|Be mindful that the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the offspring of David, has risen again from the dead, according to my Gospel.
|I labor in this Gospel, even while chained like an evildoer. But the Word of God is not bound.
|I endure all things for this reason: for the sake of the elect, so that they, too, may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with heavenly glory.
|It is a faithful saying: that if we have died with him, we will also live with him.
|If we suffer, we will also reign with him. If we deny him, he will also deny us.
|If we are unfaithful, he remains faithful: he is not able to deny himself.
|Insist on these things, testifying before the Lord. Do not be contentious about words, for this is useful for nothing but the subversion of listeners.
|Be solicitous in the task of presenting yourself before God as a proven and unashamed worker who has handled the Word of Truth correctly.
