2:2 And what things thou hast heard of me by many witnesses, betake thou these to faithful men, which shall be able also to teach other men. And what things thou hast heard of me, many bearing witness, the same deliver to faithful men, which are apt to teach other. And what things thou hast heard of me, by many witnesses, the same deliver to faithful men, which shall be able to teach other also. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

2:4 No man holding knighthood to God, enwrappeth himself with worldly needs, that he please to him, to whom he hath proved himself. No man that warreth, entangleth himself with worldly business, and that because he would please him that hath chosen him to be a soldier. No man that warreth, entangleth himself with the affairs of this life, because he would please him that hath chosen him to be a soldier. No man that warreth, entangleth himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
2:5 For why and he that striveth in a battle, shall not be crowned, but he fight lawfully. And though a man strive for a mastery, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. And if any man also strive for a mastery, he is not crowned, except he strive as he ought to do. And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned except he strive lawfully.
2:6 It behooveth an earth-tiller to receive first of the fruits. The husbandman that laboureth must first receive of the fruits. The husbandman must labour before he receive the fruits. The husbandman that laboureth, must be first partaker of the fruits.
2:7 Understand what things I say. For the Lord shall give to thee understanding in all things. Consider what I say. The lord give thee understanding in all things.

2:9 in which I travail unto bonds, as evil working, but the word of God is not bound. wherein I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even unto bonds. but the word of god was not bound. Wherein I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even unto bonds: but the word of God is not bound. Wherein I suffer trouble as an evildoer, even unto bonds: but the word of God is not bound.
2:10 Therefore I sustain all things for the chosen, that also they get the health, that is in Christ Jesus, with heavenly glory. Herefore I suffer all things, for the elect’s sakes, that they might also obtain that health which is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory. Therefore I suffer all things, for the elect’s sake, that they might also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory. Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.
2:11 A true word is this that I say, that if we be dead together to the world, also we shall live together in bliss; It is a true saying, if we be dead with him, we also shall live with him.

2:12 if we suffer, and we shall reign together with Christ; if we deny him, and he shall deny us; If we be patient, we shall also reign with him. If we deny him, he also shall deny us.

2:13 if we believe not, he dwelleth faithful, he may not deny himself. If we believe not, yet abideth he faithful. He cannot deny himself. If we believe not, yet abideth he faithful: he cannot deny himself. If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful, he cannot deny himself.
2:14 Forsooth these things I admonish, witnessing before God. Do not thou strive in words; for to nothing it is profitable, but to the subverting of men that hear. Of these things put them in remembrance, and testify before the lord, that they strive not about words, which is to no profit, but to pervert the hearers.

But shun profane and vain babblings, for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

2:19 But the firm foundament of God standeth, having this mark, The Lord knoweth which be his, and, Each man that nameth the name of the Lord, depart from wickedness. But the sure ground of god remaineth, and hath this seal: the lord knoweth them that are his, and let every man that calleth on the name of Christ, depart from iniquity. But the foundation of God remaineth sure, and hath this seal, The Lord, knoweth who are his, and, Let every one that calleth on the Name of Christ, depart from iniquity. Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having the seal, the Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the Name of Christ, depart from iniquity.
2:20 But in a great house be not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of tree and of earth; and so some be into honour, and some into despite.
