2 Timothy 2 (WEBP)

[1] You therefore, my child, be strengthened in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
[2] The things which you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit the same things to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
[3] You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
[4] No soldier on duty entangles himself in the affairs of life, that he may please him who enrolled him as a soldier.
[5] Also, if anyone competes in athletics, he isn’t crowned unless he has competed by the rules.
[6] The farmer who labors must be the first to get a share of the crops.
[7] Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things.
[8] Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, of the offspring§ of David, according to my Good News,
[9] in which I suffer hardship to the point of chains as a criminal. But God’s word isn’t chained.
[10] Therefore I endure all things for the chosen ones’ sake, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
[11] This saying is trustworthy: “For if we died with him, we will also live with him.
[12] If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he also will deny us.
[13] If we are faithless, he remains faithful; for he can’t deny himself.”
[14] Remind them of these things, charging them in the sight of the Lord that they don’t argue about words to no profit, to the subverting of those who hear.
[15] Give diligence to present yourself approved by God, a workman who doesn’t need to be ashamed, properly handling the Word of Truth.
[16] But shun empty chatter, for it will go further in ungodliness,
[17] and those words will consume like gangrene, of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus:
[18] men who have erred concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past, and overthrowing the faith of some.
[19] However, God’s firm foundation stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let every one who names the name of the Lord° depart from unrighteousness.”
[20] Now in a large house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of clay. Some are for honor and some for dishonor.
[21] If anyone therefore purges himself from these, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, and suitable for the master’s use, prepared for every good work.
[22] Flee from youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
[23] But refuse foolish and ignorant questionings, knowing that they generate strife.
[24] The Lord’s servant must not quarrel, but be gentle toward all, able to teach, patient,
[25] in gentleness correcting those who oppose him. Perhaps God may give them repentance leading to a full knowledge of the truth,
[26] and they may recover themselves out of the devil’s snare, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

King James w/Strong’s #s

2 Timothy 2 (KJVS)

[1] Thou G4771 therefore G3767, my G3450 son G5043, be strong G1743 (PresPasImpr) in G1722 the grace G5485 that is in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424.
[2] And G2532 the things G3739 that thou hast heard G191 (AorActInd) of G3844 me G1700 among G1223 many G4183 witnesses G3144, the same G5023 commit thou G3908 (Aor2MidInd) to faithful G4103 men G444, who G3748 shall be G2071 (FutInd) able G2425 to teach G1321 (AorActInf) others G2087 also G2532.
[3] Thou G4771 therefore G3767 endure hardness G2553 (AorActImpr), as G5613 a good G2570 soldier G4757 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
[4] No man G3762 that warreth G4754 (PresMidPtc) entangleth himself G1707 (PresPasInd) with the affairs G4230 of [this] life G979; that G2443 he may please G700 (AorActSubj) him who hath chosen him to be a soldier G4758 (AorActPtc).
[5] And G1161 if G1437 a man G5100 also G2532 strive G118 (PresActSubj) for masteries, [yet] is he G4737 not G3756 crowned G4737 (PresPasInd), except G3362 he strive G118 (AorActSubj) lawfully G3545.
[6] The husbandman G1092 that laboureth G2872 (PresActPtc) must be G1163 (PresInd) first G4413 partaker G3335 (PresActInf) of the fruits G2590.
[7] Consider G3539 (PresActImpr) what G3739 I say G3004 (PresActInd); and G1063 the Lord G2962 give G1325 (Aor2ActOpt) thee G4671 understanding G4907 in G1722 all things G3956.
[8] Remember G3421 (PresActImpr) that Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 of G1537 the seed G4690 of David G1138 was raised G1453 (PerfPasPtc) from G1537 the dead G3498 according to G2596 my G3450 gospel G2098:
[9] Wherein G1722 G3739 I suffer trouble G2553 (PresActInd), as G5613 an evil doer G2557, [even] unto G3360 bonds G1199; but G235 the word G3056 of God G2316 is G1210 not G3756 bound G1210 (PerfPasInd).
[10] Therefore G1223 G5124 I endure G5278 (PresActInd) all things G3956 for G1588 the elect’s G1588 sakes G1223, that G2443 they G846 may G5177 also G2532 obtain G5177 (Aor2ActSubj) the salvation G4991 which G3588 is in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424 with G3326 eternal G166 glory G1391.
[11] [It is] a faithful G4103 saying G3056: For G1063 if G1487 we be dead with G4880 (Aor2ActInd) [him], we shall G4800 also G2532 live with G4800 (FutActInd) [him]:
[12] If G1487 we suffer G5278 (PresActInd), we shall G4821 also G2532 reign with G4821 (FutActInd) [him]: if G1487 we deny G720 (PresMidPasDepInd) [him], he also G2548 will deny G720 (FutMidDepInd) us G2248:
[13] If G1487 we believe not G569 (PresActInd), [yet] he G1565 abideth G3306 (PresActInd) faithful G4103: he cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) deny G720 (AorMidDepInf) himself G1438.
[14] Of these things G5023 put [them] in remembrance G5279 (PresActImpr), charging G1263 (PresMidPasDepPtc) [them] before G1799 the Lord G2962 that they strive G3054 not G3361 about words G3054 (PresActInf) to G1519 no G3762 profit G5539, [but] to G1909 the subverting G2692 of the hearers G191 (PresActPtc).
[15] Study G4704 (AorActImpr) to shew G3936 (AorActInf) thyself G4572 approved G1384 unto God G2316, a workman G2040 that needeth not to be ashamed G422, rightly dividing G3718 (PresActPtc) the word G3056 of truth G225.
[16] But G1161 shun G4026 (PresMidImpr) profane G952 [and] vain babblings G2757: for G1063 they will increase G4298 (FutActInd) unto G1909 more G4119 ungodliness G763.
[17] And G2532 their G846 word G3056 will eat G2192 (FutActInd) G3542 as G5613 doth a canker G1044: of whom G3739 is G2076 (PresInd) Hymenaeus G5211 and G2532 Philetus G5372;
[18] Who G3748 concerning G4012 the truth G225 have erred G795 (AorActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc) that the resurrection G386 is past G1096 (Perf2ActInf) already G2235; and G2532 overthrow G396 (PresActInd) the faith G4102 of some G5100.
[19] Nevertheless G3305 the foundation G2310 of God G2316 standeth G2476 (ImpfActInd) (PerfActInd) sure G4731, having G2192 (PresActPtc) this G5026 seal G4973, The Lord G2962 knoweth G1097 (Aor2ActInd) them that are G5607 (PresPtc) his G846. And G2532, Let G868 every one G3956 that nameth G3687 (PresActPtc) the name G3686 of Christ G5547 depart G868 (Aor2ActImpr) from G575 iniquity G93.
[20] But G1161 in G1722 a great G3173 house G3614 there are G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 only G3440 vessels G4632 of gold G5552 and G2532 of silver G693, but G235 also G2532 of wood G3585 and G2532 of earth G3749; and G2532 some G3739 G3303 to G1519 honour G5092, and G1161 some G3739 to G1519 dishonour G819.
[21] If G1437 a man G5100 therefore G3767 purge G1571 (AorActSubj) himself G1438 from G575 these G5130, he shall be G2071 (FutInd) a vessel G4632 unto G1519 honour G5092, sanctified G37 (PerfPasPtc), and G2532 meet G2173 for the master’s use G1203, [and] prepared G2090 (PerfPasPtc) unto G1519 every G3956 good G18 work G2041.
[22] Flee G5343 (PresActImpr) also G1161 youthful G3512 lusts G1939: but G1161 follow G1377 (PresActImpr) righteousness G1343, faith G4102, charity G26, peace G1515, with G3326 them that call on G1941 (PresMidPtc) the Lord G2962 out of G1537 a pure G2513 heart G2588.
[23] But G1161 foolish G3474 and G2532 unlearned G521 questions G2214 avoid G3868 (PresMidPasDepImpr), knowing G1492 (PerfActPtc) that G3754 they do gender G1080 (PresActInd) strifes G3163.
[24] And G1161 the servant G1401 of the Lord G2962 must G1163 (PresInd) not G3756 strive G3164 (PresMidPasDepInf); but G235 be G1511 (PresInf) gentle G2261 unto G4314 all G3956 [men], apt to teach G1317, patient G420,
[25] In G1722 meekness G4236 instructing G3811 (PresActPtc) those that oppose themselves G475 (PresMidPtc); if G3379 God G2316 peradventure G3379 will give G1325 (Aor2ActSubj) them G846 repentance G3341 to G1519 the acknowledging G1922 of the truth G225;
[26] And G2532 [that] they may recover themselves G366 (AorActSubj) out of G1537 the snare G3803 of the devil G1228, who are taken captive G2221 (PerfPasPtc) by G5259 him G846 at G1519 his G1565 will G2307.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Timothy 2 (YLT)

