2 Timothy 1:8-12 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Therefore do not thou shame the witnessing of our Lord Jesus Christ, neither me, his prisoner; but travail thou together in the gospel by the virtue of God [after the virtue of God];

that delivered us, and called with his holy calling, not after our works, but by his purpose and grace [that delivered us, and called with this holy calling, not after our works, but after his purpose and grace], that is given [to us] in Christ Jesus before worldly times;

10 but now it is open by the lightening of our Saviour Jesus Christ, which destroyed death, and lightened life and uncorruption by the gospel. [now forsooth it is open by the lighting of our Saviour Jesus Christ, the which soothly destroyed death, forsooth lighted life and uncorruption by the gospel.]

11 In which I am set a preacher and apostle, and master of heathen men.

12 For which cause also I suffer these things; but I am not confounded. For I know to whom I have believed, and I am certain that he is mighty to keep that (which) is taken to my keeping into that day.

2 Timothy 1:8-12 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Be not ashamed to testify of our Lord; neither be ashamed of me, who am bound for his sake. But suffer adversity also with the gospel, through the power of God, who saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our deeds, but according to his own purpose and grace. Which grace was given through Christ Jesus before the world was, 10 but is now declared openly by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who has put away death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

11 Of this gospel I am appointed a preacher and apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles – 12 for which cause I also suffer these things. Nevertheless, I am not ashamed. For I know whom I have believed, and am sure that he is able to keep that which I have committed to his keeping for that day.

2 Timothy 1:8-12 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]Be not therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, neither of me [b]his prisoner: but be partaker of the afflictions of the [c]Gospel according to the [d]power of God,

[e]Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was [f]given to us through Christ Jesus [g]before the world was,

10 But is now made manifest by that appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality unto [h]light through the Gospel.

11 [i]Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and Apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.

12 [j]For the which cause I also suffer these things, [k]but I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed to him against that day.

  1. 2 Timothy 1:8 He proveth that the ignominy or shame of the cross is not only not to be ashamed of, but also that it is glorious and most honorable: first, because the Gospel wherefore the godly are afflicted, is the testimony of Christ: and secondly, because at length the great virtue and power of God appeareth in them.
  2. 2 Timothy 1:8 For his sake.
  3. 2 Timothy 1:8 The Gospel after a sort is said to be afflicted in them that preach it.
  4. 2 Timothy 1:8 Through the power of God.
  5. 2 Timothy 1:9 He showeth with how great benefits God hath bound us to maintain boldly and constantly his glory which is joined with our salvation, and reckoneth up the causes of our salvation, to wit, that free and eternal purpose of God to save us in Christ which was to come, whereby it should come to pass, that we should at length be freely called of God by the preaching of the Gospel, to Christ the destroyer of death and author of immortality.
  6. 2 Timothy 1:9 He sayeth that that grace was given us from everlasting, unto which we were predestinate from everlasting. So that the doctrine of foreseen faith and foreseen works, is clean contrary to the doctrine which preached and teacheth the grace of God.
  7. 2 Timothy 1:9 Before that course of years, which hath run on ever since the beginning of the world.
  8. 2 Timothy 1:10 Hath caused life and immortality to appear.
  9. 2 Timothy 1:11 That is, the Gospel which the Apostle preached.
  10. 2 Timothy 1:12 He confirmeth his Apostleship by a strange argument, to wit, because the world could not abide it, and therefore it persecuted him that preached it.
  11. 2 Timothy 1:12 By setting his own example before us, he showeth us how it may be, that we shall not be ashamed of the cross of Christ, to wit, if we be sure that God both can and will keep the salvation which he hath as it were laid up in store by himself for us against that day.
