I Timothy 1-3
I Chronicles 10-14
1 Timothy 1
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to a command of God our Saviour, and of the Lord Jesus Christ our hope,
to Timotheus -- genuine child in faith: Grace, kindness, peace, from God our Father, and Christ Jesus our Lord,
according as I did exhort thee to remain in Ephesus -- I going on to Macedonia -- that thou mightest charge certain not to teach any other thing,
nor to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, that cause questions rather than the building up of God that is in faith: --
And the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned,
from which certain, having swerved, did turn aside to vain discourse,
willing to be teachers of law, not understanding either the things they say, nor concerning what they asseverate,
and we have known that the law [is] good, if any one may use it lawfully;
having known this, that for a righteous man law is not set, but for lawless and insubordinate persons, ungodly and sinners, impious and profane, parricides and matricides, men-slayers,
whoremongers, sodomites, men-stealers, liars, perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that to sound doctrine is adverse,
according to the good news of the glory of the blessed God, with which I was entrusted.
And I give thanks to him who enabled me -- Christ Jesus our Lord -- that he did reckon me stedfast, having put [me] to the ministration,
who before was speaking evil, and persecuting, and insulting, but I found kindness, because, being ignorant, I did [it] in unbelief,
and exceedingly abound did the grace of our Lord, with faith and love that [is] in Christ Jesus:
stedfast [is] the word, and of all acceptation worthy, that Christ Jesus came to the world to save sinners -- first of whom I am;
but because of this I found kindness, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all long-suffering, for a pattern of those about to believe on him to life age-during:
and to the King of the ages, the incorruptible, invisible, only wise God, [is] honour and glory -- to the ages of the ages! Amen.
This charge I commit to thee, child Timotheus, according to the prophesies that went before upon thee, that thou mayest war in them the good warfare,
having faith and a good conscience, which certain having thrust away, concerning the faith did make shipwreck,
of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I did deliver to the Adversary, that they might be instructed not to speak evil.
1 Timothy 2
I exhort, then, first of all, there be made supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, for all men:
for kings, and all who are in authority, that a quiet and peaceable life we may lead in all piety and gravity,
for this [is] right and acceptable before God our Saviour,
who doth will all men to be saved, and to come to the full knowledge of the truth;
for one [is] God, one also [is] mediator of God and of men, the man Christ Jesus,
who did give himself a ransom for all -- the testimony in its own times --
in regard to which I was set a preacher and apostle -- truth I say in Christ, I do not lie -- a teacher of nations, in faith and truth.
I wish, therefore, that men pray in every place, lifting up kind hands, apart from anger and reasoning;
in like manner also the women, in becoming apparel, with modesty and sobriety to adorn themselves, not in braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or garments of great price,
but -- which becometh women professing godly piety -- through good works.
Let a woman in quietness learn in all subjection,
and a woman I do not suffer to teach, nor to rule a husband, but to be in quietness,
for Adam was first formed, then Eve,
and Adam was not deceived, but the woman, having been deceived, into transgression came,
and she shall be saved through the child-bearing, if they remain in faith, and love, and sanctification, with sobriety.
1 Timothy 3
Stedfast [is] the word: If any one the oversight doth long for, a right work he desireth;
it behoveth, therefore, the overseer to be blameless, of one wife a husband, vigilant, sober, decent, a friend of strangers, apt to teach,
not given to wine, not a striker, not given to filthy lucre, but gentle, not contentious, not a lover of money,
his own house leading well, having children in subjection with all gravity,
(and if any one his own house [how] to lead hath not known, how an assembly of God shall he take care of?)
not a new convert, lest having been puffed up he may fall to a judgment of the devil;
and it behoveth him also to have a good testimony from those without, that he may not fall into reproach and a snare of the devil.
Ministrants -- in like manner grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not given to filthy lucre,
having the secret of the faith in a pure conscience,
and let these also first be proved, then let them minister, being unblameable.
Women -- in like manner grave, not false accusers, vigilant, faithful in all things.
Ministrants -- let them be of one wife husbands; the children leading well, and their own houses,
for those who did minister well a good step to themselves do acquire, and much boldness in faith that [is] in Christ Jesus.
These things I write to thee, hoping to come unto thee soon,
and if I delay, that thou mayest know how it behoveth [thee] to conduct thyself in the house of God, which is an assembly of the living God -- a pillar and foundation of the truth,
and, confessedly, great is the secret of piety -- God was manifested in flesh, declared righteous in spirit, seen by messengers, preached among nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory!
