2 Timothy 2:14-26

14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,c
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
