1 Timothy 1:13-16

Rotherham(i) 13 Though, formerly, a defamer, and persecutor, and insulter; nevertheless mercy was shown me, because, without knowledge, I acted, in unbelief: 14 Yet exceeding abundant was the favour of our Lord, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 15 Faithful, the saying! and, of all acceptance, worthy,—that, Christ Jesus, came into the world, sinners, to save: of whom, the chief, am, I;— 16 Nevertheless, on this account, was mercy shewn me,—that, in me, the chief, Christ Jesus might shew forth his entire longsuffering, for an ensample of them about to believe on him unto life age-abiding.
