Paul’s Greeting to Timothy
(2 Timothy 1:1–2)

1Paul, the sent of Jesus Christ according to the command of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, our hope;

2To Timothy, genuine child in the faith: Grace, mercy, peace, from God our Father, and Jesus Christ our Lord.

Correcting False Teachers
(Titus 1:10–16)

3As I besought thee to remain in Ephesus, going into Macedonia, that thou mightest proclaim to some not to teach another doctrine, 4Neither hold to fictions and endless genealogies, which offer questions, rather than the arrangement of God in the faith: 5(And the end of the proclamation is love out of a pure heart, and a good consciousness, and unfeigned faith: 6Which some having missed turned away to vain discourse. 7Wishing to be teachers of the law; neither understanding what they say, nor of certain things they are assured.

8And we know the law good, if any use it lawfully; 9Knowing this, that the law is laid down not for the just one, but for the lawless and disorderly, for the profane and sinful, for the wicked and unholy, for the patricides and matricides, for manslayers, 10For fornicators, unchaste, manstealers, liars, the perjured, and if there be any other thing opposed to sound doctrine; 11According to the good news of the glory of the blessed God, with which I was entrusted.

God’s Grace to Paul

12And I am grateful to Christ Jesus our Lord, having strengthened me, for he deemed me faithful, having set me in the service; 13Being before slandering, expelling, and an abuser: but I was commiserated, because I did, not knowing, in unbelief. 14And the grace of our Lord superabounded with faith and love in Christ Jesus. 15Faithful the word, and worthy of all acceptance, for Christ Jesus came into the world to save the sinful; of whom I am first. 16But for this was I commiserated, that in me first Jesus Christ might show forth all longsuffering, for a model to them about to believe on him to eternal life. 17And to the King of times, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, honour and glory for the times of times. Amen.)

18This proclamation I set before thee, child Timothy, according to the gifts of prophecy led before upon thee, that thou in them mightest war the good warfare; 19Having faith, and a good consciousness; which some having rejected concerning faith suffered shipwreck: 20Of whom is Hymeneus and Alexander; whom I have delivered to Satan, that they should not be taught to blaspheme.
