right use and end of the law. 11 Of Saint Paul's
calling to be an apostle, 20 and of Hymeneus and
Alexander.

PAUL, an apostle of Jesus Christ "■ by the
commandment ''of God our Saviour, and
Lord Josus Christ, "which is our hope ;

2 Unto ■'Timothy, '=my own son in the
faith ; ^ Grace, mercy, and peace, from God
our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

3 As I besought thee to abide still at
Ephesus, e when I Went into Macedonia,
that thou mightest charge some ^ that they
teach no other doctrine,

4 ' Neither give heed to fables and endless
genealogies, ^ which minister questions, rat-her
than godly edifying which is in faith ; so do.

5 Now ' the end of the commandment is
charity ™ out of a pure heart, and of a good
conscience, and ojf faith unfeigned :

6 From which some || having swerved, have
turned aside unto "vain jangling ;

7 Desiring to be teachers of the law ;
"understanding neither what they say, nor
whereof they affirm.

8 But we know that p the law is good,
if a man use it lawfully ;

That it is meet to pray and give thanks for all men,
and the reason why. 9 How women should be attired.
12 They are not ■permitted to teach. 15 They shall be
saved, notwithstanding the testimonies of God's wrath,
in child-birth, if they continue in faith.

Ill EXHORT therefore, that, first of all,
supplications, prayers, intercessions, and
giving of thanks be made for all men :

2 "For kings, and ^for all that are in
II authority ; that we may lead a quiet and
peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

3 For this is "good and acceptable in the
sight •'of God our Saviour ;

4 ^Who will have all men to be saved,
''and to come unto the knowledge of the
truth.

5 eFor there is one God, and ''one me-
diator between God and men, the man Christ
Jesus ;

6 'Who gave himself a ransom for all,
"= II to be testified ' in due time.

7 ■" Whereunto I am ordained a preacher
and an apostle, ("I speak the truth in Christ,
and lie not,) °a teacher of the Gentiles in
faith and verity.

8 I will therefore that men pray p every
where, ^lifting up holy hands, without vFrath
and doubting.

9 In like manner also, that 'women
adorn themselves in modest apparel, with
shamefacedness and sobriety; not with
II broidered hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly
array,

10 =But (which becometh women pro-
fessing godliness) with good works.

11 Let the woman learn in silence with
all subjection.

12 But 'I suffer not a woman to teach,
"nor to usurp authority over the man, but to
be in silence.

Eve.

How bishops, Sfc. should be qualified.

the woman being deceived was in the trans-
gression.

15 Notwithstanding, she shall be saved in
child-bearing, if they continue in faith, and
charity, and holiness, with sobriety.

CHAP. III.

2 How bishops, and deacons, and their wives should be
qualified, 14 and to what end Saint Paul wrote to
Timothy of these things. 15 Of the church, and the
blessed truth therein taught and professed.

THIS * is a true saying. If a man desire
the office of a ''bishop, he deslreth a
gobd "work.

2 ^ A bishop then must be blameless, ^the
husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, || of good
behaviour, given to hospitality, ""apt to teach;

3 s II Not given to wine, •■ no striker, ' not
greedy of filthy lucre ; but ^ patient ; not a
brawler, not covetous ;

4 One that ruleth well his own house,
'having his children in subjection with all
gravity ;

5 (For. if a man know not how to riile his
own nouse, how shall he take care of the
church of God ?)

6 Not II a-novice, lest being lifted up with
pride ■" he fall into the condemnation of the
devil.

7 Moreover, he must have a good report
•■of them which are without; lest he fall
into reproach "and the snare of the devil.

8 Likewise must Pthe deacons be grave,
not double-tongued, inot given to much
wine, not greedy of filthy lucre ;

9 ■■ Holding the mystery of the faith in
a pure conscience.

10 And let these also first be proved;
then let them use the office of a deacon,
being found blameless.

11 "Even so must their wives be grave,
not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

12 Let the deacons be the husbands of
one wife, ruling their children and their own
houses well.

13 For 'they that have || used the office
of a deacon well, purchase to themselves a
good degree, and great boldness in the faith
which is in Christ Jesus.

