1 Timothy 6:3

Teacheth a different doctrine (eterodidaskalei). See Acts 1:3 for this verb, present active indicative here in condition of first class. Consenteth not (mh prosercetai). Also condition of first class with mh instead of ou. Prosercomai (old verb, to come to, to approach, with dative) is common enough in N.T. ( Hebrews 4:16 ; Hebrews 7:25 , etc.), but in the metaphorical sense of coming to one's ideas, assenting to, here only in N.T., but is so used in Philo and Irenaeus (Ellicott). Sound words (ugiainousin logoi). See Hebrews 1:10 for ugiainw. The words of our Lord Jesus Christ (toi tou kuriou hmwn Ihsou Cristou). Either subjective genitive (the words from the Lord Jesus, a collection of his sayings in Lock's opinion like Hebrews 5:18 ; Acts 20:35 , at least in the Spirit of Jesus as Acts 16:7 ; 1 Corinthians 11:23 ) or objective genitive about Jesus like 2 Timothy 1:8 ; 1 Corinthians 1:18 . According to godliness (kata eusebeian). Promoting (designed for) godliness as in Titus 1:1 .
