2 Timothy 1:10-12
New American Bible (Revised Edition)
10 but now made manifest through the appearance of our savior Christ Jesus, who destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,(A) 11 [a]for which I was appointed preacher and apostle(B) and teacher. 12 [b]On this account I am suffering these things; but I am not ashamed,(C) for I know him in whom I have believed and am confident that he is able to guard what has been entrusted to me until that day.Read full chapter
- 1:11 Teacher: the overwhelming majority of manuscripts and Fathers read “teacher of the nations,” undoubtedly a harmonization with 1 Tm 2:7.
- 1:12 He is able to guard…until that day: the intervening words can also be translated “what I have entrusted to him” (i.e., the fruit of his ministry) as well as “what has been entrusted to me” (i.e., the faith). The same difficult term occurs in 2 Tm 1:14, where it is modified by the adjective “rich” and used without a possessive.
