2 Timothy 1

Timothy Charged to Guard His Trust

1Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus [a]by the will of God, according to the promise of life in Christ Jesus,

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

I thank God, whom I serve with a clear conscience [c]the way my forefathers did, as I constantly remember you in my [d]prayers night and day, longing to see you, even as I recall your tears, so that I may be filled with joy. [e]For I am mindful of the sincere faith within you, which first dwelt in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am sure that it is in you as well. For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of [f]timidity, but of power and love and [g]discipline.

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity, 10 but now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher. 12 For this reason I also suffer these things, but I am not ashamed; for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him [h]until that day. 13 [i]Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 14 Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the [j]treasure which has been entrusted to you.

15 You are aware of the fact that all who are in [k]Asia turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. 16 The Lord grant mercy to the house of Onesiphorus, for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my [l]chains; 17 but when he was in Rome, he eagerly searched for me and found me— 18 the Lord grant to him to find mercy from the Lord on that day—and you know very well what services he rendered at Ephesus.

Timoteo II 1


1Saa nhoma yi fi Kristo Yesu somafo Paulo a Onyankopɔn pɛ nti, ɔde rebɛkyerɛ baako a yɛne Kristo Yesu ayɛ nti wahyɛ yɛn asetena ho bɔ no.

De kɔma me ba pa Timoteo: Adom, mmɔborɔhunu ne asomdwoe mfi Agya Nyankopɔn ne yɛn Awurade Kristo Yesu nka wo.

Meda Onyankopɔn a mede adwene mu fann som no sɛnea me mpanyimfo yɛe no ase. Daa, anadwo ne awia, mekae wo wɔ me mpaebɔ mu.

Mekae su a wusu na mepɛ sɛ mihu wo a, na m’ani agye.

Mekae gyidi a emu yɛ den a wowɔ. Saa ara nso na mekae gyidi a na wo nena Lois ne wo na Eunike nso wɔ. Migye di sɛ wo nso wowɔ bi saa ara.

Eyi nti merebɔ wo nkae sɛ kae akyɛde a bere a mede me nsa guu wo so no Onyankopɔn de maa wo no. Efisɛ, Honhom a Onyankopɔn de maa yɛn no mma yɛnyɛ ahufo; na mmom, Honhom no ma yɛn tumi, ɔdɔ ne ahohyɛso. Mfɛre sɛ wubedi Awurade ho adanse; saa ara nso na mma me odeduani nso ho nyɛ wo fɛre. Na sɛ ɔhaw bi to wo Asɛmpa no ka ho a, gyina pintinn wɔ ahoɔden a Onyankopɔn de ama wo no mu.

Ogyee yɛn nkwa frɛɛ yɛn sɛ yɛmmɛyɛ ne de. Ɛnyɛ biribi pa bi a yɛyɛ nti, na mmom n’adom ara kwa. Ansa na wɔrehyɛ wiase ase no, na ɔnam Kristo Yesu so kyɛɛ yɛn saa adom no 10 nanso mprempren, wɔnam Agyenkwa Kristo Yesu no ba a ɔbɛba so ada no adi akyerɛ yɛn. Watwa owu tumi so nam Asɛmpa no so ama yɛahu nkwa a enni awiei. 11 Onyankopɔn ayi me sɛ menna Asɛmpa no adi sɛ ɔsomafo ne ɔkyerɛkyerɛfo.

12 Ɛnam eyinom so nti na mihu saa amane yi. Nanso meda so wɔ gyidi, efisɛ, minim nea mede me ho ato no so no na minim nso sɛ ɔbɛkora nea mede ahyɛ ne nsa no ama da no nso.

13 So nokwasɛm a mekyerɛɛ wo no mu, na fa yɛ nhwɛsode di akyi, na tena gyidi ne ɔdɔ a ɛyɛ yɛn de a aka yɛne Kristo Yesu abom no mu. 14 Hwɛ nneɛma pa a wɔnam Honhom Kronkron tumi a ɛte yɛn mu so de agyaw yɛn no so yiye.

15 Sɛnea wunim no, Kristofo a wofii Asia baa ha no nyinaa aguan agya me. Figelo ne Hermogene nso ka wɔn ho. 16 Awurade nhu Onisiforo fifo mmɔbɔ efisɛ, ɔhyɛɛ me nkuran mpɛn pii. N’ani anwu wɔ me ho sɛ mada afiase pɛn, 17 na oduu Roma ara pɛ, ɔbɔɔ mmɔden hwehwɛɛ me ara kosii sɛ ohuu me. 18 Awurade mmoa no na da no onnya ahummɔbɔ mfi Awurade no nkyɛn! Wunim akwan horow a ɔfaa so boaa me wɔ Efeso.
