Bible: 2 Timothy 4:16-18

4:16 At my first defense no one appeared in my support; instead they all deserted me – may they not be held accountable for it. 4:17 But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message 1  would be fully proclaimed 2  for all the Gentiles to hear. And so I was delivered from the lion’s mouth! 4:18 The Lord will deliver me from every evil deed and will bring me safely 3  into his heavenly kingdom. To him 4  be glory for ever and ever! 5  Amen.
