¶ 1 Timothy 1 v1-2

{ heart }   [1T] 1v1

Paul an apostle of JESUS CHRIST
by the commandment of GOD our SAVIOR,
and LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHICH is our hope,

{ heart }   [1T] 1v2

Unto Timothy my own son in the faith:
grace, mercy, and peace from GOD our FATHER,
and JESUS CHRIST our LORD.

¶ 1 Timothy 1 v3-11

{ heart }   [1T] 1v3

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’,

{ heart }   [1T] 1v4

Neither give heed to fables, and endless genealogies,
which minister questions,
rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

{ heart }   [1T] 1v5

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

{ heart }   [1T] 1v6

From which some having swerved,
have turned aside unto vain jangling,

{ heart }   [1T] 1v7

Desiring to be teachers of the law,
understanding neither what they say,
nor whereof they affirm.

{ heart }   [1T] 1v8

But we know that the law is good,
if a man use it lawfully,

{ heart }   [1T] 1v9

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,
or manslayers,

{ heart }   [1T] 1v10

For whoremongers,
for them that defile themselves with mankind,
for men stealers, for liars, for perjured persons,
and if there be any other thing that is contrary
to sound doctrine,

{ heart }   [1T] 1v11

According to the glorious Gospel of the blessed GOD,
which was committed to my trust.

¶ 1 Timothy 1 v12-17

{ heart }   [1T] 1v12

And I thank CHRIST JESUS our LORD,
WHO hath enabled me:
for that HE counted me faithful,
putting me into the ministry,

{ heart }   [1T] 1v13

Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor,
and injurious. But I obtained mercy,
because I did it ignorantly, in unbelief.

{ heart }   [1T] 1v14

And the grace of our LORD was exceeding abundant,
with faith, and love, which is in CHRIST JESUS.

{ heart }   [1T] 1v15

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation,

 ‘That CHRIST JESUS came into the world
to save sinners,’ 

Of whom I am chief.

{ heart }   [1T] 1v16

Howbeit, for this cause I obtained mercy,
that in me first,
JESUS CHRIST might show forth all long suffering,
for a pattern to them which should hereafter
believe on HIM to life everlasting.

{ heart }   [1T] 1v17

Now unto the KING eternal, immortal, invisible,
the only wise GOD,
be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

¶ 1 Timothy 1 v18-20

{ heart }   [1T] 1v18

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’,

{ heart }   [1T] 1v19

Holding faith, and a good conscience,
which some having put away, concerning faith,
have made shipwreck.

{ heart }   [1T] 1v20

Of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander,
whom I have delivered unto Satan,
that they may learn not to blaspheme.

» 1 Timothy 2

¶ 1 Timothy 2 v1-7

{ heart }   [1T] 2v1

I exhort therefore, that first of all,
supplications, prayers, intercessions,
and giving of thanks be made for all men:

{ heart }   [1T] 2v2

For kings, and for all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life
in all godliness and honesty.

{ heart }   [1T] 2v3

For this is good and acceptable
in the sight of GOD our SAVIOR,

{ heart }   [1T] 2v4

WHO will have all men to be saved,
and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

{ heart }   [1T] 2v5

For there is one GOD,
and one MEDIATOR between GOD and men,
the MAN CHRIST JESUS,

{ heart }   [1T] 2v6

WHO gave HIMSELF a ransom for all,
to be testified in due time.

{ heart }   [1T] 2v7

Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle
(I speak the truth in CHRIST, and lie not)
a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

¶ 1 Timothy 2 v8-15

{ heart }   [1T] 2v8

I will therefore that men pray everywhere,
lifting up holy hands without wrath, and doubting.

{ heart }   [1T] 2v9

In like manner also,
that women adorn themselves in modest apparel,
with shamefacedness and sobriety,
not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array,

{ heart }   [1T] 2v10

But (which becometh women professing godliness)
with good works.

{ heart }   [1T] 2v11

Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection:

{ heart }   [1T] 2v12

But I suffer not a woman to teach,
nor to usurp authority over the man,
but to be in silence.

{ heart }   [1T] 2v13

For Adam was first formed, then Eve:

{ heart }   [1T] 2v14

And Adam was not deceived,
but the woman being deceived
was in the transgression.

{ heart }   [1T] 2v15

Notwithstanding, she shall be saved in child-bearing,
if they continue in faith and charity,
and holiness with sobriety.

