Second Timothy-Timtheous Bet


Second Timothy-Timtheous Bet

To A Shepherd of Yisrael

1 Shaul, a sholiach of YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach by the will of YHUH, according to the promise of chayim, which is in YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach,

2 To Timtheous, my dearly beloved son: Unmerited chen, rachamim and shalom, from Abba YHUH and YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach our Master.

3 I give hodu to YHUH, whom I served from boyhood with a clear conscience, that without ceasing, I have remembered you in my tefillot during maariv and shacrit;

4 Greatly desiring to see you, being mindful of your tears, that I may be filled with simcha;

5 When I call to remembrance the sincere emunah that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your eema Eunike; and I am persuaded in you also.

6 For this reason I remind you to stir up the gift of YHUH, which is in you by the laying on of my hands.

7 For YHUH has not given us The Ruach of fear; but of power and of ahava and of a sound mind.

8 Be not ashamed of the testimony of our Master, nor of me His eved: but be a partaker of the afflictions of The Besorah according to The Power of YHUH;

9 Who has saved us and called us with a kadosh calling, not according to our man-made works, but according to His own purpose and chen, which was given to us in YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach even before the olam began,

10 But now has been made manifest by the appearing of our Savior YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach, who has abolished death and has revealed chayim and immortality through The Besorah:

11 To which I am appointed a proclaimer and a sholiach and a moreh to the goyim.

12 For which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know in whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to take care of me until that yom.

13 Hold fast to the form of sound words, which you have heard of me, in emunah and in the ahava that is in YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach.

14 That tov thing which was committed to you shomer by The Ruach Hakodesh who dwells in us.

15 This you know, that all those who are in Asia have turned away from me; including Phugellos and Hermogenes.

16 YHUH give rachamim to the bayit of Onesiphoros; for he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my imprisonment:

17 But, when he was in Romiyah, he searched me out very diligently and found me.

18 YHUH grant to him that he may find rachamim in that yom: and in all the derachot he attended to me at Ephsiyah, you know very well.

2 You therefore, my son, be strong in the unmerited chen that is in YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach.

2 And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, the same commit to other faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

3 You therefore endure hardships, with us as a tov soldier of YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach.

4 No man that goes to battle entangles himself with the affairs of this chayim; so that he may please Him who has chosen him to be a soldier.

5 And if anyone competes in a contest, he cannot receive the keter, except he competes by the rules.

6 The farmer that labors must be the first one to eat of his fruits.

7 Consider what I say; and YHUH give you da’at in all things.

8 Remember that YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach of the zera of Dawid was raised from the dead according to my Besorah:

9 For which I suffer trouble, as a criminal, even imprisonment; but The Word of YHUH is not imprisoned.

10 Therefore I endure all things for the chosen people Yisrael, that they may also obtain the salvation that is in YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach with eternal tifereth.

11 It is a faithful saying: For if we are dead with Him, we shall also live with Him:

12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him: if we deny Him, He also will deny us:

13 If we believe not, yet He abides faithful: He cannot deny Himself.

14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before YHUH that they not engage in word battles – that is useless – since it subverts the hearers of The Word.

15 Be eager to present yourself acceptable to YHUH, a servant not ashamned, accurately handling correctly the approach to The Emet.  

16 But avoid profane and empty chatter: for they will increase to more wickedness.

17 And their word will eat through people like gangrene: Humenaios and Philetos are of this group;

18 Who concerning the emet have gone astray, saying that the resurrection is past already; and have overthrown the emunah of some.

19 Nevertheless the foundation of The Master YHUH stands firm, having this seal; The Master YHUH knows those who are His. And, Let everyone that names the Name of Moshiach depart from Torah breaking.

20 But in a great bayit there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to kavod and some to no kavod.

21 If a man therefore cleanses himself from unclean matters, he shall be a vessel of kavod, kadosh and fit for The Master’s use and prepared for every tov mitzvah.

