Shukrani Na Kutiwa Moyo

31:3 Rum 1:10; Efe 1:16; Mdo 22:3; 23:1; 24:14; 27:23; Gal 1:14Ninamshukuru Mungu, ninayemtumikia kwa dhamiri safi, kama walivyofanya baba zangu, ninapokukumbuka usiku na mchana katika maombi yangu. 41:4 Mdo 20:37; 2Tim 4:9; 4:21Nikiyakumbuka machozi yako, ninatamani sana kukuona ili nipate kujawa na furaha. 51:5 1Tim 1:5; 2Tim 3:15Nimekuwa nikiikumbuka imani yako ya kweli, waliokuwa nayo bibi yako Loisi na mama yako Eunike na ambayo mimi ninasadiki sasa wewe pia unayo. 61:6 Mdo 6:6; 1The 5:19; 1Tim 4:14Kwa sababu hii nakukumbusha uchochee ile karama ya Mungu, iliyowekwa ndani yako nilipokuwekea mikono yangu. 71:7 Yer 42:11; Rum 8:15; Lk 24:49; Mdo 1:8Maana Mungu hakutupa roho ya woga, bali roho ya nguvu, ya upendo na ya moyo wa kiasi.

81:8 Rum 1:16; Efe 3:1; 2Tim 2:3-9; 4:5Kwa hiyo usione haya kushuhudia kuhusu Bwana wetu, wala usinionee haya mimi niliye mfungwa kwa ajili yake. Bali uishiriki pamoja nami taabu ya Injili, kwa kadiri ya nguvu ya Mungu, 91:9 Rum 8:28; 1Tim 1:1; Tit 3:4; 1The 4:7; Ebr 3:1; Rum 3:20; 9:11; Tit 3:5ambaye alituokoa na kutuita katika mwito mtakatifu: si kwa kadiri ya matendo yetu mema bali kwa sababu ya kusudi lake mwenyewe na neema yake. Neema hii tulipewa katika Kristo Yesu tangu milele. 101:10 Efe 1:9; 1Kor 15:26, 54; Rum 16:26; Kol 1:26; Tit 1:3; 1Pet 1:20; Ebr 2:14Lakini sasa imefunuliwa kwa kudhihirishwa kwake Mwokozi wetu, Kristo Yesu, ambaye amebatilisha mauti na kuleta uzima na kutokufa kwa njia ya Injili. 111:11 1Tim 2:7; Mdo 9:15; Efe 3:7, 8; 2Tim 4:17Nami nimewekwa kuwa mhubiri, mtume na mwalimu wa Injili hii. 121:12 1Tim 6:20; 1Kor 1:8; Efe 3:1; 2Tim 2:9; 1Pet 4:19; 1Tim 6:20; 2Tim 4:8Hii ndiyo sababu ninateseka namna hii, lakini sioni haya kwa maana ninamjua yeye niliyemwamini, na kusadiki ya kuwa anaweza kukilinda kile nilichokiweka amana kwake hadi siku ile.

131:13 Tit 1:9; 1Tim 1:14Shika kwa uthabiti kielelezo cha mafundisho yenye uzima yale uliyoyasikia kwangu, pamoja na imani na upendo katika Kristo Yesu. 141:14 Rum 8:9; 1Tim 6:20; Rum 8:11Ilinde ile amana uliyokabidhiwa kwa Roho Mtakatifu akaaye ndani yetu.

151:15 2Tim 4:10-16, 19; Mdo 19:10Unajua ya kuwa watu wote katika Asia wameniacha, miongoni mwao wamo Filego na Hermogene.

161:16 Mt 5:7; 2Tim 4:19; Flm 7; Mdo 28:20Bwana akawahurumie watu wa nyumbani mwa Onesiforo, kwa sababu aliniburudisha mara kwa mara wala hakuionea aibu minyororo yangu. 17Badala yake, alipokuwa Rumi, alinitafuta kwa bidii mpaka akanipata. 181:18 Ebr 6:10; Mt 25:34-40; 2The 1:10; 1Tim 1:18Bwana na amjalie kupata rehema zake siku ile! Nawe unajua vyema jinsi alivyonisaidia huko Efeso.

King James Version

2 Timothy 1:1-18

1Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus, 2To Timothy, my dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 3I 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; 4Greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of thy tears, that I may be filled with joy; 5When 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. 6Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. 7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 8Be 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; 9Who 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, 10But 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: 11Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. 12For 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. 13Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 14That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy Ghost which dwelleth in us. 15This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes. 16The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus; for he oft refreshed me, and was not ashamed of my chain: 17But, when he was in Rome, he sought me out very diligently, and found me. 18The 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.
