2 Timothy 4:5-8

Context
4:5 You, however, be self-controlled 1  in all things, endure hardship, do an evangelist’s work, fulfill your ministry. 4:6 For I am already being poured out as an offering, and the time for me to depart 2  is at hand. 4:7 I have competed well; 3  I have finished the race; I have kept the faith! 4:8 Finally the crown of righteousness is reserved for me. The Lord, the righteous Judge, will award it to me in that day – and not to me only, but also to all who have set their affection on 4  his appearing.

1 tn Or “sober,” “temperate.”

2 tn Grk “of my departure.”

3 sn The expression I have competed well (Grk “I have competed the good competition”) uses words that may refer to a race or to a boxing or wrestling match: “run the good race” or “fight the good fight.” The similar phrase in 1 Tim 1:18 uses a military picture and is more literally “war the good warfare.”

4 tn Grk “all who have loved.”
