1st Timothy   chapter 1

       1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the
      commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus
      Christ, which is our hope;
       2 Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace,
      mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus
      Christ our Lord.
       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,
       4 Neither give heed to fables and endless
      genealogies, which minister questions, rather
      than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
       5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out
      of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of
      faith unfeigned:
       6 From which some having swerved have turned
      aside unto vain jangling;
       7 Desiring to be teachers of the law;
      understanding neither what they say, nor whereof
      they affirm.
       8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use
      it lawfully;
       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,
      10 For whoremongers, for them that defile
      themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for
      liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any
      other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
      11 According to the glorious gospel of the
      blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
      12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath
      enabled me, for that he counted me faithful,
      putting me into the ministry;
      13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor,
      and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I
      did it ignorantly in unbelief.
      14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding
      abundant with faith and love which is in Christ
      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.
      16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that
      in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all
      longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should
      hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
      17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal,
      invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory
      for ever and ever. Amen.
      18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy,
      according to the prophecies which went before on
      thee, that thou by them mightest war a good
      19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which
      some having put away concerning faith have made
      20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I
      have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn
      not to blaspheme. 1st Timothy chapter 2
