Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme .
But if I tarry long , that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
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 .
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.
But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home , and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid .
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
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.
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.]
