Book 54 1 Timothy 001:001 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus according to the commandment of God our Savior, and Christ Jesus our hope; 001:002 to Timothy, my true child in faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 001:003 As I urged you when I was going into Macedonia, stay at Ephesus that you might charge certain men not to teach a different doctrine, 001:004 neither to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which cause disputes, rather than God's stewardship, which is in faith 001:005 but the end of the charge is love, out of a pure heart and a good conscience and unfeigned faith; 001:006 from which things some, having missed the mark, have turned aside to vain talking; 001:007 desiring to be teachers of the law, though they understand neither what they say, nor about what they strongly affirm. 001:008 But we know that the law is good, if a man uses it lawfully, 001:009 as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 001:010 for the sexually immoral, for homosexuals, for slave traders, for liars, for perjurers, and for any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine; 001:011 according to the Good News of the glory of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. 001:012 And I thank him who enabled me, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he counted me faithful, appointing me to service; 001:013 although I was before a blasphemer, a persecutor, and insolent. However, I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 001:014 The grace of our Lord abounded exceedingly with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 001:015 The saying is faithful and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 001:016 However, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first, Jesus Christ might display all his patience, for an example of those who were going to believe in him for eternal life. 001:017 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. 001:018 This charge I commit to you, my child Timothy, according to the prophecies which led the way to you, that by them you may wage the good warfare; 001:019 holding faith and a good conscience; which some having thrust away made a shipwreck concerning the faith; 001:020 of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I delivered to Satan, that they might be taught not to blaspheme. 002:001 I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men: 002:002 for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence. 002:003 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior; 002:004 who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth. 002:005 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 002:006 who gave himself as a ransom for all; the testimony in its own times; 002:007 to which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth in Christ, not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 002:008 I desire therefore that the men in every place pray, lifting up holy hands without anger and doubting. 002:009 In the same way, that women also adorn themselves in decent clothing, with modesty and propriety; not just with braided hair, gold, pearls, or expensive clothing; 002:010 but (which becomes women professing godliness) with good works...
