1 And when he had completed all his words in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum.
2 Now the servant of a certain centurion was dying, due to an illness. And he was very dear to him.
3 And when he had heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to him, petitioning him, so that he would come and heal his servant.
4 And when they had come to Jesus, they petitioned him anxiously, saying to him: "He is worthy that you should provide this to him.
5 For he loves our nation, and he has built a synagogue for us."
6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying: "Lord, do not trouble yourself. For I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof.
7 Because of this, I also did not consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
8 For I also am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."
9 And upon hearing this, Jesus was amazed. And turning to the multitude following him, he said, "Amen I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith."
10 And those who had been sent, upon returning to the house, found that the servant, who had been sick, was now healthy.
1 Timothy 2:1-8
1 Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, in accord with the promise of the life which is in Christ Jesus,
2 to Timothy, most beloved son. Grace, mercy, peace, from God the Father and from Christ Jesus our Lord.
3 I give thanks to God, whom I serve, as my forefathers did, with a pure conscience. For without ceasing I hold the remembrance of you in my prayers, night and day,
4 desiring to see you, recalling your tears so as to be filled with joy,
5 calling to mind the same faith, which is in you unfeigned, which also first dwelt in your grandmother, Lois, and in your mother, Eunice, and also, I am certain, in you.
6 Because of this, I admonish you to revive the grace of God, which is in you by the imposition of my hands.
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of virtue, and of love, and of self-restraint.
8 And so, do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me, his prisoner. Instead, collaborate with the Gospel in accord with the virtue of God,
