2 Timothy 1:14-18

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

1:15 You know that everyone in the province of Asia 2  deserted me, including Phygelus and Hermogenes. 1:16 May the Lord grant mercy to the family of Onesiphorus, because he often refreshed me and was not ashamed of my imprisonment. 3  1:17 But when he arrived in Rome, 4  he eagerly searched for me and found me. 1:18 May the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that day! 5  And you know very well all the ways he served me in Ephesus. 6 

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

Asia lay to the west of the region of Phrygia and Galatia. The words “the province of” are supplied to indicate to the modern reader that this does not refer to the continent of Asia.

3 tn Grk “my chain.”
