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 commyssyon of God our sauyour, & Lord Iesus Christ, which is our hope. 1 Timothy 1:2 Unto Timothe hys naturall sonne in the fayth. Grace mercy and peace from God oure father, & from þe Lord Iesus Christ our Lorde. 1 Timothy 1:3 As I besought the to abyde styll at Ephesus (when I departed into Macedonia) euen so do, that þu commaunde some, that they folowe no straunge doctrine, 1 Timothy 1:4 nether geue hede to fables & endles genealogyes whych brede doubtes more then Godlye edifyinge, which is by fayth
Of the right use and end of the Law.
1 Timothy 1:5 for the ende of the commaundement is, loue out of a pure herte, and of a good conscience, and of fayth vnfayned: from the whych thynges, 1 Timothy 1:6 because some haue erred, they are turned vnto vayne iangelynge, 1 Timothy 1:7 because they wolde be doctours of the lawe, and yet vnderstande not what they speake, nether wherof they affyrme. 1 Timothy 1:8 We knowe, that the lawe is good, yf a man vse it lawfully: 1 Timothy 1:9 knowynge thys, howe that the lawe is not geuen vnto a ryghteous man, but vnto the vnryghteous and disobedyent, to the vngodly and to synners, to vnholy and vncleane: to murtherers of fathers and murtherers of mothers, to manstears, 1 Timothy 1:10 to whormongers: to them that defyle them selues whyth mankynde: to manstealers: to lyars, to periured, and yf ther be eny other thynge that is contrary to the holsome doctryne,
Of Paul's calling to be an apostle,
1 Timothy 1:11 accordynge to the Gospell of the glory of the blessed God, whych Gospell is commytted vnto me. 1 Timothy 1:12 And I thanke Chryst Iesus oure Lorde, whych hath made me stronge: for he counted me true, and put me in offyce 1 Timothy 1:13 where as before I was a blasphemer, and a persecuter, & a Tyraunt. But yet I obtayned mercy, because I dyd it ignorauntly thorowe vnbelefe. 1 Timothy 1:14 Neuerthelesse, þe grace of oure Lorde was exceadynge aboundaunt with fayth and loue, whych is by Christ Iesu. 1 Timothy 1:15 This is a true sayinge (and by all meanes worthy to be receaued of vs) þt Chryst Iesus came into þe worlde, to saue synners, of whom I am chefe. 1 Timothy 1:16 Not wythstandynge for this cause optayned I mercy, that Iesus Christ shulde fyrst shewe on me all longe pacience, to declare an ensample vnto them which shulde beleue on him vnto eternall lyfe. 1 Timothy 1:17 So then vnto God, kynge euerlastynge, immortall inuisyble, wyse onely, be honoure and prayse for euer and euer. Amen. 1 Timothy 1:18 Thys commaundement commyt I vnto the sonne Timotheus accordynge to the prophesyes, whych in tyme past were prophesyed of the, that thou in them shuldest fyght a good fyght, 1 Timothy 1:19 hauynge fayth and good conscyence: whych some haue put awaye from them, and as concernynge fayth haue made shypwracke.
and of Hymenaeus and Alexander.
1 Timothy 1:20 Of whose nombre is Hymeneus and Alexander whom I haue delyuered vnto Satan, that they maye lerne not to blaspheme.
