The King James Version Bible

2 Timothy 4:6-15

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

  2. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

  3. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

  4. Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me:

  5. For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

  6. Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee: for he is profitable to me for the ministry.

  7. And Tychicus have I sent to Ephesus.

  8. The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments.

  9. Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:

  10. Of whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.
