13 Hold to the standard[a] of sound words that you heard from me and do so with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.[b] 14 Protect that good thing[c] entrusted to you, through the Holy Spirit who lives within us.

15 You know that everyone in the province of Asia[d] deserted me, including Phygelus and Hermogenes.


  1. 2 Timothy 1:13 tn Or “pattern.”
  2. 2 Timothy 1:13 tn Grk “in faith and love in Christ Jesus.”sn With the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. This describes the manner in which Timothy must hold to the standard (similar to Paul’s call for him to give attention to his life and his teaching in 1 Tim 4:11-16).
  3. 2 Timothy 1:14 sn That good thing (Grk “the good deposit”) refers to the truth of the gospel committed to Timothy (cf. 1 Tim 6:20).
  4. 2 Timothy 1:15 tn Grk “Asia”; in the NT this always refers to the Roman province of Asia. The Roman province of Asia made up about one-third of modern Asia Minor and was on the western side of it. Asia lay to the west of the region of Phrygia and Galatia. The words “the province of” are supplied to indicate to the modern reader that this does not refer to the continent of Asia.
