From Textus Receptus

  • 1 Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honor, so that the name of God and His doctrine may not be blasphemed.
  • 2 And those who have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren, but rather serve them because those who are benefited are faithful and beloved. Teach and exhort these things.
  • 3 If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent 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 is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions,
  • 5 useless disputations of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that gain is godliness. From such withdraw yourself.
  • 6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain.
  • 7 Because, we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
  • 8 And having food and clothing, with these we should be content.
  • 9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.
  • 10 Because, the love of money is the root of all evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their covetousness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
  • 11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
  • 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed a good confession before of many witnesses.
  • 13 I command you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed a good confession before Pontius Pilate,
  • 14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 15 which He will reveal in His own timeframe, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
  • 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
  • 17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be arrogant, nor to 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 share,
  • 19 storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
  • 20 O Timothy! Guard that which was committed to your trust, avoiding profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called science,
  • 21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.

The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the largest city of Phrygia Pacatiana.
