2nd Thessalonians 3

The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to Timothy

Return to Index

Chapter 1

1

 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to a command of God our Saviour, and of the Lord Jesus Christ our hope, 

2

 to Timotheus -- genuine child in faith: Grace, kindness, peace, from God our Father, and Christ Jesus our Lord, 

3

 according as I did exhort thee to remain in Ephesus -- I going on to Macedonia -- that thou mightest charge certain not to teach any other thing, 

4

 nor to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, that cause questions rather than the building up of God that is in faith: -- 

5

 And the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned, 

6

 from which certain, having swerved, did turn aside to vain discourse, 

7

 willing to be teachers of law, not understanding either the things they say, nor concerning what they asseverate, 

8

 and we have known that the law [is] good, if any one may use it lawfully; 

9

 having known this, that for a righteous man law is not set, but for lawless and insubordinate persons, ungodly and sinners, impious and profane, parricides and matricides, men-slayers, 

10

 whoremongers, sodomites, men-stealers, liars, perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that to sound doctrine is adverse, 

11

 according to the good news of the glory of the blessed God, with which I was entrusted. 

12

 And I give thanks to him who enabled me -- Christ Jesus our Lord -- that he did reckon me stedfast, having put [me] to the ministration, 

13

 who before was speaking evil, and persecuting, and insulting, but I found kindness, because, being ignorant, I did [it] in unbelief, 

14

 and exceedingly abound did the grace of our Lord, with faith and love that [is] in Christ Jesus: 

15

 stedfast [is] the word, and of all acceptation worthy, that Christ Jesus came to the world to save sinners -- first of whom I am; 

16

 but because of this I found kindness, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all long-suffering, for a pattern of those about to believe on him to life age-during: 

17

 and to the King of the ages, the incorruptible, invisible, only wise God, [is] honour and glory -- to the ages of the ages! Amen. 

18

 This charge I commit to thee, child Timotheus, according to the prophesies that went before upon thee, that thou mayest war in them the good warfare, 

19

 having faith and a good conscience, which certain having thrust away, concerning the faith did make shipwreck, 

20

 of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I did deliver to the Adversary, that they might be instructed not to speak evil. 

1st Timothy 2
