Bible Text  (Scroll to Verse)  [Copy]

1 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.
2 And they that have believing masters, let them not despise [them], because they are brothers; but rather do [them] service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort.
3 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;
4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, of which comes envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds [nous], and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw yourself.
6 But godliness added to having everything you need is a great source of gain.
7 For we brought nothing into [this] world, [and it is] certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be with it content.
9 But those that are continually desiring to be wealthy are continually getting caught in tests and traps, and many confusing and hurtful cravings, which drown mankind in destruction and ruin.
10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of bad things: which some are wearing themselves out to get, have been led astray from the faith, and have tortured themselves with much pain and grief.
11 But you, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, [agape] love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal [zoe] life, to which you are also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.
13 I give you charge in the sight of God, who gives life to all things, and [before] Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;
14 That you keep [this] commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
15 Which in his [kairos] times he will show, [who is] the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
16 Who only has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach to; whom no man has seen, nor can see: to whom [be] honor and power everlasting. Amen.
17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal [zoe] life.
20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to your trust, avoiding profane [and] vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace [be] with you. Amen. <[The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacatiana.]>
