TRW Common English Translation

1Accordingly, gazing in, I am carefully testifying from God and from the Lord Jesus Christ of the One intending to divide by decision those living and the dead, according to the revealing of Him all around, and to His royalty. 2Proclaim publicly the word! Stand within! Whether timely or untimely, completely refute! Demand a valuation! Call from alongside in all labored patience and instruction! 3For an occasion will be, at which the ones having sound health of instruction will not be holding themselves up, but according to the longing for the self into themselves, will accumulate all around teachers, the ones being scratched at the ear. 4And indeed they will twist off away from the hearing of the truth, but they will be turned away from it, around the tales. 5But you, be abstaining from wine! In everything, suffer evil! Do work as a true messenger! Carry fully your duty as a servant.
