Bishops' Bible

1 Timothy 6

Of the duty of servants.

1 Timothy 6:1 Let as many seruauntes as are vnder the yoke, count their maisters worthy of all honour, that the name of god and his doctrine be not blasphemed. 1 Timothy 6:2 And they whiche haue beleuyng maisters, despise them not because they are brethren: but rather do seruice, forasmuch as they are beleuyng and beloued and partakers of the benefite. These thynges teache and exhort.

Not to have fellowship with newfangled teachers.

1 Timothy 6:3 Yf any man teache otherwyse, and consenteth not vnto the wholsome wordes of our Lorde Iesus Christe, and to the doctrine whiche is accordyng to godlynesse: 1 Timothy 6:4 He is puft vp, knowyng nothing, but dotyng about questions and strifes of wordes, wherof commeth enuie, stryfe, raylynges, euyll surmysynges, 1 Timothy 6:5 Uayne disputations of men of corrupte myndes, destitute of the trueth, thynkyng lucre to be godlynesse. From suche be thou separate.

Godliness is great gain,

1 Timothy 6:6 Godlynesse is great lucre, if a man be content with that he hath. 1 Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothyng into the worlde, and it is certayne that we may carry nought away. 1 Timothy 6:8 But hauyng foode and rayment, we must therwith be content. 1 Timothy 6:9 For they that wyll be riche, fall into temptations and snares, and into many folishe & noysome lustes, which drowne men in perdition and destruction.

and love of money the root of all evil.

1 Timothy 6:10 For loue of money, is the roote of all euyll, whiche whyle some lusted after, they erred from the fayth, & pearced the selues through with many sorowes.

What Timothy is to flee, and what to follow,

1 Timothy 6:11 But thou O man of God, flee these thynges, and folow after righteousnes, godlynes, faith, loue, pacience, mekenes. 1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hand on eternall lyfe, wherevnto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:13 I geue thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all thynges, and before Iesus Christe, which vnder Pontius Pilate witnessed a good profession, 1 Timothy 6:14 That thou kepe the commaundement without spot, vnrebukeable, vntyll the appearyng of our Lorde Iesus Christ: 1 Timothy 6:15 Which in his tymes he shall shewe that is blessed and prince only, the kyng of kynges, and Lorde of Lordes, 1 Timothy 6:16 Who only hath immortalitie, dwelling in the light that no man can attayne vnto, Whom no man hath seene, neither can see, vnto whom be honour & power euerlastyng. Amen.

and wherefore to admonish the rich.

1 Timothy 6:17 Charge them which are riche in this world, that they be not hie minded, nor trust in vncertayne riches: but in ye lyuyng God, which geueth vs aboundauntly all thinges to enioy: 1 Timothy 6:18 That they do good, that they be riche in good workes, that they be redye to geue, glad to distribute: 1 Timothy 6:19 Laying vp in store for them selues a good foundation agaynst the tyme to come, that they may lay holde on eternall lyfe.

To keep the purity of true doctrine, and to avoid profane janglings.

1 Timothy 6:20 O Timotheus, saue that which is geuen thee to kepe, auoydyng prophane [and] vayne bablynges, and oppositions of science, falslie so called: 1 Timothy 6:21 Which some professyng, haue erred concernyng the fayth. Grace [be] with thee. Amen. {Sent from Laodicea, which is the chiefest citie of Phrygia Pacaciana.}
