2 Timothy 4

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

2 Timothy 4:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and before the Lorde Iesus Christ, which shall iudge the quicke and dead at that his appearing, and in his kingdome, 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the worde: be instant, in season and out of season: improue, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come, when they will not suffer wholesome doctrine: but hauing their eares itching, shal after their owne lustes get them an heape of teachers, 2 Timothy 4:4 And shall turne their eares from the trueth, and shalbe giuen vnto fables. 2 Timothy 4:5 But watch thou in all thinges: suffer aduersitie: doe the worke of an Euangelist: cause thy ministerie to be throughly liked of.

certifieth him of the nearness of his death,

2 Timothy 4:6 For I am nowe readie to be offered, and the time of my departing is at hand. 2 Timothy 4:7 I haue fought a good fight, and haue finished my course: I haue kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:8 For hence foorth is laide vp for me the crowne of righteousnesse, which the Lorde the righteous iudge shall giue me at that day: and not to me onely, but vnto all them also that loue that his appearing.

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

2 Timothy 4:9 Make speede to come vnto me at once: 2 Timothy 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, and hath embraced this present world, & is departed vnto Thessalonica. Crescens is gone to Galatia, Titus vnto Dalmatia. 2 Timothy 4:11 Onely Luke is with me. Take Marke and bring him with thee: for he is profitable vnto me to minister. 2 Timothy 4:12 And Tychicus haue I sent to Ephesus. 2 Timothy 4:13 The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou commest, bring with thee, and the bookes, but specially the parchments.

warneth him to beware of Alexander the smith,

2 Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith hath done me much euill: the Lorde rewarde him according to his workes. 2 Timothy 4:15 Of whome be thou ware also: for he withstoode our preaching sore.

informeth him what had befallen him at his first answering,

2 Timothy 4:16 At my first answering no man assisted me, but all forsooke me: I pray God, that it may not be laide to their charge. 2 Timothy 4:17 Notwithstanding the Lord assisted me, and strengthened me, that by me the preaching might be fully beleeued, and that al the Gentiles should heare: and I was deliuered out of the mouth of the lion. 2 Timothy 4:18 And the Lorde will deliuer me from euery euil worke, and will preserue me vnto his heauenly kingdome: to whome be praise for euer and euer, Amen.

and soon after he concludeth.

2 Timothy 4:19 Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the householde of Onesiphorus. 2 Timothy 4:20 Erastus abode at Corinthus: Trophimus I left at Miletum sicke. 2 Timothy 4:21 Make speede to come before winter. Eubulus greeteth thee, & Pudens, and Linus, and Claudia, and all the brethren. 2 Timothy 4:22 The Lorde Iesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you, Amen. {The second Epistle writte from Rome vnto Timotheus, the first Bishop elected of the Church of Ephesus, when Paul was presented the second time before the Emperour Nero.}
