1 Timothy 1:3-11 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
3 As I urged you aupon my departure for 1Macedonia, bremain on at 2Ephesus so that you may instruct certain men not to 3teach strange doctrines, 4 nor to cpay attention to 4myths and endless 5genealogies, which give rise to mere 6speculation rather than 7furthering dthe administration of God which is by faith. 5 But the goal of our e8instruction is love 9from a pure heart and a 10good conscience and a sincere 11faith. 6 For some men, straying from these things, have turned aside to 12fruitless discussion, 7 13wanting to be 14teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions. 8 But we know that 15the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, 9 realizing the fact that 16law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and 17rebellious, for the 18ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and 19profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers 10 fand g20immoral men hand 21homosexuals iand 22kidnappers jand 23liars kand 24perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to 25sound teaching, 11 according to 26the glorious gospel of 27the blessed God, with which I have been 28entrusted.
