King James Version

2 Timothy 1

1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,

To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

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.

Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;

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 given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.

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

13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

14 That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us.

15 This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

16 The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain:

17 But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me.

18 The Lord grant unto him that he may find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou knowest very well.

Knijga O Kristu

Druga poslanica Timoteju 1

Mojemu ljubljenom sinu Timoteju.Neka ti naš Bog Otac i naš Gospodin Isus Krist podare milost, milosrđe i mir.

Poticaj na vjernost

Timoteju, zahvaljujem za tebe Bogu, kojemu služim čiste savjesti kao i moji preci, dok se bez prestanka, danonoćno, molim za tebe.

Kad se sjetim tvojih suza, obuzme me čežnja da te opet vidim i da se razveselim.

Znam kakvu iskrenu vjeru u Boga imaš - kao najprije tvoja baka Loida, a zatim i tvoja mati Eunika.

Zato te molim: raspiruj duhovni dar koji ti je Bog dao kad sam na tebe položio ruke.

Jer Bog nam nije dao duha bojažljivosti, već Duha snage, ljubavi i razboritosti.

Ne srami se govoriti o našemu Gospodinu niti o meni, iako sam u zatvoru! Budi spreman sa mnom trpjeti zaradi navješćivanja Radosne vijesti. Bog će ti za to dati snage.

On nas je spasio i pozvao nas da živimo svetim životom - ne zato što smo to svojim djelima zaslužili, nego zato što je to bio njegov naum još od vječnosti: da nam daruje svoju milost u Isusu Kristu.

10 Sada nam je sve to objavio dolaskom našega Spasitelja Isusa Krista, koji je skršio moć smrti i učinio da kroz Radosnu vijest zasja život i besmrtnost.

11 Bog me je postavio da budem propovjednik, apostol i učitelj te Radosne vijesti.

12 Zato i trpim ovdje u tamnici. Ali ne stidim se toga jer poznajem onoga u koga se pouzdajem i siguran sam da je on kadar sačuvati povjereno do dana svojega dolaska.

13 Uzor neka ti bude zdravo učenje koje si od mene čuo u vjeri i ljubavi u Kristu Isusu.

14 Dobro čuvaj blago koje ti je povjereno s pomoću Svetoga Duha.

15 Kao što znaš, svi kršćani u Maloj Aziji su me napustili - među njima i Figel i Hermogen.

16 Neka Gospodin milosrđem daruje Oneziforov dom jer me je često znao osvježiti svojim posjetom. Nije se sramio što sam u zatvoru.

17 Naprotiv, kad je došao u Rim, brižno me potražio i pronašao.

18 Neka mu Gospodin daruje milosrđe na dan Kristova dolaska. Znaš koliko mi je puta pomogao u Efezu.
