1 G3745 Let as many G1401 servants G5259 as are under G2218 the yoke G2233 count G2398 their own G1203 masters G514 worthy G3956 of all G5092 honor, G3686 that the name G2316 of God G1319 and his doctrine G987 be not blasphemed.
2 G2192 And they that have G4103 believing G1203 masters, G2706 let them not despise G3754 them, because G80 they are brothers; G3123 but rather G1398 do G1398 them service, G3754 because G4103 they are faithful G27 and beloved, G482 partakers G2108 of the benefit. G5023 These G1321 things teach G3870 and exhort.
3 G1487 If G1536 any G2085 man teach G2085 otherwise, G4334 and consent G5198 not to wholesome G3056 words, G2962 even the words of our Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G1319 and to the doctrine G2596 which is according G2150 to godliness;
4 G5187 He is proud, G1987 knowing G3367 nothing, G3552 but doting G4012 about G2214 questions G3055 and strifes G3055 of words, G1537 whereof G3739 G1096 comes G5355 envy, G2054 strife, G988 railings, G4190 evil G5283 surmisings,
5 G3859 Perverse G3859 disputings G444 of men G1311 of corrupt G3563 minds, G650 and destitute G225 of the truth, G3543 supposing G4200 that gain G2150 is godliness: G5108 from such G868 withdraw yourself.
7 G1533 For we brought G3762 nothing G1519 into G3588 this G2889 world, G1212 and it is certain G1410 we can G1627 carry G3761 nothing G5100 out.
9 G1014 But they that will G4147 be rich G1519 fall into G3986 temptation G3803 and a snare, G1519 and into G4183 many G453 foolish G983 and hurtful G1939 lusts, G3748 which G1036 drown G444 men G3639 in destruction G684 and perdition.
10 G5365 For the love G5365 of money G4491 is the root G3956 of all G2556 evil: G3739 which G5100 while some G3713 coveted G635 after, they have erred G4102 from the faith, G4044 and pierced G1438 themselves G4044 through G4183 with many G3601 sorrows.
11 G444 But you, O man G2316 of God, G5343 flee G5023 these G1377 things; and follow G1343 after righteousness, G2150 godliness, G4102 faith, G26 love, G5281 patience, G4236 meekness.
12 G75 Fight G2570 the good G73 fight G4102 of faith, G1949 lay G1949 hold G1949 on G166 eternal G2222 life, G1519 whereunto G3739 G2532 you are also G2564 called, G3670 and have professed G2570 a good G3671 profession G1799 before G4183 many G3144 witnesses.
13 G3853 I give you charge G1799 in the sight G2316 of God, G3588 who G2227 vivifies G3956 all G5547 things, and before Christ G2424 Jesus, G3588 who G1909 before G4194 Pontius G4091 Pilate G3140 witnessed G2570 a good G3671 confession;
14 G5083 That you keep G3588 this G1785 commandment G784 without G784 spot, G423 unrebukable, G3360 until G2015 the appearing G2962 of our Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ:
15 G3739 Which G5550 in his times G1166 he shall show, G3588 who G3107 is the blessed G3441 and only G1413 Potentate, G935 the King G936 of kings, G2962 and Lord G2961 of lords;
16 G3588 Who G3441 only G2192 has G110 immortality, G3611 dwelling G5457 in the light G3739 which G3762 no G676 man can approach G3739 to; whom G3762 no G444 man G1492 has seen, G3761 nor G1410 can G1492 see: G3739 to whom G5092 be honor G2904 and power G166 everlasting. G281 Amen.
17 G3853 Charge G4145 them that are rich G3588 in this G3568 G165 world, G5309 that they be not high minded, G3366 nor G1679 trust G83 in uncertain G4149 riches, G2198 but in the living G2316 God, G3588 who G3930 gives G4146 us richly G3956 all G619 things to enjoy;
18 G14 That they do G14 good, G4147 that they be rich G2570 in good G2041 works, G2130 ready G2130 to distribute, G2843 willing G2843 to communicate;
19 G597 Laying G597 up in store G1438 for themselves G2570 a good G2310 foundation G1519 against G3195 the time G3195 to come, G1949 that they may lay G1949 hold G1949 on G166 eternal G2222 life.
20 G5095 O Timothy, G5442 keep G3872 that which is committed G1624 to your trust, avoiding G952 profane G2757 and vain G2757 babblings, G477 and oppositions G1108 of science G5581 falsely G5581 so called:
