1 Timothy 1
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1PAUL, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Christ Jesus, our hope;

2To Ti-mo’the-us, a true son in the faith: Grace, mercy and peace from God, our Father, and Christ Jesus our LORD.

3When I went to Mac-e-do’ni-a, I besought you to remain at Eph'e-sus, so that you might charge certain ones not to teach diverse doctrines, 4And not to give heed to fables and stories of endless genealogies, which cause dispute, rather than build up the faith of God. 5Now the fulfillment of the commandment is love out of a pure heart and of a good conscience and of a true faith: 6From which some have gone astray and have turned aside to foolish words; 7Desiring to be teachers of the law; not understanding what they speak, nor even whereof they argue.

8But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 9Knowing this, that the law is not made for the righteous, but for the wicked and rebellious, for the ungodly, and for sinners, for the profane and unholy, for those who abuse their fathers and ill-treat their mothers, for murderers, 10For whoremongers, for those who defile themselves with mankind, for kidnappers of well-born sons, for liars, for perjurers, and for whatever is contrary to sound doctrine; 11According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was entrusted to me.

12And I thank our LORD Jesus Christ who has given me strength, and has counted me trustworthy, and has appointed me to his ministry; 13Who was before a blasphemer and a persecutor and a reviler; but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14Now the grace of our LORD has become abundant in me, as well as my faith and love in Jesus Christ. 15This is a trustworthy saying and worthy of all acceptation, that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 16Howbeit for this cause he had mercy on me, that in me first Jesus Christ may shew forth all patience, for a pattern to those who should hereafter believe in him to life everlasting. 17Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

18This charge I commit to you, my son Timo’the- us, in accordance with the prophecies given before about you, that you might fight a good fight; 19In faith and good conscience; those who have rejected this charge have lost their faith: 20Namely Hy-me-næ’us and Al-ex-an-der, whom I have delivered to Satan, to be disciplined so that they may no longer blaspheme.
