In 2 Timothy 4:7 (and 1 Timothy 6:12) there’s a famous phrase "fight the good fight." I can find a number of examples (here, here, and possibly here) where this seems to be quoted as "worthwhile fight" or "well worthwhile fight" but I can’t find any translations that use this phrasing. Does anyone know the source of this phrasing? If it’s not in a major translation, perhaps it comes from a well-known commentary or sermon? The earliest usage of this phrase in the context of Timothy that I can find is George Betts Swann’s Sermons Volume 4 from 1920.
