2 Timothy 1:7-8

1:7 For God did not give us a Spirit 1  of fear but of power and love and self-control. 1:8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord 2  or of me, a prisoner for his sake, but by 3  God’s power accept your share of suffering 4  for the gospel.

1 tn Or “a spirit,” denoting the human personality under the Spirit’s influence as in 1 Cor 4:21; Gal 6:1; 1 Pet 3:4. But the reference to the Holy Spirit at the end of this section (1:14) makes it likely that it begins this way also, so that the Holy Spirit is the referent.

2 tn Grk “the testimony of our Lord.”

3 tn Or “according to.”

4 tn Grk “suffer hardship together,” implying “join with me in suffering.”
