1 Timothy 4
- And the Spirit expressly speaketh, that in latter times shall certain fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and teachings of demons,
- in hypocrisy speaking lies, being seared in their own conscience,
- forbidding to marry -- to abstain from meats that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those believing and acknowledging the truth,
- because every creature of God [is] good, and nothing [is] to be rejected, with thanksgiving being received,
- for it is sanctified through the word of God and intercession.
- These things placing before the brethren, thou shalt be a good ministrant of Jesus Christ, being nourished by the words of the faith, and of the good teaching, which thou didst follow after,
- and the profane and old women's fables reject thou, and exercise thyself unto piety,
- for the bodily exercise is unto little profit, and the piety is to all things profitable, a promise having of the life that now is, and of that which is coming;
- stedfast [is] the word, and of all acceptation worthy;
- for for this we both labour and are reproached, because we hope on the living God, who is Saviour of all men -- especially of those believing.
- Charge these things, and teach;
- let no one despise thy youth, but a pattern become thou of those believing in word, in behaviour, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity;
- till I come, give heed to the reading, to the exhortation, to the teaching;
- be not careless of the gift in thee, that was given thee through prophecy, with laying on of the hands of the eldership;
- of these things be careful; in these things be, that thy advancement may be manifest in all things;
- take heed to thyself, and to the teaching; remain in them, for this thing doing, both thyself thou shalt save, and those hearing thee.
1 Timothy 5
- An aged person thou mayest not rebuke, but be entreating as a father; younger persons as brethren;
- aged women as mothers, younger ones as sisters -- in all purity;
- honour widows who are really widows;
- and if any widow have children or grandchildren, let them learn first to their own house to show piety, and to give back a recompense to the parents, for this is right and acceptable before God.
- And she who is really a widow and desolate, hath hoped upon God, and doth remain in the supplications and in the prayers night and day,
- and she who is given to luxury, living -- hath died;
- and these things charge, that they may be blameless;
- and if any one for his own -- and especially for those of the household -- doth not provide, the faith he hath denied, and than an unbeliever he is worse.
- A widow -- let her not be enrolled under sixty years of age, having been a wife of one husband,
- in good works being testified to: if she brought up children, if she entertained strangers, if saints' feet she washed, if those in tribulation she relieved, if every good work she followed after;
- and younger widows be refusing, for when they may revel against the Christ, they wish to marry,
- having judgment, because the first faith they did cast away,
- and at the same time also, they learn [to be] idle, going about the houses; and not only idle, but also tattlers and busybodies, speaking the things they ought not;
- I wish, therefore, younger ones to marry, to bear children, to be mistress of the house, to give no occasion to the opposer to reviling;
- for already certain did turn aside after the Adversary.
- If any believing man or believing woman have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the assembly be burdened, that those really widows it may relieve.
- The well-leading elders of double honour let them be counted worthy, especially those labouring in word and teaching,
- for the Writing saith, `An ox treading out thou shalt not muzzle,' and `Worthy [is] the workman of his reward.'
- Against an elder an accusation receive not, except upon two or three witnesses.
- Those sinning, reprove before all, that the others also may have fear;
- I testify fully, before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the choice messengers, that these things thou mayest keep, without forejudging, doing nothing by partiality.
- Be laying hands quickly on no one, nor be having fellowship with sins of others; be keeping thyself pure;
- no longer be drinking water, but a little wine be using, because of thy stomach and of thine often infirmities;
- of certain men the sins are manifest beforehand, leading before to judgment, and certain also they follow after;
- in like manner also the right works are manifest beforehand, and those that are otherwise are not able to be hid.
1 Timothy 6
- As many as are servants under a yoke, their own masters worthy of all honour let them reckon, that the name of God and the teaching may not be evil spoken of;
- and those having believing masters, let them not slight [them], because they are brethren, but rather let them serve, because they are stedfast and beloved, who of the benefit are partaking. These things be teaching and exhorting;
- if any one be teaching otherwise, and do not consent to sound words -- those of our Lord Jesus Christ -- and to the teaching according to piety,
- he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and word-striving, out of which doth come envy, strife, evil-speakings, evil-surmisings,
- wranglings of men wholly corrupted in mind, and destitute of the truth, supposing the piety to be gain; depart from such;
- but it is great gain -- the piety with contentment;
- for nothing did we bring into the world -- [it is] manifest that we are able to carry nothing out;
- but having food and raiment -- with these we shall suffice ourselves;
- and those wishing to be rich, do fall into temptation and a snare, and many desires, foolish and hurtful, that sink men into ruin and destruction,
- for a root of all the evils is the love of money, which certain longing for did go astray from the faith, and themselves did pierce through with many sorrows;
- and thou, O man of God, these things flee, and pursue righteousness, piety, faith, love, endurance, meekness;
- be striving the good strife of the faith, be laying hold on the life age-during, to which also thou wast called, and didst profess the right profession before many witnesses.
- I charge thee, before God, who is making all things alive, and of Christ Jesus, who did testify before Pontius Pilate the right profession,
- that thou keep the command unspotted, unblameable, till the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ,
- which in His own times He shall shew -- the blessed and only potentate, the King of the kings and Lord of the lords,
- who only is having immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable, whom no one of men did see, nor is able to see, to whom [is] honour and might age-during! Amen.
- Those rich in the present age charge thou not to be high-minded, nor to hope in the uncertainty of riches, but in the living God, who is giving to us all things richly for enjoyment; --
- to do good, to be rich in good works, to be ready to impart, willing to communicate,
- treasuring up to themselves a right foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on the life age-during.
- O Timotheus, the thing entrusted guard thou, avoiding the profane vain-words and opposition of the falsely-named knowledge,
- which certain professing -- concerning the faith did swerve; the grace [is] with you. Amen.
