2 Timothy 2:14; 2 Timothy 2:23–26

A Worker Approved by God

14 Remind them of these things, and ycharge them before God1 znot to quarrel about words, awhich does no good, but only ruins the hearers.


23 Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant qcontroversies; you know that they breed quarrels. 24 And rthe Lord’s servant1 must not be quarrelsome but skind to everyone, table to teach, patiently enduring evil, 25 correcting his opponents uwith gentleness. God vmay perhaps grant them repentance wleading to a knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from xthe snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.
