1 Timothy Chapter 1

World English Bible

   1: Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus according to the commandment of God our Savior, and Christ Jesus our hope;
   2: to Timothy, my true child in faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
   3: As I exhorted you to stay at Ephesus when I was going into Macedonia, that you might charge certain men not to teach a different doctrine,
   4: neither to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which cause disputes, rather than God's stewardship, which is in faith --
   5: but the end of the charge is love, out of a pure heart and a good conscience and unfeigned faith;
   6: from which things some, having missed the mark, have turned aside to vain talking;
   7: desiring to be teachers of the law, though they understand neither what they say, nor about what they strongly affirm.
   8: But we know that the law is good, if a man uses it lawfully,
   9: as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
   10: for the sexually immoral, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and for any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine;
   11: according to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
   12: And I thank him who enabled me, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he counted me faithful, appointing me to service;
   13: although I was before a blasphemer, a persecutor, and insolent. However, I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
   14: The grace of our Lord abounded exceedingly with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
   15: The saying is faithful and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
   16: However, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me as chief, Jesus Christ might display all his patience, for an example of those who were going to believe in him to eternal life.
   17: Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
   18: This charge I commit to you, my child Timothy, according to the prophecies which led the way to you, that by them you may wage the good warfare;
   19: holding faith and a good conscience; which some having thrust away made a shipwreck concerning the faith;
   20: of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I delivered to Satan, that they might be taught not to blaspheme.