[1] Thou, therefore, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus,
[2] and the things that thou didst hear from me through many witnesses, these things be committing to stedfast men, who shall be sufficient also others to teach;
[3] thou, therefore, suffer evil as a good soldier of Jesus Christ;
[4] no one serving as a soldier did entangle himself with the affairs of life, that him who did enlist him he may please;
[5] and if also any one may strive, he is not crowned, except he may strive lawfully;
[6] the labouring husbandman it behoveth first of the fruits to partake;
[7] be considering what things I say, for the Lord give to thee understanding in all things.
[8] Remember Jesus Christ, raised out of the dead, of the seed of David, according to my good news,
[9] in which I suffer evil-unto bonds, as an evil-doer, but the word of God hath not been bound;
[10] because of this all things do I endure, because of the choice ones, that they also salvation may obtain that is in Christ Jesus, with glory age-during.
[11] Stedfast is the word: For if we died together-we also shall live together;
[12] if we do endure together-we shall also reign together; if we deny him, he also shall deny us;
[13] if we are not stedfast, he remaineth stedfast; to deny himself he is not able.
[14] These things remind them of, testifying fully before the Lord-not to strive about words to nothing profitable, but to the subversion of those hearing;
[15] be diligent to present thyself approved to God-a workman irreproachable, rightly dividing the word of the truth;
[16] and the profane vain talkings stand aloof from, for to more impiety they will advance,
[17] and their word as a gangrene will have pasture, of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus,
[18] who concerning the truth did swerve, saying the rising again to have already been, and do overthrow the faith of some;
[19] sure, nevertheless, hath the foundation of God stood, having this seal, ‘The Lord hath known those who are His,’ and ‘Let him depart from unrighteousness-every one who is naming the name of Christ.’
[20] And 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, then, any one may cleanse himself from these, he shall be a vessel to honour, sanctified and profitable to the master-to every good work having been prepared,
[22] and the youthful lusts flee thou, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, with those calling upon the Lord out of a pure heart;
[23] and the foolish and uninstructed questions be avoiding, having known that they beget strife,
[24] and a servant of the Lord it behoveth not to strive, but to be gentle unto all, apt to teach, patient under evil,
[25] in meekness instructing those opposing-if perhaps God may give to them repentance to an acknowledging of the truth,
[26] and they may awake out of the devil’s snare, having been caught by him at his will.
