From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
Desiring to be teachers of the law ; understanding neither what they say , nor whereof they affirm .
According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust .
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck :
Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme .
Who will have all men to be saved , and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
Forbidding to marry , and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained .
For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach , because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
He is proud , knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after , they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called , and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
Which in his times he shall shew , who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings , and Lord of lords ;
Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen , nor can see : to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
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.]
