1 Timothy 1:16; 1 Timothy 3:14; 1 Timothy 4:7-8; 1 Timothy 6:21
Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy , that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly:
But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
For bodily exercise profiteth little : but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come .
Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen. [The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacatiana.]
