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
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.