» 1 Timothy 3

¶ 1 Timothy 3 v1-7

{ heart }   [1T] 3v1

This is a true saying:

 ‘If a man desire the office of a bishop,
he desireth a good work’.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v2

A bishop then must be blameless,
the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober,
of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

{ heart }   [1T] 3v3

Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre,
but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

{ heart }   [1T] 3v4

One that ruleth well his own house,
having his children in subjection with all gravity.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v5

(For if a man know not how to rule his own house,
how shall he take care of the church of GOD?)

{ heart }   [1T] 3v6

Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride,
he fall into the condemnation of the Devil.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v7

Moreover, he must have a good report
of them which are without,
lest he fall into reproach, and the snare of the Devil.

¶ 1 Timothy 3 v8-13

{ heart }   [1T] 3v8

Likewise must the deacons be grave,
not double tongued, not given to much wine,
not greedy of filthy lucre,

{ heart }   [1T] 3v9

Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v10

And let these also first be proved;
then let them use the office of a deacon,
being found blameless.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v11

Even so must their wives be grave;
not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v12

Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife,
ruling their children, and their own houses well.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v13

For they that have used the office of a deacon well,
purchase to themselves a good degree,
and great boldness in the faith,
which is in CHRIST JESUS.

¶ 1 Timothy 3 v14-16

{ heart }   [1T] 3v14

These things write I unto thee,
hoping to come unto thee shortly.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v15

But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know
how thou oughtest to behave thyself
in the house of GOD,
which is the church of the living GOD,
the pillar and ground of the truth.

{ heart }   [1T] 3v16

And without controversy,
great is the mystery of godliness:
GOD was manifest in the flesh, justified in the SPIRIT,
seen of Angels, preached unto the Gentiles,
believed on in the world, received up into glory.

» 1 Timothy 4

¶ 1 Timothy 4 v1-5

{ heart }   [1T] 4v1

Now the SPIRIT speaketh expressly

That in the latter times
some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to Seducing Spirits,
and doctrines of Devils:

{ heart }   [1T] 4v2

Speaking lies in hypocrisy,
having their conscience seared with a hot iron,

{ heart }   [1T] 4v3

Forbidding to marry,
and commanding to abstain from meats,
which GOD hath created
to be received with thanksgiving
of them which believe, and know the truth.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v4

For every creature of GOD is good,
and nothing to be refused,
if it is received with thanksgiving:

{ heart }   [1T] 4v5

For it is sanctified by the word of GOD, and prayer.

¶ 1 Timothy 4 v6-11

{ heart }   [1T] 4v6

If thou put the brethren in remembrance
of these things,
thou shalt be a good minister of JESUS CHRIST,
nourished up in the words of faith,
and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v7

But refuse profane and old wives' fables,
and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v8

For bodily exercise profiteth little,
but godliness is profitable unto all things,
having promise of the life that now is,
and of that which is to come.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v9

This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v10

For therefore we both labor, and suffer reproach,
because we trust in the living GOD,
WHO is the SAVIOR of all men,
specially of those that believe.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v11

These things command and teach.

¶ 1 Timothy 4 v12-16

{ heart }   [1T] 4v12

Let no man despise thy youth,
but be thou an example of the believers, in word,
in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v13

Till I come, give attendance to reading,
to exhortation, to doctrine.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v14

Neglect not the gift that is in thee,
which was given thee by prophecy,
with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v15

Meditate upon these things,
give thyself wholly to them,
that thy profiting may appear to all.

{ heart }   [1T] 4v16

Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine:
continue in them: for in doing this,
thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

» 1 Timothy 5

¶ 1 Timothy 5 v1-2

{ heart }   [1T] 5v1

Rebuke not an elder, but entreat him as a father,
and the younger men as brethren:

{ heart }   [1T] 5v2

The elder women as mothers,
the younger as sisters with all purity.

¶ 1 Timothy 5 v3-16

{ heart }   [1T] 5v3

Honor widows that are widows indeed.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v4

But if any widow have children or nephews,
let them learn first to show piety at home,
and to requite their parents:
for that is good and acceptable before GOD.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v5

Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate,
trusteth in GOD,
and continueth in supplications and prayers
night and day.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v6

But she that liveth in pleasure,
is dead while she liveth.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v7

And these things give in charge,
that they may be blameless.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v8

But if any provide not for his own,
and specially for those of his own house,
he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v9

Let not a widow be taken into the number,
under threescore years old,
having been the wife of one man,

{ heart }   [1T] 5v10

Well reported of for good works,
if she have brought up children,
if she have lodged strangers,
if she have washed the Saints' feet,
if she have relieved the afflicted,
if she have diligently followed every good work.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v11