14 These things write I unto thee, hoping
to come unto 'thee shortly :

15 But if I.tarry long, that thou mayest
know how thou oughtest to behave thyself
" in the house of God, which is the church
of the living God, the pillar and || ground of
the truth.

16 And without controversy, great is the
mystery of godliness : ^ God was f manifest
in the flesh, yjustified in the Spirit, ^ seen of
angels, * preached unto the Gentiles, ""beUeved
on in the world, "received up into glory.

Paul's precepts to Timothy.
CHAP. IV.

I He foretelleth that in the latter times there shall be
a departure from the faith. 6 And to the end that
Timothy might not fail in doing his duty, hefurnish-
eth him with divers precepts belonging thereto.

"VrOW the Spirit ^^speaketh expressly, that
_L\| ''in the latter times some shall depart
from the faith, giving heed "to seducing
spirits, '' and doctrines of devils ;

2 « Speaking lies in hypocrisy, '"having
their conscience seared with a hot iron ;

3 s Forbidding to marry, ^and commanding
to abstain from meats, which God hath cre-
ated 'to be received ''with thanksgiving of
them which believe and know the truth.

4 For 'every creature of God is good, and
nothing to be refused, if it be received with
thanksgiving :

5 For it is sanctified by the word of God,
and prayer.

6 If thou put the_ brethren in remem-
brance of these things, thou shalt be a good
minister of Jesus Christ, "nourished up in
the words of faith and of good doctrine,
whereunto thou hast attained.

7 But "refuse profane and old wives' fables,
and "exercise thyself ra^Aer unto godliness.

8 For p bodily exercise profiteth || little:
"5 but godliness is profitable unto all things,
■^ having promise of the life that now is, and
of that which is to come.

9 *This is a faithful saying, and worthy
of all acceptation.

10 For therefore 'we both labour and
suffer reproach, because we "trust in the
living God ^who is the Saviour of all men,
especially of those that believe.

11 y These things command and teach.

12 ^Let no man despise thy youth; but
°^be thou an example of the believers, in
word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit,
in faith, in purity.

13 Till I come, give attendance to reading,
to exhortation, to doctrine.

14 ''Neglept not the gift that is in thee,
which was given thee " by prophecy, '' with
the laying on of the hands of the pres-
bytery.

15 Meditate upon these things; give thy-
self wholly to them ; that thy profiting may
appear || to all.

16 *Take heed unto thyself, and unto the
doctrine ; continue in them : for in doing
this thou shalt both ''save thyself, and ^them
that hear thee.

Of widows and elders.

REBUKE ^"not an elder, but entreat Mm
as a father ; and the younger men as
brethren ;

2 The elder women as mothers ; the
younger as sisters, with all purity.

3 Honour widows ''that are widows indeed.

4 But if any widow have children or
nephews, let them learn first to shew || piety
at home, and "to requite their parents: •'for
that is good and acceptable before God.

5 "Now she that is a widow indeed, and
desolate, trusteth in God, and ""continueth
in supplications and prayers e night and day.

6 ''But she that liveth || in pleasure, is
dead while she liveth.

7 'And these things give in charge, that
they may be blameless.

8 But if any provide not for his own,
''and especially for those of his own || house,
'he hath denied the faith, ""and is worse
than an infidel.

9 Let not a widow be || taken into the
number under threescore years old, "having
been the wife of one man,

10 Well reported of for good works; if
she have brought up children, if she have
"lodged strangers, if she have p washed the
saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted,
if she have diligently followed every good
work.

1 1 But the younger widows refuse : for
when they have begun to wax wanton against
Christ, they will marry;

12 Having damnation, because they have
cast off their first faith.

13 9 And withal they learn to be idle,
wandering about from house to house ; and
not only idle, but tattlers also, and busybodies,
speaking things which they ought not.

14 ''I will therefore that the younger women
marry, bear children, guide the house, "give
none occasion to the adversary f to speak
reproachfully.

15 For some are already turned aside
after Satan.

16 If any man or woman that believeth
have widows, let them relieve them, and
let not the church be charged ; that it may
relieve 'them that are widows indeed.

17 " Let the elders that rule well, ^ be
counted worthy of double honour, especially
they who labour in the word and doctrine.

