Holy Spirit which dwells in us.
