2 Timothy 2 (KJV)
[1] Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace
that is in Christ Jesus.

[2] And the things that thou hast heard of me
among many witnesses, the same commit thou to
faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

[3] Thou therefore endure hardness, as a
good soldier of Jesus Christ.

[4] No man that warreth entangleth himself
with the affairs of this life; that he may
please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

[5] And if a man also strive for masteries,
yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

[6] The husbandman that laboureth must be
first partaker of the fruits.

[7] Consider what I say; and the Lord give
thee understanding in all things.

[8] Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of
David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

[9] Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer,
even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.

[10] Therefore I endure all things for the elect's
sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation
which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

[11] It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead
with him, we shall also live with him:

[12] If we suffer, we shall also reign with him:
if we deny him, he also will deny us:

[13] If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful:
he cannot deny himself.

[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.

[16] But shun profane and vain babblings: for
they will increase unto more ungodliness.

[17] And their word will eat as doth a canker:
of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;

[18] Who concerning the truth have erred, saying
that the resurrection is past already; and
overthrow the faith of some.

[19] Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth
sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them
that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the
name of Christ depart from iniquity.

[20] But in a great house there are not only
vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood
and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

[21] If a man therefore purge himself from these,
he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified,
and meet for the master's use, and prepared
unto every good work.

[22] Flee also youthful lusts: but follow
righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with
them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

[23] But foolish and unlearned questions avoid,
knowing that they do gender strifes.

[24] And the servant of the Lord must not strive;
but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,

[25] In meekness instructing those that oppose
themselves; if God peradventure will give them
repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

[26] And that they may recover themselves out
of the snare of the devil, who are taken
captive by him at his will.
