(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus according to the commandment of God our Saviour, and Christ Jesus our hope;
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 2 unto Timothy, my true child in faith: Grace, mercy, peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 3 As I exhorted thee to tarry at Ephesus, when I was going into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge certain men not to teach a different doctrine,
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 4 neither to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, the which minister questionings, rather than a dispensation of God which is in faith; so do I now.
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 5 But the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart and a good conscience and faith unfeigned:
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 6 from which things some having swerved have turned aside unto vain talking;
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, though they understand neither what they say, nor whereof they confidently affirm.
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully,
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 9 as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and unruly, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 10 for fornicators, for abusers of themselves with men, for menstealers, for liars, for false swearers, and if there be any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine;
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 11 according to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 12 I thank him that enabled me, even Christ Jesus our Lord, for that he counted me faithful, appointing me to his service;
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 13 though I was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: howbeit I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief;
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 14 and the grace of our Lord abounded exceedingly with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 15 Faithful is the saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief:
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 16 howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me as chief might Jesus Christ shew forth all his longsuffering, for an ensample of them which should hereafter believe on him unto eternal life.
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 17 Now unto the King eternal, incorruptible, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 18 This charge I commit unto thee, my child Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that by them thou mayest war the good warfare;
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 19 holding faith and a good conscience; which some having thrust from them made shipwreck concerning the faith:
(ERV) 1 Timothy 1 : 20 of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I delivered unto Satan, that they might be taught not to blaspheme.
