(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 1 Paul, apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the command of God our Saviour, and of Christ Jesus our hope,
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 2 to Timotheus, my true child in faith: grace, mercy, peace, from God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 3 Even as I begged thee to remain in Ephesus, when I was going to Macedonia, that thou mightest enjoin some not to teach other doctrines,
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 4 nor to turn their minds to fables and interminable genealogies, which bring questionings rather than further God's dispensation, which is in faith.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 5 But the end of what is enjoined is love out of a pure heart and a good conscience and unfeigned faith;
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 6 which things some having missed, have turned aside to vain discourse,
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 7 desiring to be law-teachers, not understanding either what they say or concerning what they so strenuously affirm.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 8 Now we know that the law is good if any one uses it lawfully,
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 9 knowing this, that law has not its application to a righteous person, but to the lawless and insubordinate, to the impious and sinful, to the unholy and profane, to smiters of fathers and smiters of mothers; to murderers,
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 10 fornicators, sodomites, kidnappers, liars, perjurers; and if any other thing is opposed to sound teaching,
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 11 according to the glad tidings of the glory of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me power, that he has counted me faithful, appointing to ministry him
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 13 who before was a blasphemer and persecutor, and an insolent overbearing man: but mercy was shewn me because I did it ignorantly, in unbelief.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 14 But the grace of our Lord surpassingly over-abounded with faith and love, which is in Christ Jesus.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 15 Faithful is the word, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the first.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 16 But for this reason mercy was shewn me, that in me, the first, Jesus Christ might display the whole long-suffering, for a delineation of those about to believe on him to life eternal.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 17 Now to the King of the ages, the incorruptible, invisible, only God, honour and glory to the ages of ages. Amen.
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 18 This charge, my child Timotheus, I commit to thee, according to the prophecies as to thee preceding, in order that thou mightest war by them the good warfare,
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 19 maintaining faith and a good conscience; which last some, having put away, have made shipwreck as to faith;
(DB) 1 Timothy 1 : 20 of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan, that they may be taught by discipline not to blaspheme.
