2 Timothy 2:8-15

CEB 8 Remember Jesus Christ, who was raised from the dead and descended from David. This is my good news. NRS 8 Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, a descendant of David—that is my gospel, CEB 9 This is the reason I'm suffering to the point that I'm in prison like a common criminal. But God's word cannot be imprisoned. NRS 9 for which I suffer hardship, even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But the word of God is not chained. CEB 10 This is why I endure everything for the sake of those who are chosen by God so that they too may experience salvation in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. NRS 10 Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, so that they may also obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory. CEB 11 This saying is reliable: "If we have died together, we will also live together. NRS 11 The saying is sure: If we have died with him, we will also live with him; CEB 12 If we endure, we will also rule together. If we deny him, he will also deny us. NRS 12 if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he will also deny us; CEB 13 If we are disloyal, he stays faithful" because he can't be anything else than what he is. NRS 13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself. CEB 14 Remind them of these things and warn them in the sight of God not to engage in battles over words that aren't helpful and only destroy those who hear them. NRS 14 Remind them of this, and warn them before God that they are to avoid wrangling over words, which does no good but only ruins those who are listening. CEB 15 Make an effort to present yourself to God as a tried-and-true worker, who doesn't need to be ashamed but is one who interprets the message of truth correctly. NRS 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved by him, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly explaining the word of truth.