But the younger widows refuse:
for when they have begun to wax wanton
against CHRIST, they will marry,

{ heart }   [1T] 5v12

Having damnation,
because they have cast off their first faith.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v13

And withal they learn to be idle,
wandering about from house to house;
and not only idle, but tattlers also,
and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v14

I will therefore that the younger women marry,
bear children, guide the house,
give none occasion to the Adversary
to speak reproachfully.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v15

For some are already turned aside after Satan.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v16

If any man or woman that believeth have widows,
let them relieve them,
and let not the church be charged,
that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

¶ 1 Timothy 5 v17-25

{ heart }   [1T] 5v17

Let the elders that rule well,
be counted worthy of double honor,
especially they who labor in the word and doctrine.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v18

For the Scripture saith,

Thou shalt not muzzle the ox
that treadeth out the corn:


And,

The laborer is worthy of his reward.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v19

Against an elder receive not an accusation,
but before two or three witnesses.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v20

Them that sin rebuke before all,
that others also may fear.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v21

I charge thee before GOD,
and the LORD JESUS CHRIST,
and the elect Angels,

 ‘That thou observe these things
without preferring one before another,
doing nothing by partiality’.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v22

Lay hands suddenly on no man,
neither be partaker of other men's sins.
Keep thyself pure.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v23

Drink no longer water,
but use a little wine for thy stomach's sake,
and thine often infirmities.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v24

Some men's sins are open beforehand,
going before to judgment:
and some men they follow after.

{ heart }   [1T] 5v25

Likewise also the good works of some
are manifest beforehand,
and they that are otherwise, cannot be hid.

» 1 Timothy 6

¶ 1 Timothy 6 v1-2

{ heart }   [1T] 6v1

Let as many servants as are under the yoke,
count their own masters worthy of all honor,
that the NAME of GOD,
and HIS doctrine be not blasphemed.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v2

And they that have believing masters,
let them not despise them
because they are brethren:
but rather do them service,
because they are faithful and beloved,
partakers of the benefit:
These things teach and exhort.

¶ 1 Timothy 6 v3-10

{ heart }   [1T] 6v3

If any man teach otherwise,
and consent not to wholesome words,
even the words of our LORD JESUS CHRIST,
and to the doctrine which is according to godliness:

{ heart }   [1T] 6v4

He is proud, knowing nothing,
but doting about questions, and strifes of words,
whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

{ heart }   [1T] 6v5

Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds,
and destitute of the truth,
supposing that gain is godliness:
From such withdraw thyself.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v6

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v7

For we brought nothing into this world,
and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v8

And having food and raiment
let us be therewith content.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v9

But they that will be rich,
fall into temptation and a snare,
and into many foolish and hurtful lusts,
which drown men in destruction and perdition.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v10

For the love of money is the root of all evil,
which while some coveted after,
they have erred from the faith,
and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

¶ 1 Timothy 6 v11-16

{ heart }   [1T] 6v11

But thou, O man of GOD, flee these things;
and follow after righteousness,
godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v12

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good profession
before many witnesses.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v13

I give thee charge in the sight of GOD,
WHO quickeneth all things,
and before CHRIST JESUS,
WHO before Pontius Pilate
witnessed a good confession,

{ heart }   [1T] 6v14

That thou keep this commandment
without spot, unrebukeable,
until the appearing of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

{ heart }   [1T] 6v15

Which in HIS times HE shall show,
WHO is the blessed, and only POTENTATE,
the KING of kings, and LORD of lords:

{ heart }   [1T] 6v16

WHO only hath immortality, dwelling in the light,
which no man can approach unto,
WHOM no man hath seen, nor can see:
to WHOM be honor and power everlasting. Amen.

¶ 1 Timothy 6 v17-19

{ heart }   [1T] 6v17

Charge them that are rich in this world,

 ‘That they be not high minded,
nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living GOD,
WHO giveth us richly all things to enjoy’,

{ heart }   [1T] 6v18

That they do good, that they be rich in good works,
ready to distribute, willing to communicate,

{ heart }   [1T] 6v19

Laying up in store for themselves
a good foundation against the time to come,
that they may lay hold on eternal life.

¶ 1 Timothy 6 v20-21

{ heart }   [1T] 6v20

O Timothy,
keep that which is committed to thy trust,
avoiding profane and vain babblings,
and oppositions of science, falsely so called:

{ heart }   [1T] 6v21

Which some professing,
have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee.
Amen.


The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea,
which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacaciana.
