I Give Thanks For Your Sincere Faith, And Remind You To Rekindle The Gift of God In You
3 I have gratitude to God, Whom I have served[a] from my ancestors[b] with a clean conscience, as I have unceasing remembrance concerning you in my prayers by night and by day— 4 yearning to see you, having remembered your tears, in order that I may be filled with joy; 5 having received a reminder of the sincere faith in you which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice. And I am convinced that it is also in you, 6 for which reason I am reminding you to be rekindling[c] the gift of God which is in you through the laying-on of my hands. 7 For God did not give us a spirit of fearfulness[d], but of power and love and a sound-mind[e].
Suffer Hardship With Me For The Gospel. Hold The Teachings In Faith And Love
8 Therefore, do not be[f] ashamed-of the testimony of our Lord nor me His prisoner, but suffer-hardship-with me for the good-news according-to[g]the power of God: 9 the One having saved us and called us with[h]a holy calling, not according-to our works but according to His own purpose and grace— it having been given to us in Christ Jesus before eternal times 10 but now having been revealed through the appearance of our Savior Christ Jesus, He having abolished[i] death and brought-to-light life and immortality through the good-news 11 for which I was appointed a proclaimer and apostle and teacher, 12 for which reason I also am suffering these things. But I am not ashamed, for I know in Whom I have believed and am convinced that He is able to guard my deposit until that day. 13 Be holding the pattern of healthy words which you heard from me in[j]the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 14 Guard the good deposit through the Holy Spirit dwelling in us.

15 You know this— that all the ones in[k] Asia turned-away-from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiphorus, because he often refreshed me and was not ashamed-of my chain, 17 but having come-to-be in Rome, he sought me diligently and found me.18 May the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that day. And you know very-well how many things he ministered in Ephesus.
