2 Timothy 4:2-22 (KJV)
[2] Preach the word; be instant in season,
out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort
with all long suffering and doctrine.

[3] For the time will come when they will
not endure sound doctrine; but after their
own lusts shall they heap to themselves
teachers, having itching ears;

[4] And they shall turn away their ears
from the truth, and shall be turned
unto fables.

[5] But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions,
do the work of an evangelist, make
full proof of thy ministry.

[6] For I am now ready to be offered, and the
time of my departure is at hand.

[7] I have fought a good fight, I have
finished my course, I have kept the faith:

[8] Henceforth there is laid up for me
a crown of righteousness, which the Lord,
the righteous judge, shall give me at
that day: and not to me only, but unto
all them also that love his appearing.

[9] Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me:

[10] For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved
this present world, and is departed unto
Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia,
Titus unto Dalmatia.

[11] Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and
bring him with thee: for he is profitable
to me for the ministry.

[12] And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.

[13] The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus,
when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books,
but especially the parchments.

[14] Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil:
the Lord reward him according to his works:

[15] Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath
greatly withstood our words.

[16] At my first answer no man stood with me,
but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may
not be laid to their charge.

[17] Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and
strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be
fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear:
and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

[18] And the Lord shall deliver me from every
evil work, and will preserve me unto his
heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever
and ever. Amen.

[19] Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the household
of Onesiphorus.

[20] Erastus abode at Corinth: but Trophimus have
I left at Miletum sick.

[21] Do thy diligence to come before winter.
Eubulus greeteth thee, and Pudens, and Linus,
and Claudia, and all the brethren.

[22] The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit.
Grace be with you. Amen.
