2 Timothy 2:1-10 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
2 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace which is in Christ Jesus:
2 And the things which thou hast heard of me by many witnesses, the same commend to faithful men, who shall be fit to teach others also.
3 Labour as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
4 No man, being a soldier to God, entangleth himself with secular businesses; that he may please him to whom he hath engaged himself.
5 For he also that striveth for the mastery, is not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
6 The husbandman, that laboureth, must first partake of the fruits.
7 Understand what I say: for the Lord will give thee in all things understanding.
8 Be mindful that the Lord Jesus Christ is risen again from the dead, of the seed of David, according to my gospel.
9 Wherein I labour even unto bands, as an evildoer; but the word of God is not bound.
10 Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation, which is in Christ Jesus, with heavenly glory.
