2 Timothy 1:3-7 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

I do thankings to my God, to whom I serve from my progenitors [from my progenitors, either ancestors,] in clean conscience, that without ceasing I have mind of thee in my prayers, night and day,

desiring to see thee; having mind of thy tears [mindful of thy tears], that I be filled with joy.

And I bethink of that faith [And I take recording, or mind, of that faith], that is in thee not feigned, which also dwelled first in thine aunt Lois, and in thy mother Eunice. And I am certain, that also in thee.

For which cause I admonish thee, that thou raise again the grace of God, that is in thee by the setting on of mine hands [by the on-putting of mine hands].

For why [Soothly] God gave not to us the spirit of dread, but of virtue, and of love, and of soberness.

2 Timothy 1:3-7 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

I thank God, whom I serve apart from my fathers with a pure conscience, as without ceasing I make mention of you in my prayers night and day, desiring to see you, mindful of your tears. I am filled with joy when I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice, and am assured that it dwells in you also. And so I remind you to stir up the gift of God that is in you by the putting on of my hands. For God has not given to us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and soberness of mind.

2 Timothy 1:3-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]I thank God, whom I serve from mine [b]elders with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day.

Desiring to see thee, mindful of thy tears, that I may be filled with joy:

When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and in thy mother Eunice, and am assured that it dwelleth in thee also.

[c]Wherefore, I put thee in remembrance that thou [d]stir up the gift of God which is in thee, by the putting on of mine hands.

For God hath not given to us the Spirit of [e]fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

  1. 2 Timothy 1:3 The chiefest mark that he shooteth at in this Epistle, is to confirm Timothy to continue constantly and manfully even to the end, setting first before him the great good will he beareth him, and then reckoning up the excellent gifts which God would as it were have to be by inheritance in Timothy, and his ancestors, which might so much the more make him bound to God.
  2. 2 Timothy 1:3 From Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: for he speaketh not of Pharisaism, but of Christianism.
  3. 2 Timothy 1:6 He warneth us to set the invincible power of the Spirit, which God hath given us, against those storms which may and do come upon us.
  4. 2 Timothy 1:6 The gift of God is as it were a certain lively flame kindled in our hearts, which the flesh and the devil go about to put out: and therefore we on the contrary side must labor as much as we can to foster and keep it burning.
  5. 2 Timothy 1:7 To pierce us through, and terrify us, as men whom the Lord will destroy.

2 Timothy 1:3-7 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day; greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of thy tears, that I may be filled with joy; when I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also. Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
