to what you have learned and believed,
because you know from whom you learned it,
and that from infancy
you have known the sacred Scriptures,
which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation
through faith in Christ Jesus.
"All Scripture is inspired by God
and is useful for teaching,
and for training in righteousness,
so that one who belongs to God
may be competent,
equipped for every good work.
"I charge you
in the presence of God
and of Christ Jesus,
who will judge the living and the dead,
and by his appearing
and his kingly power:
proclaim the word;
whether it is convenient or inconvenient;
through all patience and teaching."
(today's Epistle 2 Timothy 3:14-4:2)
