Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1Paulus, an Apostle of Yeshua The Messiah, by the will of God, and by The Promise of life, which is in Yeshua The Messiah,
2To beloved son Timotheaus: Grace, love and peace from God The Father and from Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah.
3I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with a pure conscience; I constantly remember you in my prayers, night and day, 4And I long to see you and I remember your tears, so that I am filled with joy 5By the recollection which I have of your true faith, which began first in your mother's mother,* Lois, and in your mother Euniqay, and I am convinced that it is in you also.
8Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of Our Lord, neither of me his prisoner, but bear evils with The Gospel by the power of God, 9He who has given us life and has called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his will and the grace which has been given to us in Yeshua The Messiah before the time of the world,* 10And is now revealed by the revelation of Our Lifegiver, Yeshua The Messiah, who has destroyed death and has displayed life and indestructibility by The Gospel, 11He by whom I am appointed a preacher, an Apostle and a teacher of the Gentiles. 12Therefore, I endure these things, and I am not ashamed, for I know in whom I have believed and I am convinced that he is able to keep my trust for me until that day.
15For you know this, that all those who are in Asia have turned away from me, of whom are Pugelos and Hermogenes. 16May Our Lord give compassion to the house of Onesiphorus, who many times has refreshed me and was not ashamed of the chains of my bondage; 17But also when he came to Rome, he sought me with diligence and found me. 18May Our Lord grant that he find mercy with Our Lord in that day; and how that he ministered to me, especially in Ephesaus, you know.
