1 G3972 Paul G652 , an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ G2596 by G2003 the commandment G2316 of God G2257 our G4990 Saviour G2532 , and G2962 Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G3588 , which G2257 is our G1680 hope;
2 G5095 Unto Timothy G1103 , my own G5043 son G1722 in G4102 the faith G5485 : Grace G1656 , mercy G1515 , and peace G575 , from G2316 God G2257 our G3962 Father G2532 and G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G2257 our G2962 Lord.
3 G2531 As G3870 I besought [G5656] G4571 thee G4357 to abide still [G5658] G1722 at G2181 Ephesus G4198 , when I went [G5740] G1519 into G3109 Macedonia G2443 , that G3853 thou mightest charge [G5661] G5100 some G2085 that they teach G3361 no G2085 other doctrine [G5721] ,
4 G3366 Neither G4337 give heed [G5721] G3454 to fables G2532 and G562 endless G1076 genealogies G3748 , which G3930 minister [G5719] G2214 questions G3123 , rather G2228 than G2316 godly G3620 edifying G3588 which G1722 is in G4102 faith: so do .
5 G1161 Now G5056 the end G3852 of the commandment G2076 is [G5748] G26 charity G1537 out of G2513 a pure G2588 heart G2532 , and G18 of a good G4893 conscience G2532 , and G4102 of faith G505 unfeigned:
6 G3739 From which G5100 some G795 having swerved [G5660] G1624 have turned aside [G5648] G1519 unto G3150 vain jangling;
7 G2309 Desiring [G5723] G1511 to be [G5750] G3547 teachers of the law G3361 ; G3539 understanding [G5723] G3383 neither G3739 what G3004 they say [G5719] G3383 , nor G4012 whereof G5101 G1226 they affirm [G5736] .
8 G1161 But G1492 we know [G5758] G3754 that G3551 the law G2570 is good G1437 , if G5100 a man G5530 use [G5741] G846 it G3545 lawfully;
9 G1492 Knowing [G5761] G5124 this G3754 , that G3551 the law G2749 is G3756 not G2749 made [G5736] G1342 for a righteous man G1161 , but G459 for the lawless G2532 and G506 disobedient G765 , for the ungodly G2532 and G268 for sinners G462 , for unholy G2532 and G952 profane G3964 , for murderers of fathers G2532 and G3389 murderers of mothers G409 , for manslayers,
10 G4205 For whoremongers G733 , for them that defile themselves with mankind G405 , for menstealers G5583 , for liars G1965 , for perjured persons G2532 , and G1536 if there be any G2087 other thing G480 that is contrary [G5736] G5198 to sound [G5723] G1319 doctrine;
11 G2596 According G1391 to the glorious G2098 gospel G3107 of the blessed G2316 God G3739 , which G4100 was committed to G1473 my G4100 trust [G5681] .
12 G2532 And G2192 I thank [G5719] G5485 G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus G2257 our G2962 Lord G3588 , who G1743 hath enabled [G5660] G3165 me G3754 , for G2233 that he counted [G5662] G3165 me G4103 faithful G5087 , putting me [G5642] G1519 into G1248 the ministry;
13 G3588 Who G5607 was [G5752] G4386 before G989 a blasphemer G2532 , and G1376 a persecutor G2532 , and G5197 injurious G235 : but G1653 I obtained mercy [G5681] G3754 , because G4160 I did [G5656] G50 it ignorantly [G5723] G1722 in G570 unbelief.
14 G1161 And G5485 the grace G2257 of our G2962 Lord G5250 was exceeding abundant [G5656] G3326 with G4102 faith G2532 and G26 love G3588 which G1722 is in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus.
15 G4103 This is a faithful G3056 saying G2532 , and G514 worthy G3956 of all G594 acceptation G3754 , that G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus G2064 came [G5627] G1519 into G2889 the world G4982 to save [G5658] G268 sinners G3739 ; of whom G1473 I G1510 am [G5748] G4413 chief.
16 G235 Howbeit G5124 for this G1223 cause G1653 I obtained mercy [G5681] G2443 , that G1722 in G1698 me G4413 first G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G1731 might shew forth [G5672] G3956 all G3115 longsuffering G4314 , for G5296 a pattern G3195 to them which should hereafter [G5723] G4100 believe [G5721] G1909 on G846 him G1519 to G2222 life G166 everlasting.
17 G1161 Now G935 unto the King G165 eternal G862 , immortal G517 , invisible G3441 , the only G4680 wise G2316 God G5092 , be honour G2532 and G1391 glory G1519 for G165 ever G165 and ever G281 . Amen.
18 G5026 This G3852 charge G3908 I commit [G5731] G4671 unto thee G5043 , son G5095 Timothy G2596 , according to G4394 the prophecies G4254 which went before [G5723] G1909 on G4571 thee G2443 , that G4754 thou G1722 by G846 them G4754 mightest war [G5735] G2570 a good G4752 warfare;
19 G2192 Holding [G5723] G4102 faith G2532 , and G18 a good G4893 conscience G3739 ; which G5100 some G683 having put away [G5666] G4012 concerning G4102 faith G3489 have made shipwreck [G5656] :