22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow tzedakah, emunah, ahava, shalom, with them that call on YHUH out of a pure lev.

23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do breed arguments.

24 And the eved of YHUH must not quarrel; but be gentle to all men, able to teach, patient,

25 In meekness instructing those that oppose him; so YHUH somehow will give them teshuvah to their acknowledging of the emet;

26 And that they may come to their senses and leave the snare of s.a.tan, who has taken them captive to do his will.

3 This know also, that in the yamim ha-acharonim perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unclean,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, addicts to lust, fierce, despisers of those that are tov,

4 Traitors, hasty, proud and arrogant, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of YHUH;

5 Having a form of a Shabbat-guarding pious lifestyle, but denying The Power of it: from such turn away.

6 For these are the people who creep into and infect entire houses away from emunah and lead captive women weighed down with sins, who are being led away with various lusts,

7 Always learning and never able to come to the da’at of the emet.

8 Now as Yannes and Yambres opposed Moshe, so do these also resist the emet: people of corrupt minds, far from the emunah.

9 But they shall go no further: for their folly shall be manifest to all men, as was that of those men.

10 But you have fully known my teaching, manner of chayim, purpose, emunah, endurance, ahava, patience,

11 The persecutions and afflictions, that came to me at Antioch, at Ikonion, at Lustra; which persecutions I endured: but out of them all YHUH delivered me.

12 Yes and all that will live a Shabbat-guarding pious lifestyle in YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach shall suffer persecution.

13 But evil men and enchanters shall get worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

14 But you on the other hand continue in the things that you have learned and have been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them;

15 And that from a child you have known the Keetvay HaKadosh, which are able to make you wise about your salvation through emunah which is in YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach.

16 All the Keetvay HaKadosh are given by the inspiration of YHUH and are profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, as Torah in tzedakah:

17 That the man of YHUH may be perfect, fully equipped for all tov mitzvoth.

4 I charge you therefore before YHUH and The Master YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach, who shall judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His malchut;

2 Proclaim The Word; be ready to do so during moadeem and at regular times; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all patience and teaching.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound teaching; but after their own lusts shall they add for themselves extra teachers, tickling the ears.

4 And they shall turn away their ears from the emet and shall be turned to made up stories.

5 But shomer yourself in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of a proclaimer, fulfill your service.

6 For I am now ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand.

7 I have fought a tov fight, I have finished my course and I have kept the emunah:

8 And now there is laid up for me the keter of tzedakah, which YAHUSHA-YHUH, The Tzadik-Shophet, shall give me on that yom: and not to me only, but to all in Yisrael that also love His appearing.

9 Do your best to come shortly to me:

10 For Demas has forsaken me, having loved the olam hazeh and is departed to Thesloniqyah; Crescens to Galutyah, Teitus to Dalmatyah.

11 Only Luka is with me. Take Moshe-Markus and bring him with you: for he is profitable to me for the service.

12 And Tuchikos have I sent to Ephsiyah.

13 The scroll carrier that I left at Troas with Karpus, when you come, bring with you and also the scrolls, specifically the parchment scrolls.

14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil:YHUH reward him according to his works:

15 You too be careful also, for he has greatly withstood our words.

16 At my first answer no man stood with me, but all men forsook me: I make tefillah that it may not be laid to their charge.

17 Notwithstanding YHUH stood with me and strengthened me; that by me the proclaiming might be fully known and that all the goyim might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

18 And YHUH shall deliver me from every evil work and will preserve me for His heavenly malchut; to Him be tifereth le-olam-va-ed.

19 Salute Prisca and Aqulas and the bayit of Onesiphoros.

20 Erastos stayed in Corintyah: but Trophimos have I left at Miletos sick.

21 Do your best to come before winter. Eubulos greets you and Pudes and Linos and Klaudia and all the Yisraelite brothers.

22 The Master YAHUSHA-YHUH Ha Moshiach be with your ruach. Unmerited chen be with you. Ahmein. X
