2 Timothy 1:11-12

Context
1:11 For this gospel 1  I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher. 2  1:12 Because of this, in fact, I suffer as I do. 3  But I am not ashamed, because I know the one in whom my faith is set 4  and I am convinced that he is able to protect what has been entrusted to me 5  until that day. 6 

1 tn Grk “for which.”

2 tc Most mss (א2 C D F G Ψ 1739 1881 Ï latt sy co) have ἐθνῶν (eqnwn, “of the Gentiles”) after “teacher.” The shorter reading has poorer external credentials (א* A I 1175 pc), but is preferred because ἐθνῶν probably represents a gloss added by copyists familiar with 1 Tim 2:7. There is no easy explanation for the omission of the word if it were original here.

3 tn Grk “suffer these things.”

4 tn Or “in whom I have believed.”

5 sn What has been entrusted to me (Grk “my entrustment,” meaning either (1) “what I have entrusted to him” [his life, destiny, etc.] or (2) “what he has entrusted to me” [the truth of the gospel]). The parallel with v. 14 and use of similar words in the pastorals (1 Tim 6:20; 2 Tim 2:2) argue for the latter sense.

6 sn That day is a reference to the day when Paul would stand before Christ to give account for his service (cf. 2 Tim 1:18; 1 Cor 3:13; 2 Cor 5:9-10).
