Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Savior, and Lord Jesus Christ, who is our hope,
Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
As I besought thee when I went into Macedonia to abide still at Ephesus, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,
neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which promote questions rather than godly edifying in the faith, so do!
Now the aim of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, with a good conscience and with faith unfeigned,
from which some have swerved and have turned aside unto vain jangling,
