1 Timothy 1
Timothy is put in mind of the charge which was given unto him by Paul at his going to Macedonia.
1 Timothy 1:1 Paul an Apostle of Iesus Christ by the commaundement of God our Sauiour, & Lord Iesus Christ [which is] our hope, 1 Timothy 1:2 Unto Timothie [my] own sonne in the Faith: Grace, mercie, [and] peace from God our Father, and Iesus Christ our Lord. 1 Timothy 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 Timothy 1:4 Neither giue heed to fables, and endlesse genealogies, which minister questions, rather then edifying which is in faith: so doe.
Of the right use and end of the Law.
1 Timothy 1:5 Now the end of the commandement is charity, out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith vnfained. 1 Timothy 1:6 From which some hauing swarued, haue turned aside vnto vaine iangling, 1 Timothy 1:7 Desiring to bee teachers of the Law, vnderstading neither what they say, nor whereof they affirme. 1 Timothy 1:8 But we know that the Law is good, if a man vse it lawfully. 1 Timothy 1:9 Knowing this, that the Law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawlesse and disobedient, for the vngodly, and for sinners, for vnholy, and profane, for murderers of fathers, and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 1 Timothy 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselues with mankinde, for men-stealers, for liars, for periured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,
Of Paul's calling to be an apostle,
1 Timothy 1:11 According to the glorious Gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. 1 Timothy 1:12 And I thanke Christ Iesus our Lord, who hath enabled mee: for that he counted me faithfull, putting me into the Ministerie, 1 Timothy 1:13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecuter, and iniurious. But I obtained mercie, because I did it ignorantly, in vnbeliefe. 1 Timothy 1:14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant, with faith, & loue, which is in Christ Iesus. 1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithfull saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Iesus came into the world to saue sinners, of whom I am chiefe. 1 Timothy 1:16 Howbeit, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first, Iesus Christ might shew foorth all long suffering, for a paterne to them which should hereafter beleeue on him to life euerlasting. 1 Timothy 1:17 Now vnto ye king eternal, immortall, inuisible, the onely wise God, be honour and glory for euer & euer. Amen. 1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit vnto thee, sonne Timothie, according to the prophesies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest warre a good warfare, 1 Timothy 1:19 Holding faith, and a good conscience, which some hauing put away, concerning faith, haue made shipwracke.
and of Hymenaeus and Alexander.
1 Timothy 1:20 Of whom is Hymeneus and Alexander, whome I haue deliuered vnto Satan, that they may learne not to blaspheme.
