1 Timothy 1:12-17 HNV

12 And I thank him who enabled me, Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, because he counted me faithful, appointing me to service;
13 although I was before a blasphemer, a persecutor, and insolent. However, I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
14 The grace of our Lord abounded exceedingly with faith and love which is in Messiah Yeshua.
15 The saying is faithful, and worthy of all acceptance, that Messiah Yeshua came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
16 However, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me as chief, Yeshua the Messiah might display all his patience, for an example of those who were going to believe in him to eternal life.
17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amein.
