Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 2:19 - Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, “THE [fn]LORD KNOWS THOSE WHO ARE HIS,” and, “EVERYONE WHO NAMES THE NAME OF THE [fn]LORD is to DEPART FROM WICKEDNESS.”

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 2:25 - with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may give them repentance leading to the full knowledge of the truth,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 2:26 - and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive [fn]by him to do his will.
