2 Timothy 1:12

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

2 Timothy 1:14

Context
1:14 Protect that good thing 5  entrusted to you, through the Holy Spirit who lives within us.

1 tn Grk “suffer these things.”

2 tn Or “in whom I have believed.”

3 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.

4 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).

5 sn That good thing (Grk “the good deposit”) refers to the truth of the gospel committed to Timothy (cf. 1 Tim 6:20).
