|2 Timothy chapter 1|
||Paul's love to Timothy, and the unfeigned faith which was in Timothy himself, his mother, and grandmother.
||He is exhorted to stir up the gift of God which was in him;
||to be stedfast and patient in persecution;
||and to persist in the form and truth of that doctrine which he had learned of him.
||Phygellus and Hermogenes, and such like, are noted, and Onesiphorus is highly commended.
|2 Timothy chapter 2|
||Timothy is exhorted again to constancy and perseverance, and to do the duty of a faithful servant of the Lord in dividing the word aright, and staying profane and vain babblings.
||Of Hymenaeus and Philetus.
||The foundation of the Lord is sure.
||He is taught whereof to beware, and what to follow after, and in what manner the servant of the Lord ought to behave himself.
|2 Timothy chapter 3|
||He advertises him of the times to come;
||describes the enemies of the truth;
||propounds unto him his own example;
||and commends the holy scriptures;
|2 Timothy chapter 4|
||He exhorts him to do his duty with all care and diligence;
||certifies him of the nearness of his death;
||wills him to come speedily unto him, and to bring Marcus with him, and certain things which he wrote for;
||warns him to beware of Alexander the smith.
||informs him what had befallen him at his first answering;
||and soon after he concludes.
