I Solemnly Charge You To Proclaim The Word, For People Will Turn Away From The Truth

I solemnly-charge you in the sight of God and Christ Jesus, the One going-to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearance and His kingdom— proclaim the Word. Stand-at[a] it in-season, out-of-season. Rebuke, warn, exhort[b], with all patience and instruction. For there will be a time when they will not bear-with healthy teaching, but while itching[c] with respect to the hearing, they will heap-up teachers for themselves in accordance with their own desires.
