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.

Neno: Bibilia Takatifu

2 Timotheo 1

1Kutoka kwa Paulo mtume wa Kristo Yesu kwa mapenzi ya Mungu, kulingana na ahadi ya uzima uliomo ndani ya Kristo Yesu. Kwa Timotheo, mwanangu mpendwa. Ninakutakia neema, rehema na amani kutoka kwa Mungu Baba na kwa Kristo Yesu Bwana wetu.

Paulo Amtia Moyo Timotheo

Ninamshukuru Mungu ninayemtumikia kwa dhamiri safi, kama walivyomtumikia baba zangu, ninapokukumbuka usiku na mchana katika sala zangu. Nikiyakumbuka machozi yako, ninatamani sana kukuona ili nijazwe furaha. Nakumbushwa kuhusu imani yako ya kweli, imani ambayo walikuwa nayo bibi yako Loisi na mama yako Eunike na ambayo nina hakika, unayo. Kwa sababu hii nakukum busha ukichochee kile kipawa ulichopewa na Mungu wakati nilipo kuwekea mikono. Maana Mungu hakutupatia roho ya woga bali roho ya nguvu, ujasiri na kiasi.

Basi usione haya kumshuhudia Bwana wetu, wala usinionee haya mimi niliye mfungwa kwa ajili yake, bali uishiriki taabu kwa ajili ya Habari Njema kwa kadiri ya nguvu upewayo na Mungu. Yeye ametuokoa na kutuita tupokee maisha ya utakatifu; si kwa sababu ya matendo yetu mema bali kwa sababu ya makusudio yake na neema yake. Tulipewa neema hii katika Kristo Yesu tangu milele 10 na sasa imedhihirishwa kwa kuja kwake Mwokozi wetu Kristo Yesu ambaye ameondoa kifo kabisa na kuleta uzima na kutokufa kwa njia ya Injili. 11 Nami nimechaguliwa kuwa mhubiri, mtume na mwalimu wa Injili hii. 12 Ndio sababu ninateseka hivi. Lakini sioni aibu kwa maana ninamjua huyo niliyemwamini na nina hakika ya kuwa anaweza kutunza kile nilichomkabidhi, mpaka siku ile.

13 Tumia kama kielelezo cha mafundisho sahihi maneno ya kweli ambayo umeyasikia kutoka kwangu pamoja na imani na upendo katika Kristo Yesu. 14 Linda ile kweli ambayo umekabidhiwa na Roho Mtakatifu aishiye ndani yetu. 15 Bila shaka unafahamu kuwa watu wote katika jimbo la Asia wameniacha, wakiwemo Filego na Hermogene. 16 Bwana aonyeshe huruma yake kwa jamaa ya Onesiforo kwa sababu alinitia moyo mara nyingi na hakuonea aibu minyororo yangu. 17 Bali alipofika Roma alinitafuta kwa bidii mpaka akanipata. 18 Bwana amwezeshe kupata rehema kutoka kwa Bwana siku ile. Unafahamu pia jinsi alivyoni saidia huko Efeso.
