16 But for this reason mercy was shewn me, that in me, [the] first, Jesus Christ might display the whole long-suffering, for a delineation of a those about to believe on him to life eternal.

References for 1 Timothy 1:16

    • k 1:16 - As 'outline,' 2Tim. 1.13. It is a mistake to confine delineation to long-suffering, and so make 'of' mean 'for:' 'for those,' &c. Paul was a delineation of Christ's ways in their case, even, I doubt not, in the case of the rebellious Jews hereafter: the whole long-suffering was in Paul's case, so as to picture every case. In those who companied with Christ when alive this was not so, though the grace was really the same; but there was not the same showing forth of it.
