Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:2 - Those who have believing masters must not be disrespectful on the ground that they are brethren; rather they must serve all the better since those who benefit by their service are believers and beloved. Teach and urge these duties.

Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:3 - If any one teaches otherwise and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching which accords with godliness,

Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:4 - he is puffed up with conceit, he knows nothing; he has a morbid craving for controversy and for disputes about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, base suspicions,

Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:13 - In the presence of God who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession,

Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:14 - I charge you to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:15 - and this will be made manifest at the proper time by the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
