3 Beloved, while using all diligence to write to you concerning our 1common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you and exhort you to earnestly 2acontend for the 3faith once for all delivered to the bsaints.
33 Not subjective faith as our believing but objective faith as our belief, referring to the things we believe in, the contents of the New Testament as our faith (Acts 6:7; 1 Tim. 1:19; 3:9; 4:1; 5:8; 6:10, 21; 2 Tim. 3:8; 4:7; Titus 1:13), in which we believe for our common salvation. This faith, not any doctrine, has been delivered once for all to the saints. For this faith we should earnestly contend (1 Tim. 6:12).
