1 Timothy 1:1-6 (Weymouth New Testament)

View In My Bible
1 Paul, an Apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God our Saviour and Christ Jesus our hope: 2 To Timothy, my own true son in the faith. May grace, mercy and peace be granted to you from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 3 When I was on my journey to Macedonia I begged you to remain on in Ephesus that you might remonstrate with certain persons because of their erroneous teaching 4 and the attention they bestow on mere fables and endless pedigrees, such as lead to controversy rather than to a true stewardship for God, which only exists where there is faith. And I make the same request now. 5 But the end sought to be secured by exhortation is the love which springs from a pure heart, a clear conscience and a sincere faith. 6 From these some have drifted away, and have wandered into empty words.
