New Testament - Timothy 2
22 Keep away from all the lusts of youth, and follow after righteousness, faith, love, peace, with those who call on our Lord with a pure heart.
23 Keep away from foolish disputes which do not educate; you know they cause strife.
24 A servant of our Lord must not quarrel, but be gentle to all men, apt at teaching and patient,
25 So that he may discipline gently those who argue against him; and perhaps God will grant them repentance and they will know the truth,
26 And come to themselves, and be saved from the trap of Satan, by whom they have been drawn to his will.
1 KNOW this, that in the last days disastrous times will come.
2 And men shall be lovers of themselves and lovers of money, proud, conceited, blasphemers, disobedient to their own people, ungrateful, wicked,
3 False accusers, addicts to lust, brutal, haters of good things,
4 Traitors, hasty, boasters, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but far from the power of God; from such turn away.
1 I SOLEMNLY charge you before God and our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead when his kingdom is come,
2 Preach the word; and stand by it zealously in season and out of season; rebuke, reprove, through all patience and teaching.
3 For the time will come when men will not listen to sound doctrine; but they will add for themselves extra teachers according to their desires, being lured by enticing words;
4 And they will turn away their ears from the truth, and they will turn to fables.
5 But you must be awake to all things, endure hardships, do the work of a preacher, and fulfil your ministry.
6 From henceforth I am ready to die, and the time of my departure is at hand.
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my race, I have kept my faith.
