1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to {k} light through the gospel:

2Ti 1:11

1:11 {5} Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.

2Ti 1:12

1:12 {6} For the which cause I also suffer these things: {7} nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

2Ti 2:11

2:11 {8} [It is] a faithful saying: For if we be {c} dead with [him], we shall also live with [him]:
