2 Timothy 1:8

1:8 So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord 1  or of me, a prisoner for his sake, but by 2  God’s power accept your share of suffering 3  for the gospel.

2 Timothy 1:12

1:12 Because of this, in fact, I suffer as I do. 4  But I am not ashamed, because I know the one in whom my faith is set 5  and I am convinced that he is able to protect what has been entrusted to me 6  until that day. 7 

1 tn Grk “the testimony of our Lord.”

2 tn Or “according to.”

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

4 tn Grk “suffer these things.”

5 tn Or “in whom I have believed.”

6 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.

7 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).
