1 Thou [Note 1] therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
7 Consider what I [Note 1] say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:
9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.
10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;
18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some.
19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

1 tu ergo fili mi confortare in gratia quae est in Christo Iesu
2 et quae audisti a me per multos testes haec commenda fidelibus hominibus qui idonei erunt et alios docere
3 labora sicut bonus miles Christi Iesu
4 nemo militans inplicat se negotiis saecularibus ut ei placeat cui se probavit
5 nam et qui certat in agone non coronatur nisi legitime certaverit
6 laborantem agricolam oportet primum de fructibus accipere
7 intellege quae dico dabit enim tibi Dominus in omnibus intellectum
8 memor esto Iesum Christum resurrexisse a mortuis ex semine David secundum evangelium meum
9 in quo laboro usque ad vincula quasi male operans sed verbum Dei non est alligatum
10 ideo omnia sustineo propter electos ut et ipsi salutem consequantur quae est in Christo Iesu cum gloria caelesti
11 fidelis sermo nam si conmortui sumus et convivemus
12 si sustinemus et conregnabimus si negabimus et ille negabit nos
13 si non credimus ille fidelis manet negare se ipsum non potest
14 haec commone testificans coram Domino noli verbis contendere in nihil utile ad subversionem audientium
15 sollicite cura te ipsum probabilem exhibere Deo operarium inconfusibilem recte tractantem verbum veritatis
16 profana autem inaniloquia devita multum enim proficient ad impietatem
17 et sermo eorum ut cancer serpit ex quibus est Hymeneus et Philetus
18 qui a veritate exciderunt dicentes resurrectionem iam factam et subvertunt quorundam fidem
19 sed firmum fundamentum Dei stetit habens signaculum hoc cognovit Dominus qui sunt eius et discedat ab iniquitate omnis qui nominat nomen Domini
20 in magna autem domo non solum sunt vasa aurea et argentea sed et lignea et fictilia et quaedam quidem in honorem quaedam autem in contumeliam
21 si quis ergo emundaverit se ab istis erit vas in honorem sanctificatum et utile Domino ad omne opus bonum paratum
22 iuvenilia autem desideria fuge sectare vero iustitiam fidem caritatem pacem cum his qui invocant Dominum de corde puro
23 stultas autem et sine disciplina quaestiones devita sciens quia generant lites
24 servum autem Domini non oportet litigare sed mansuetum esse ad omnes docibilem patientem
25 cum modestia corripientem eos qui resistunt nequando det illis Deus paenitentiam ad cognoscendam veritatem
26 et resipiscant a diaboli laqueis a quo capti tenentur ad ipsius voluntatem
