2 Timothy 1:9

Called us with a holy calling (kalesantov klhsei agiai).
Probably dative, "to a holy calling." Klhsiv here apparently not the invitation, but the consecrated service, "the upward calling" (Philippians 3:14). See 1 Corinthians 7:20; Ephesians 4:1,4 for the use of kalew with klhsiv. Paul often uses kalew of God's calling men (1 Thessalonians 2:12; 1 Corinthians 1:9; Galatians 1:6; Romans 8:20; 9:11).

Purpose (protesin).
See Romans 9:11; Ephesians 1:11 for protesin.

Which was given (thn doteisan).
First aorist passive articular participle agreeing with xariv (grace), a thoroughly Pauline expression (1 Corinthians 3:10; Romans 12:3,6, etc.), only here in Pastoral Epistles.

Before times eternal (pro xronwn aiwniwn).
See Titus 1:2.
