2 to Timotheus, [my] true child in faith: grace, mercy, peace, from God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 2 To Timothy my true son in the faith: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
3 Even as I begged thee to remain in Ephesus, [when I was] going to Macedonia, that thou mightest enjoin some not to teach other doctrines, 3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer
4 nor to turn their minds to fables and interminable genealogies, which bring questionings rather than [further] God's dispensation, which [is] in faith. 4 nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God's work--which is by faith.
5 But the end of what is enjoined is love out of a pure heart and a good conscience and unfeigned faith; 5 The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
6 which [things] some having missed, have turned aside to vain discourse, 6 Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk.
7 desiring to be law-teachers, not understanding either what they say or concerning what they [so] strenuously affirm. 7 They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.
8 Now we know that the law [is] good if any one uses it lawfully, 8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly.
9 knowing this, that law has not its application to a righteous person, but to [the] lawless and insubordinate, to [the] impious and sinful, to [the] unholy and profane, to smiters of fathers and smiters of mothers; to murderers, 9 We also know that law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious; for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,
10 fornicators, sodomites, kidnappers, liars, perjurers; and if any other thing is opposed to sound teaching, 10 for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers--and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine
11 according to the glad tidings of the glory of the blessed God, with which *I* have been entrusted. 11 that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.
12 [And] I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me power, that he has counted me faithful, appointing to ministry him 12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.
13 who before was a blasphemer and persecutor, and an insolent overbearing [man]: but mercy was shewn me because I did it ignorantly, in unbelief. 13 Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.
14 But the grace of our Lord surpassingly over-abounded with faith and love, which [is] in Christ Jesus. 14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
15 Faithful [is] the word, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom *I* am [the] first. 15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst.
16 But for this reason mercy was shewn me, that in me, [the] first, Jesus Christ might display the whole long-suffering, for a delineation of those about to believe on him to life eternal. 16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life.
17 Now to the King of the ages, [the] incorruptible, invisible, only God, honour and glory to the ages of ages. Amen. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
18 This charge, [my] child Timotheus, I commit to thee, according to the prophecies as to thee preceding, in order that thou mightest war by them the good warfare, 18 Timothy, my son, I give you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight,
19 maintaining faith and a good conscience; which [last] some, having put away, have made shipwreck as to faith; 19 holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith.
20 of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan, that they may be taught by discipline not to blaspheme. 20 Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.
