Book 54 1 Timothy 001:001 Paul, an Apostle of Christ Jesus by the
will of God our Saviour and Christ Jesus our hope: 001:002 To
Timothy, my own true son in the faith. May grace, mercy and peace be
granted to you from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 001:003
When I was on my journey to Macedonia I begged you to remain on in
Ephesus that you might remonstrate with certain persons because of
their erroneous teaching 001:004 and the attention they bestow on mere
fables and endless pedigrees, such as lead to controversy rather than to
a true stewardship for God, which only exists where there is faith. And
I make the same request now. 001:005 But the end sought to be secured
by exhortation is the love which springs from a pure heart, a clear
conscience and a sincere faith. 001:006 From these some have drifted
away, and have wandered into empty words. 001:007 They are
ambitious to be teachers of the Law, although they do not understand
either their own words or what the things are about which they make
such confident assertions. 001:008 Now we know that the Law is good,
if a man uses it in the way it should be used, 001:009 and remembers
that a law is not enacted to control a righteous man, but for the lawless
and rebellious, the irreligious and sinful, the godless and profane--for
those who strike their fathers or their mothers, for murderers, 001:010
fornicators, sodomites, slave-dealers, liars and false witnesses; and for
whatever else is opposed to wholesome teaching 001:011 and is not in
accordance with the Good News of the blessed God with which I have
been entrusted. 001:012 I am thankful to Him who made me
strong--even Christ Jesus our Lord--because He has judged me to be
faithful and has put me into His service, 001:013 though I was
previously a blasphemer and a persecutor and had been insolent in

outrage. Yet mercy was shown me, because I had acted ignorantly, not
having as yet believed; 001:014 and the grace of our Lord came to me
in overflowing fulness, conferring faith on me and the love which is in
Christ Jesus. 001:015 Faithful is the saying, and deserving of universal
acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;
among whom I stand foremost. 001:016 But mercy was shown me in
order that in me as the foremost of sinners Christ Jesus might display
the fulness of His long-suffering patience as an example to encourage
those who would afterwards be resting their faith on Him with a view
to the Life of the Ages. 001:017 Now to the immortal and invisible
King of the Ages, who alone is God, be honour and glory to the Ages
of the Ages! Amen. 001:018 This is the charge which I entrust to you,
my son Timothy, in accordance with the inspired instructions
concerning you which were given me long ago, that being equipped
with them as your armour you may be continually fighting the good
fight, 001:019 holding fast to faith and a clear conscience, which some
have cast aside and have made shipwreck of their faith. 001:020
Among these are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to
Satan so that they may be taught not to blaspheme. 002:001 I exhort
then, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions and
thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all
