 "Preach the Word." This was his one responsibility, whatever the state of things around. Indifference, decay, and corruption were increasing, and would increase; but instead of being disheartened, and using this as a reason for inactivity, Timothy was all the more, on this account, to "proclaim the Word." (2 Timothy 4:1-8)
 All times were to be alike to Timothy; his work must never be intermitted, he must be ever on the watch for an opportunity to fulfill his vocation. (2 Timothy 4:1-8)
 "Convict" is the same word as "rebuke" in 1 Tim. 5:20, and signifies to convict of sin by demonstration to the conscience. * "Rebuke" has here its proper force, as may be seen from its use, for example, in Mark 8:33, where the Lord rebuked Peter. It is a word therefore that would seem to contemplate opponents to the truth (2 Timothy 4:1-8)
 "Exhort" is a large word, as is shown by its being translated sometimes "comfort," and sometimes "encourage." Here however "exhort," as we judge, expresses more nearly the apostle's idea; for he adds, "With all longsuffering and teaching." There would therefore be much to encounter in apathy, if not in active opposition, in the service of exhortation; but Timothy was to continue in it spite of all (2 Timothy 4:1-8)