18 For the scripture saith, ^Thou shalt
not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the
corn. And, ^The labourer is worthy of his
reward.

19 Against an elder receive not an accu-
sation, but II "before two or three witnesses.

20 ''Them that sin rebuke before all, "thai
others also may fear.

996



The duty of servants.

21 "^I charge thee before God, and the
Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that
thou observe these things || without prefer-
ring one before another, doing nothing by
partiahty.

22 *Lay hands suddenly on no man,
•■ neither be partaker of other men's sins :
keep thyself pure.

23 Drink no longer water, but use a
little wine sfor thy stomach's sake, and thine
often infirmities.

24.'' Some men's sins are open beforehand,
going before to judgment : and some men
they follow after.

25 Likewise also the good works of some
are manifest beforehand ; and they that are
otherwise cannot be hid.

CHAP. VI.

I Of the duty of servants. 3 Not to have fellowship with
new-fangled teachers. 6 Godliness is great gain,
10 and love of money the root of all evil. 1 1 What
Timothy is to fy, and what to follow, 17 and whereof
to admonish the rich. 20 To keep the purity of true
doctrine, and to avoid profane janglings.

LET as many ^ servants as are under the

What Timothy is to flee.

9 But ' they that will be rich, fall into
temptation, « and a snare, and into many fool-
ish and hurtful lusts, ' which drown men in
destruction and perdition.

10 " For the love of money is the
root of all evil : which while some coveted
after, they have || erred from the faith,
and pierced themselves through with many
sorrows. »

11 '^But thou, yO man of God, flee
these things ; and follow after righteous-
ness, godhness, faith, love, patience, meek-
ness.

12 ^ Fight the good fight of faith, » lay
hold on eternal hfe, whereunto thou art also
called, ''and hast professed a good profession
before many witnesses.

13 "I give thee charge in the sight of
God, "> who quickeneth all things, and before
Christ Jesus, «who before Pontius Pilate
witnessed a good | confession ;

14 That thou keep this commandment
without spot, unrebukable, '"until the appear-
ing of our Lord Jesus Christ :

15 Which in his times he shall shew, who
is s the blessed and only Potentate, '' the
King of kings, and Lord of lords ;

16 'Who only hath immortality, dwelling
in the light which no man can approach
unto : ''whom no man hath seen, nor can see ;
' to whom he honour and power everlasting.
Amen.

17 Charge them that are rich in this
world, that they be not high-minded, ■" nor
trust in f "uncertain riches, but in " the liv-
ing God, Pwho giveth us richly all things to
enjoy ;

18 That they do good, that ithey be rich
in good works, ■'ready to distribute, || = willing
to communicate ;

19 ' Laying up in store for themselves a
good foundation against the time to come,
that they may " lay hold on eternal life.

20 O Timothy, 'keep that which is com-
mitted to thy trust, y avoiding profane and
vain babblings, and oppositions of science
falsely so called ;

21 Which some professing, ^ have erred
concerning the faith. Grace he with thee.
Amen.

TT The first to Timothy was written from Laodi-
cea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pa-
catiana.

THE SECOMD EPISTLE OF PAUL, THE APOSTLE, TO

TIMOTHY.



CHAP. I. '

1 Paul's love to Timothy, and the unfeigned faith which
was in Timothy himself, his mother, and grandmother.
6 He is exhorted to stir up the gift of God which was
in him., 8 to be steadfast, and patient in persecution,
13 and to persist in the form and truth of that doctrine
which he had learned of him. 15 Phygellus and
Hermogenes, and such like, are noted, and OuesiphorUs
is highly commended.

PA.UL, * an apostle of Jesus Christ by the
will of God, according to '' the promise of
life which is in Christ Jesus,

2 ■= To Timothy, my dearly beloved son :
Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the
Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

3 •'I thank God, ''whom I serve from my
forefathers with pure conscience, that ^ with-
out ceasing I have remembrance of thee in
my prayers night and day ;

4 e Greatly desiring to see thee, being
mindful of thy tears, that I may be filled
with joy ;

5 When I call to remembrance ""the un-
feigned faith that fs in thee, which dwelt
first in thy grandmother Lois, and ' thy
mother Eunice ; and I am persuaded that
in thee also.

6 Wherefore I put thee in remembrance,
