8 iTherefore do not be ashamed of jthe testimony of our Lord, nor of me kHis prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, 9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, lnot according to our works, but maccording to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus nbefore time began, 10 but ohas now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, 11 pto which I was appointed a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher 3of the Gentiles. 12 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, qfor I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.
13 rHold fast sthe pattern of tsound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 14 That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.
