2nd Epistle Of Saint Paul To Timothy

Biblical Verses Omitted From Roman Catholic Mass Readings

Chapter 1 verses  15-18  have been omitted from the Mass readings.

[15] Thou knowest this, that all they who are in Asia, are turned away from me: of whom are Phigellus and Hermogenes. [16] The Lord give mercy to the house of Onesiphorus: because he hath often refreshed me, and hath not been ashamed of my chain: [17] But when he was come to Rome, he carefully sought me, and found me. [18] The Lord grant unto him to find mercy of the Lord in that day: and in how many things he ministered unto me at Ephesus, thou very well knowest.

Chapter 2 verses  4-7 and 16-22a  have been omitted from the Mass readings.

[4] No man, being a soldier to God, entangleth himself with secular businesses; that he may please him to whom he hath engaged himself. [5] For he also that striveth for the mastery, is not crowned, except he strive lawfully.[6] The husbandman, that laboureth, must first partake of the fruits. [7] Understand what I say: for the Lord will give thee in all things understanding.

[16] But shun profane and vain babblings: for they grow much towards ungodliness. [17] And their speech spreadeth like a canker: of whom are Hymeneus and Philetus: [18] Who have erred from the truth, saying, that the resurrection is past already, and have subverted the faith of some. [19] But the sure foundation of God standeth firm, having this seal: the Lord knoweth who are his; and let every one depart from iniquity who nameth the name of the Lord.

[20] But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and earth: and some indeed unto honour, but some unto dishonour. [21] If any man therefore shall cleanse himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified and profitable to the Lord, prepared unto every good work. [22] But flee thou youthful desires, and pursue justice, faith, charity, and peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart....

Chapter 3 verses 1-9  have been omitted from the Mass readings.

[1] Know also this, that, in the last days, shall come dangerous times. [2] Men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous, haughty, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, [3] Without affection, without peace, slanderers, incontinent, unmerciful, without kindness, [4] Traitors, stubborn, puffed up, and lovers of pleasures more than of God: [5] Having an appearance indeed of godliness, but denying the power thereof. Now these avoid. [6] For of these sort are they who creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, who are led away with divers desires: [7] Ever learning, and never attaining to the knowledge of the truth. [8] Now as Jannes and Mambres resisted Moses, so these also resist the truth, men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith. [9] But they shall proceed no farther; for their folly shall be manifest to all men, as theirs also was.

Chapter 4 verses 18-22  have been omitted from the Mass readings.

[18] The Lord hath delivered me from every evil work: and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

[19] Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus. [20] Erastus remained at Corinth. And Trophimus I left sick at Miletus. [21] Make haste to come before winter Eubulus and Pudens, and Linus and Claudia, and all the brethren, salute thee. [22] The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.
