11 [a]Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and Apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
12 [b]For the which cause I also suffer these things, [c]but I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed to him against that day.
13 [d]Keep the true pattern of the wholesome words, which thou hast heard of me in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 1:12He confirmeth his Apostleship by a strange argument, to wit, because the world could not abide it, and therefore it persecuted him that preached it.
2 Timothy 1:12By setting his own example before us, he showeth us how it may be, that we shall not be ashamed of the cross of Christ, to wit, if we be sure that God both can and will keep the salvation which he hath as it were laid up in store by himself for us against that day.
2 Timothy 1:13He showeth wherein he ought to be most constant, to wit, both in the doctrine itself, the abridgment whereof is faith and charity, and next in the manner of teaching it, a lively pattern and shape whereof Timothy knew in the Apostle.
