This charge I commit to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with the prophetic utterances which pointed to you, that inspired by them you may wage the good warfare,
holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting conscience, certain persons have made shipwreck of their faith,
among them Hymenae'us and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme.
