Wesley's Notes for 2 Timothy 1:4


1:4 Being mindful of thy tears - Perhaps frequently shed, as well as at the apostle's last parting with him.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 1:4


2Ti 1:4 Greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of thy tears. There is something pathetic in this language. The lonely prisoner calls to him the tears of Timothy at their last parting, and feels a yearning desire to see and counsel him face to face once more.

    2 Timothy is a good book to read, because God inspired Apostle Paul through the Holy Spirit to write it. Reading all of Paul's episode is inspiring for what he had to go through, even the beating and rejection from his other Apostles. All we have to do is read Romans through Philemon and find out why. Please let this go through in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. ......
