1 G3972 Paul, G652 an apostle G5547 of Christ G2424 Jesus G2596 according G2003 to the commandment G2316 of God G2257 our G4990 Savior, G2532 and G2962 G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus G2257 our G1680 hope;
2 G5095 to Timothy, G1103 my true G5043 child G1722 in G4102 faith: G5485 Grace, G1656 mercy, G1515 and peace, G575 from G2316 God G2257 our G3962 Father G2532 and G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus G2257 our G2962 Lord.
3 G2531 As G3870 I urged G4571 you G4198 when I was going G1519 into G3109 Macedonia, G4357 stay G1722 at G2181 Ephesus G2443 that G3853 you might command G5100 certain G3361 men not G2085 to teach G2085 a different doctrine,
4 G3366 neither G4337 to pay attention to G3454 myths G2532 and G562 endless G1076 genealogies, G3748 which G3930 cause G2214 disputes, G3123 rather G2228 than G2316 God's G3620 stewardship, G3588 which is G1722 in G4102 faith—
5 G1161 but G5056 the goal G1537 of G3852 this command G2076 is G1537 love, out of G2513 a pure G2588 heart G2532 and G18 a good G4893 conscience G2532 and G505 sincere G4102 faith;
6 G3739 from which G5100 things some, G795 having missed the mark, G1624 have turned aside G1519 to G3150 vain talking;
7 G2309 desiring G1511 to be G3547 teachers of the law, G3539 though they understand G3383 neither G3739 what G3004 they say, G3383 nor G3739 about what G1226 they strongly affirm.
8 G1161 But G1492 we know G3754 that G3551 the law G2570 is good, G1437 if G5100 a man G5530 uses G846 it G3545 lawfully,
9 G1492 as knowing G5124 this, G3754 that G3551 law G2749 is G3756 not G2749 made for G1342 a righteous man, G1161 but G459 for the lawless G2532 and G506 insubordinate, G765 for the ungodly G2532 and G268 sinners, G462 for the unholy G2532 and G952 profane, G3964 for murderers of fathers G2532 and G3389 murderers of mothers, G409 for manslayers,
10 G4205 for the sexually immoral, G733 for homosexuals, G405 for slave-traders, G5583 for liars, G1965 for perjurers, G2532 and G480 for G5100 any G480 other G2087 thing G480 contrary to G5198 the sound G1319 doctrine;
11 G2596 according to G2098 the Good News G1391 of the glory G3107 of the blessed G2316 God, G3739 which G4100 was committed to G1473 my G4100 trust.
12 G2532 And G2192 I G5485 thank G1743 him who enabled G3165 me, G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus G2257 our G2962 Lord, G3754 because G2233 he counted G3165 me G4103 faithful, G5087 appointing me G1519 to G1248 service;
13 G5607 although I was G4386 before G989 a blasphemer, G2532 a G1376 persecutor, G2532 and G5197 insolent. G235 However, G1653 I obtained mercy, G3754 because G4160 I did G50 it ignorantly G1722 in G570 unbelief.
14 G1161 The G5485 grace G2257 of our G2962 Lord G5250 abounded G3326 exceedingly with G4102 faith G2532 and G26 love G3588 which is G1722 in G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus.
15 G3588 The G3056 saying G4103 is faithful G2532 and G514 worthy G3956 of all G594 acceptance, G3754 that G5547 Christ G2424 Jesus G2064 came G1519 into G2889 the world G4982 to save G268 sinners; G3739 of whom G1473 I G1510 am G4413 chief.
16 G235 However, G1223 for G5124 this cause G1653 I obtained mercy, G2443 that G1722 in G1698 me G4413 first, G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G1731 might display G3956 all G4314 his patience, for G5296 an example G3195 of those who were going G1519 to G4100 believe G1909 in G846 him G1519 for G166 eternal G2222 life.
17 G1161 Now G935 to the King G165 eternal, G862 immortal, G517 invisible, G2316 to God G3441 who alone G4680 is wise, G5092 be honor G2532 and G1391 glory G165 forever G2532 and G165 ever. G281 Amen.
18 G3778 This G3852 instruction G3908 I commit G2596 to G4671 you, G5043 my child G5095 Timothy, G2596 according to G4394 the prophecies G4254 which led G1909 the way G4571 to you, G2443 that G1722 by G846 them G4754 you may wage G2570 the good G4754 warfare;
19 G2192 holding G4102 faith G2532 and G18 a good G4893 conscience; G3739 which G5100 some G683 having thrust away G3489 made a shipwreck G4012 concerning G4102 the faith;
