First Timothy 1


1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God
 our Savior, and Lord Jesus Christ, [who is] our hope;
1:2 To Timothy, [my] own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, [and]
 peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
1:3 As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went
 into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach
 no other doctrine,
1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which
 minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in
 faith; [so do].
1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure
 heart, and [of] a good conscience, and [of] faith unfeigned:
1:6 From which some having swerved, have turned aside to vain
 jangling;
1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither
 what they say, nor concerning what they affirm.
1:8 But we know that the law [is] good, if a man useth it
 lawfully;
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 man-slayers,
1:10 For lewd persons, for them that defile themselves with
 mankind, for men-stealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and
 if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,
1:11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which
 was committed to my trust.
1:12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for
 that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
1:13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and
 injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did [it] ignorantly
 in unbelief:
1:14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith
 and love which is in Christ Jesus.
1:15 This [is] a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation,
 that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom
 I am chief.
1:16 However, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first
 Jesus Christ might show forth all long-suffering, for a pattern
 to them who should hereafter believe on him to life
 everlasting.
1:17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, God the only
 wise, [be] honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1:18 This charge I commit to thee, son Timothy, according to the
 prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mayest
 war a good warfare;
1:19 Holding faith and a good conscience; which some having put
 away, concerning faith have made shipwreck:
1:20 Of whom is Hymeneus and Alexander; whom I have delivered to
 Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
