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