Guard the Deposit Entrusted to You
3 # See Rom. 1:8 I thank God #See Acts 22:3; 24:14 whom I serve, as did my ancestors, #1 Tim. 3:9; See Acts 23:1 with a clear conscience, as I remember you #Rom. 1:9constantly in my prayers night and day. 4#[Acts 20:37] As I remember your tears, #Phil. 1:8; [ch. 4:9, 21]I long to see you, that I may be filled with joy. 5I am reminded of #Rom. 12:9; 1 Tim. 1:5 your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and #Acts 16:1; [ch. 3:15; Ps. 86:16; 116:16]your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well. 6For this reason I remind you #1 Tim. 4:14; [1 Thess. 5:19]to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, 7for God gave us #Rom. 8:15; [John 14:27; Rev. 21:8] a spirit not of fear but #Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8of power and love and self-control.
8Therefore #See Mark 8:38 do not be ashamed of #See 1 Cor. 1:6 the testimony about our Lord, nor of #[ver. 16]; See Eph. 3:1 me his prisoner, but #ch. 2:3, 9; 4:5share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, 9#1 Tim. 1:1; Titus 3:4 who saved us and #[Heb. 3:1]; See Rom. 8:28 called us to#1:9 Or with a holy calling, #Titus 3:5; See Rom. 3:27 not because of our works but because of #[Heb. 3:1]; See Rom. 8:28 his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus #Titus 1:2; [Rom. 16:25]; See Eph. 1:4before the ages began,#1:9 Greek before times eternal 10and which now has #See Rom. 16:26 been manifested through #See 2 Thess. 2:8 the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, #1 Cor. 15:26; [1 Cor. 15:54, 55; Heb. 2:14, 15] who abolished death and #[Job 33:30] brought life and #Rom. 2:7immortality to light through the gospel, 11#See 1 Tim. 2:7for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, 12#ch. 2:9 which is why I suffer as I do. But #ver. 8 I am not ashamed, for #[Ps. 10:14; 1 Pet. 4:19] I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until #ver. 18; ch. 4:8; See 1 Cor. 3:13 that day #1 Tim. 6:20what has been entrusted to me.#1:12 Or what I have entrusted to him; Greek my deposit 13#[ch. 3:14; Titus 1:9; Rev. 3:3] Follow #[Rom. 2:20; 6:17] the pattern of #See 1 Tim. 1:10 the sound#1:13 Or healthy words #ch. 2:2 that you have heard from me, in #1 Tim. 1:14the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 14By the Holy Spirit #See Rom. 8:9 who dwells within us, guard #[See ver. 12 above]the good deposit entrusted to you.
15You are aware that #Acts 19:10; [ch. 4:10, 11, 16]all who are in Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16May the Lord grant mercy to #ch. 4:19 the household of Onesiphorus, for he often #Philem. 7, 20 refreshed me and was not ashamed of #[ver. 8]; See Acts 28:20my chains, 17but when he arrived in Rome #Matt. 25:36-40he searched for me earnestly and found me— 18may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on #ver. 12 that day!—and you well know all the service he #Heb. 6:10rendered at Ephesus.
