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 acordinge to the commaundement of God oure Sauioure, and of the LORDE Iesus Christ, which is oure hope. 1 Timothy 1:2 Vnto Timothy my naturall sonne in the faith. Grace, mercy, and peace from God oure father, and oure LORDE Iesus Christ. 1 Timothy 1:3 As I besoughte ye to abyde still at Ephesus (whan I departed in to Macedonia) eue so do, that thou commaunde some, that they teach none other wyse, 1 Timothy 1:4 nether geue hede to fables and genealogies, which are endlesse, and brede doutes more then godly edifyenge, which is by faith.
Of the right use and end of the Law.
1 Timothy 1:5 For ye chefe summe of the commaundement is loue of a pure hert, and of a good coscience, and of faith vnfayned. 1 Timothy 1:6 From the which some haue erred, & haue turned vnto vayne iangelynge, 1 Timothy 1:7 wyllinge to be doctours of the scripture, and vnderstonde not what they speake, nether wherof they affirme. 1 Timothy 1:8 But we knowe that the lawe is good, yf a man vse it laufully, 1 Timothy 1:9 vnderstodinge this, that the lawe is not geuen vnto the righteous, but to the vnrighteous & dishobedient, to the vngodly & to synners, to the vnholy & vncleane, to murthurers of fathers and murthurers of mothers, to manslayers, 1 Timothy 1:10 to whoremongers, to the that defyle them selues with mankynde, to menstealers, to lyars, to periured, & so forth yf there be eny other thinge yt is cotrary to ye wholsome doctryne,
Of Paul's calling to be an apostle,
1 Timothy 1:11 acordinge to ye Gospell of ye glory of the blessed God, which (Gospell) is comytted vnto me. 1 Timothy 1:12 And I thanke Christ Iesus or LORDE, which hath made me stroge, for he counted me faithfull, & put me in office, 1 Timothy 1:13 wha before I was a blasphemer, & a persecuter, & a tyraunt: but I optayned mercy, because I dyd it ignorauntly in vnbeleue. 1 Timothy 1:14 Neuertheles the grace of or LORDE was more abudaunt thorow ye faith & loue which is in Christ Iesu. 1 Timothy 1:15 For this is a true sayenge, and by all meanes worthy to be receaued, that Christ Iesus came in to ye worlde to saue synners, of whom I am chefe. 1 Timothy 1:16 Notwithstondynge for this cause optayned I mercy, that Iesus Christ mighte pryncipally shewe in me all longe pacience, to the ensample of them which shulde beleue in him vnto eternall life. 1 Timothy 1:17 So then vnto God kynge euerlastinge, immortall and invisible, and wyse onely, be honoure and prayse for euer and euer Amen. 1 Timothy 1:18 This commaundement commytte I vnto the (my sonne Timotheus) acordinge to ye prophecies which in tyme past were prophecied of the, that thou in them shuldest fighte a good fighte, 1 Timothy 1:19 hauynge faith & good conscience, which some haue put awaye fro them, and as concernynge faith haue made shypwrake:
