2 Timothy 2:14–19
A Worker Approved by God
14 Remind them of these things, and charge them before God1 not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. 15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,2 a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 16 But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness, 17 and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 who have swerved from the truth, saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some. 19 But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.”
