1:1

Greeting


1:1 Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, Which is our hope;

1:2 Unto Timothy, mine own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

Opposing speculations about faith

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,

1:4 neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which serve questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:

Opposing legalism with Grace

1:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;

1:7 desiring to be teachers of the Law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

1:8 But we know that the Law is good, if a man use it lawfully;

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,

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;

1:11 according to the glorious Gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

Paul's example: Salvation by Grace

1:12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the service;

1:13 who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

1:14 And the Grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.

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 the nadir.

1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to Life everlasting.

1:17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Timothy called to faithfulness

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;

1:19 holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
