“Preach the Word”

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

For I am already being (O)poured out as a drink offering, and the time of (P)my departure has come. (Q)I have fought the good fight, I have finished (R)the course, I have kept (S)the faith; in the future there (T)is laid up for me (U)the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on (V)that day; and not only to me, but also to (W)all who have loved His (X)appearing.

  1. 2 Timothy 4:2 Lit all

16 At my first defense no one supported me, but all deserted me; (A)may it not be counted against them. 17 But the Lord stood with me and (B)strengthened me, so that through me (C)the proclamation might [a]be (D)fully accomplished, and that all (E)the Gentiles might hear; and I was (F)rescued out of (G)the lion’s mouth. 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed, and will [b](H)bring me safely to His (I)heavenly kingdom; (J)to [c]Him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
