thou therefore my son be strong inthe grace that is in CHRIST JESUS . 2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witness, the same commit thou to faithful men , who be able to teach others also. 3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as good soldier of JESUS CHRIST. 4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. 5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. 6 The husbandman that laboureth must first partaker of the fruits. 7 Consider what I say, and the LORD gave thee understanding in all things. 8 Remember that JESUS CHRIST of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel. 9 Wherein I suffer trouble as an evil doer. 2 TIMOTHY 2 :1- 8
