1 Timothy 1
1 2 3 4 5 6
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of
God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;
Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from
God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
3 As I besought thee to
abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge
some that they teach no other doctrine,
4 Neither give heed to fables
and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying
which is in faith: so do.
5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure

Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn
not to blaspheme.
