Thanksgiving and Charge to Timothy
3 I am thankful to God, whom I have served with a clear conscience as my ancestors did,[a] when I remember you in my prayers as I do constantly night and day.[b] 4 As I remember your tears, I long to see you,[c] so that I may be filled with joy.Read full chapter
- 2 Timothy 1:3 tn Grk “from my ancestors.”
- 2 Timothy 1:3 tn Or “as I do constantly. By night and day I long to see you…”
- 2 Timothy 1:4 tn Grk “longing to see you, remembering your tears” (as a continuation of the preceding clause). Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.
