10 the sexually immoral - both heterosexual and homosexual - slave dealers, liars, perjurers, and anyone who acts contrary to the sound teaching 10 for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers--and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine

12 and I thank the one who has given me strength, the Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, that he considered me trustworthy enough to put me in his service, 12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.

19 armed with trust and a good conscience. By rejecting conscience, some have made shipwreck of their trust; 19 holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith.
20 among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander. I have turned them over to the Adversary, so that they will learn not to insult God. 20 Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.
