Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descendant of David, according to my gospel,

An Unashamed Worker

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 2:16 - But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for [fn]it will lead to further ungodliness,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 2:17 - and their [fn]talk will spread like [fn]gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus,
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 2:18 - men who have gone astray from the truth, claiming that the resurrection has already taken place; and they are jeopardizing the faith of some.
Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 2:19 - Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His;” and, “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to keep away from wickedness.”

Unchecked Copy Box2Ti 2:25 - with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the 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.
