NASB — 2 Timothy 4 — KJV

“Preach the Word”

1 aI solemnly charge [you] in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to bjudge the living and the dead, and by His cappearing and His kingdom: 2 preach athe word; be ready in season [and] out of season; breprove, rebuke, exhort, with Igreat cpatience and instruction. 3 For athe time will come when they will not endure bsound doctrine; but [wanting] to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 4 and awill turn away their ears from the truth and bwill turn aside to myths. 5 But you, abe sober in all things, bendure hardship, do the work of an cevangelist, fulfill your dministry.

Personal Concerns

9aMake every effort to come to me soon; 10 for aDemas, having loved bthis present Iworld, has deserted me and gone to cThessalonica; Crescens [has gone] to IIdGalatia, eTitus to Dalmatia. 11 aOnly bLuke is with me. Pick up cMark and bring him with you, dfor he is useful to me for service. 12 But aTychicus I have sent to bEphesus. 13 When you come bring the cloak which I left at aTroas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments. 14 aAlexander the coppersmith did me much harm; bthe Lord will repay him according to his deeds. 15 Be on guard against him yourself, for he vigorously opposed our Iteaching.

He exhorteth him to do his duty with all care and diligence,

1 ¶ I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
