2 Timothy 4

He exhorteth him to do his duty with all care and diligence,

2 Timothy 4:1 I testifie therefore before God, & the Lorde Iesus Christe, which shall iudge the quicke and the dead at his appearyng, and his kingdome. 2 Timothy 4:2 Preache the worde, be instant in season, out of season: Improue, rebuke, exhort in all long sufferyng and doctrine. 2 Timothy 4:3 For the tyme wyll come, when they shall not suffer wholsome doctrine: but after their owne lustes, shal they whose eares itche, get the an heape of teachers: 2 Timothy 4:4 And shall turne away their hearyng from the trueth, and shalbe turned vnto fables. 2 Timothy 4:5 But watche thou in all thynges, suffer afflictions, do the worke of an Euangelist, fulfyll thy ministerie:

certifieth him of the nearness of his death,

2 Timothy 4:6 For I am nowe redie to be offered, & the tyme of my dissolution is at hande. 2 Timothy 4:7 I haue fought a good fyght, I haue fulfylled [my] course, I haue kept ye faith. 2 Timothy 4:8 Hencefoorth there is layde vp for me a crowne of ryghteousnesse, which the Lorde, the ryghteous iudge, shall geue me at that day: not to me only, but vnto the also yt haue loued his appearyng.

willeth him to come speedily unto him, and certain other things which he wrote for,

2 Timothy 4:9 Do thy diligence to come shortly vnto me. 2 Timothy 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, hauing loued this present worlde, and is departed vnto Thessalonica, Crescens to Galatia, Titus vnto Dalmatia. 2 Timothy 4:11 Only Luke is with me. Takyng Marke and bryng him with thee, for he is profitable vnto me for ye ministration. 2 Timothy 4:12 And Tychicus haue I sent to Ephesus. 2 Timothy 4:13 The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, whe thou commest bring with thee, and the bookes, but specially the parchementes.

warneth him to beware of Alexander the smith,

2 Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith shewed me much euyll: The Lorde rewarde hym accordyng to his deedes. 2 Timothy 4:15 Of whom be thou ware also: For he hath greatly withstande our preaching.

informeth him what had befallen him at his first answering,

2 Timothy 4:16 At my first aunsweryng, no man assisted me, but all forsoke me, [I pray God] yt it may not be layde to their charges: 2 Timothy 4:17 Notwithstandyng, the Lorde assisted me, and strengthed me, that by me the preachyng should be fulfylled to the vtmost, and that all the gentiles should heare, and I was deliuered out of the mouth of the Lion. 2 Timothy 4:18 And the Lorde shall delyuer me from euery euyll worke, & will preserue me vnto his heauenly kingdome: To who [be] prayse for euer and euer. Amen.

and soon after he concludeth.

2 Timothy 4:19 Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the housholde of Onesiphorus. 2 Timothy 4:20 Erastus abode at Corinthum: But Trophimus haue I left at Miletum sicke. 2 Timothy 4:21 Do thy diligece to come before winter. Eubolus greeteth thee, and Pudens, & Linus, and Claudia, & all the brethre. 2 Timothy 4:22 The Lorde Iesus Christe [be] with thy spirite: Grace be with you. Amen. {The seconde epistle vnto Timothe, was written from Rome, when Paul was presented the seconde tyme vnto the Emperour Nero.}
