|24||And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,|
|25||In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;|
|26||And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.|
2 Tim 2:24-26, (MKJV)
24 But the servant of the Lord must not strive, but to be gentle to all, apt to teach, patient, 25 in meekness instructing those who oppose, if perhaps God will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth, 26 and that they awake out of the snare of the Devil, having been taken captive by him, so as to do the will of that one.
2 Tim 2:24-26, (NASB)
24 The Lord's bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, 25 with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.
2 Tim 2:24-26, (LITV)
24 But a slave of the Lord ought not to quarrel, but to be gentle towards all, apt to teach, forbearing, 25 in meekness teaching those who have opposed, if perhaps God may give them repentance for a full knowledge of the truth, 26 and they having regained senses out of the snare of the devil, being captured by him to do the will of that One.
