Chapter
Timothy 1 1

Book of Timothy 1 - Chapter 1

Timothy 1 1:1

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, [which is] our hope;

Timothy 1 1:2

Unto Timothy, [my] own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, [and] peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

Timothy 1 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,

Timothy 1 1:4

Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: [so do].

Timothy 1 1:5

Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and [of] a good conscience, and [of] faith unfeigned:

Timothy 1 1:6

From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;

Timothy 1 1:7

Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

Timothy 1 1:8

But we know that the law [is] good, if a man use it lawfully;

Timothy 1 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,

Timothy 1 1:10

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;

Timothy 1 1:11

According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

Timothy 1 1:12

And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;

Timothy 1 1:13

Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did [it] ignorantly in unbelief.

Timothy 1 1:14

And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

Timothy 1 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.

Timothy 1 1:16

Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

Timothy 1 1:17

Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, [be] honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Timothy 1 1:18

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 warfare;

Timothy 1 1:19

Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

Timothy 1 1:20

Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
