You have followed what I have taught,
My conduct and my aim in life;
My faith and steadfastness I sought,
My patience in the midst of strife.
Persecutions and suffering,
That has happened so much to me;
I endured for the buffering,
Since the Lord was able to see.
All who will live a godly life,
In Christ shall be persecuted;
Must tolerate toils and strife,
Constantly being refuted.
Evil people and seducers,
Shall be going from bad to worse;
Are the deceptive producers,
While they are spreading their curse.
Deceiving and being deceived,
But continue what you have learned;
Keep the faith in what you believed,
From the salvation you have earned.
Since childhood that you have known,
Acquainted with the Holy Word;
In which has made you wise alone,
For the salvation through the Lord.
All Scripture is breathed out by God,
Profitable for the doctrine;
Righteously to honor and laud,
And for spiritual discipline.
Given as an inspiration,
And for training in righteousness;
To deliver your salvation,
For ridding you of hopelessness.
That those of God may be complete,
Equipped for every good deed;
Works of Satan he can defeat,
Able to plant only good seed.
