(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God according to the promise of the life that is in Christ Jesus,
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 2 To Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 3 I thank God whom I serve, as did my ancestors, with a clear conscience, as I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 4 As I remember your tears, I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 5 I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands,
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 7 for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 8 Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God,
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 9 who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began,
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 10 and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 11 for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher,
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 12 which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 13 Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 14 By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 15 You are aware that all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes.
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 16 May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my chains,
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 17 but when he arrived in Rome he searched for me earnestly and found me—
(ESV) 2 Timothy 1 : 18 may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that Day!—and you well know all the service he rendered at Ephesus.
