God is the only one who can't die. He lives in light that no one can get close to. No one has seen him. No one can see him. Give honor and power to him forever. Amen.
Command people who are rich in this world not to be proud. Tell them not to put their hope in riches. Wealth is so uncertain. Command those who are rich to put their hope in God. He richly provides us with everything to enjoy.
Command the rich to do what is good. Tell them to be rich in doing good things. They must give freely. They must be willing to share.
In that way they will put riches away for themselves. It will provide a firm basis for the next life. Then they will take hold of the life that really is life.
Timothy, guard what God has trusted you with. Turn away from godless chatter. Stay away from opposing ideas that are falsely called knowledge.
Some people believe them. By doing that they have wandered away from the faith. May God's grace be with you.
