2 to Timothy, beloved son in the faith, grace and mercy and peace, of God the Father, and of Jesus Christ, 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 As I prayed thee, that thou shouldest dwell at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou shouldest command to some men [that thou shouldest announce, or warn, to some], that they should not teach other way, 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 neither give attention to fables and genealogies that be uncertain [and genealogies without end], which give questions, more than edification of God, that is in the faith [that 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 For the end of the commandment is charity of clean heart, and good conscience, and of faith not feigned. 5 The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.
6 From which things some men have erred, and be turned into vain speech; [From which things some erring, be turned together into vain speech;] 6 Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk.
7 and will to be teachers of the law, and understand not what things they speak [+willing to be teachers of the law, not understanding, neither what things they speak], neither of what things they 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 And we know that the law is good, if any man use it lawfully; 8 We know that the law is good if one uses it properly.
9 and witting this thing, that the law is not set to a just man, but to unjust men and not subject, to wicked men and to sinners, to cursed men and defouled, to slayers of father, and slayers of mother, to manslayers [witting this thing, that the law is not put to a just man, but to an unjust and not subject, to unpious men and sinners, to cursed men and defouled, to slayers of fathers, and slayers of mothers, to menslayers] 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 and lechers, to them that do lechery with men, lying-mongers and forsworn, and if any other thing is contrary to the wholesome teaching, [+and fornicators, to them that trespass with males against kind, sellers, or stealers, of men, to lying-mongers and to forsworn men, and if any other thing is contrary to wholesome teaching,] 10 for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers--and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine
11 that is after the gospel of the glory of blessed God, which is betaken to me. 11 that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.
12 I do thankings to him, that [hath] comforted me in Christ Jesus our Lord, for he guessed me faithful, and put me in ministry [putting me in ministry], 12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me faithful, appointing me to his service.
13 that first was a blasphemer [the which I first was a blasphemer], and a pursuer, and full of wrongs. But I have gotten the mercy of God, for I unknowing did 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 over abounded, with faith and love that 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 A true word and worthy all receiving, for Christ Jesus came into this world to make sinful men safe, of which I am the first [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 therefore I have gotten mercy, that Christ Jesus should show in me first all patience, to the informing of them that shall believe to him into everlasting life. 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 And to the king of worlds, undeadly and invisible God alone [to God alone], be honour and glory into worlds of worlds. Amen. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
18 I betake this commandment to thee, thou son Timothy, after the prophecies that have been heretofore in thee, that thou travail in them a good travail, [I commend this precept to thee, son Timothy, after prophecies before-going in thee, that thou fight in them a good knighthood,] 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 having faith and good conscience, which some men cast away, and perished about the faith [the which some casting away, perished about the faith]. 19 holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith.
20 Of which is Hymenaeus and Alexander [Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander], whom I betook to Satan, that they learn not to blaspheme. 20 Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.
