Chapter 1

1st Tim. 1:1 Paul,1 an apostle of Jesus Christ by the mandate of God our Savior, and Lord Jesus Christ, who is our hope;

1st Tim. 1:2 to Timothy, my authentic son in faith: grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

1st Tim. 1:3 As I called upon you to remain at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia that you might charge some that they do not teach different teachings,

1st Tim. 1:4 neither give heed to myths and incomplete genealogies, which present arguments, rather than God’s building which is in faith: so do.

1st Tim. 1:5 Now the goal of the mandate is love out of a pure heart, and a good conscience, and authentic faith:

1st Tim. 1:6 from which some having missed the goal; having turned aside to meaningless speaking;

1st Tim. 1:7 desiring to be teachers of the Law; comprehending neither what they say, nor concerning what they positively assert.

1st Tim. 1:8 But we know that the Law is good, if a man uses it lawfully;

1st Tim. 1:9 knowing this, that the Law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

1st Tim. 1:10 for fornicators, for homosexuals, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is set against healthy teaching;

1st Tim. 1:11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was entrusted to me.

1st Tim. 1:12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who empowers me, for He counted me faithful, placing me into service;

1st Tim. 1:13 who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

1st Tim. 1:14 And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

1st Tim. 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of who I am chief.

1st Tim. 1:16 However for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first, Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to those who are about to be believing on Him to life infinite.

1st Tim. 1:17 Now to the King infinite, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory into this age and the New Covenant Age. Amen.

1st Tim. 1:18 This mandate I set before you, child Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that in them you might be fighting a good warfare;

1st Tim. 1:19 possessing faith, and a good conscience; which some having pushed away concerning the faith have shipwrecked:

1st Tim. 1:20 of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have given over to Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
