|2 Timothy 2: 8 - 13
||Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead, descended from David, as preached in my gospel,
||the gospel for which I am suffering and wearing fetters like a criminal. But the word of God is not fettered.
||Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain salvation in Christ Jesus with its eternal glory.
||The saying is sure: If we have died with him, we shall also live with him;
||if we endure, we shall also reign with him; if we deny him, he also will deny us;
||if we are faithless, he remains faithful -- for he cannot deny himself.
