2 Timothy 4:1-2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Paul’s Farewell Message

Timothy, in the presence[a] of our great God and our Lord Jesus Christ, the One who is destined to judge both the living and the dead by the revelation of his kingdom—I solemnly instruct you to proclaim the Word of God and stand upon it no matter what! Rise to the occasion and preach when it is convenient and when it is not. Preach in the full expression of the Holy Spirit[b]—with wisdom and patience as you instruct and teach the people.


  1. 2 Timothy 4:1 Or “before the eyes of God.” The Greek word is enopion, which could be translated “within eyesight of.” Imagine looking into heaven and seeing the eyes of God gazing at you. This is the strength of Paul’s charge to Timothy.
  2. 2 Timothy 4:2 As translated from the Aramaic.
