14 You, however, (A)continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that (B)from childhood you have known (C)the sacred writings which are able to (D)give you the wisdom that leads to (E)salvation through faith which is in (F)Christ Jesus. 16 (G)All Scripture is [a]inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for [b]training in righteousness; 17 so that (H)the man of God may be adequate, (I)equipped for every good work.

“Preach the Word”

(J)I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to (K)judge the living and the dead, and by His (L)appearing and His kingdom: preach (M)the word; be ready in season and out of season; (N)reprove, rebuke, exhort, with [c]great (O)patience and instruction. For (P)the time will come when they will not endure (Q)sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and (R)will turn away their ears from the truth and (S)will turn aside to myths. But you, (T)be sober in all things, (U)endure hardship, do the work of an (V)evangelist, fulfill your (W)ministry.
