Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:1 - As many as are servants under a yoke, their own masters worthy of all honour let them reckon, that the name of God and the teaching may not be evil spoken of;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:2 - and those having believing masters, let them not slight them, because they are brethren, but rather let them serve, because they are stedfast and beloved, who of the benefit are partaking. These things be teaching and exhorting;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:3 - if any one be teaching otherwise, and do not consent to sound words -- those of our Lord Jesus Christ -- and to the teaching according to piety,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:4 - he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and word-striving, out of which doth come envy, strife, evil-speakings, evil-surmisings,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:5 - wranglings of men wholly corrupted in mind, and destitute of the truth, supposing the piety to be gain; depart from such;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:6 - but it is great gain -- the piety with contentment;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:7 - for nothing did we bring into the world -- it is manifest that we are able to carry nothing out;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:8 - but having food and raiment -- with these we shall suffice ourselves;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:9 - and those wishing to be rich, do fall into temptation and a snare, and many desires, foolish and hurtful, that sink men into ruin and destruction,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:10 - for a root of all the evils is the love of money, which certain longing for did go astray from the faith, and themselves did pierce through with many sorrows;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:11 - and thou, O man of God, these things flee, and pursue righteousness, piety, faith, love, endurance, meekness;
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:12 - be striving the good strife of the faith, be laying hold on the life age-during, to which also thou wast called, and didst profess the right profession before many witnesses.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:13 - I charge thee, before God, who is making all things alive, and of Christ Jesus, who did testify before Pontius Pilate the right profession,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:14 - that thou keep the command unspotted, unblameable, till the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:15 - which in His own times He shall shew -- the blessed and only potentate, the King of the kings and Lord of the lords,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:16 - who only is having immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable, whom no one of men did see, nor is able to see, to whom is honour and might age-during! Amen.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:17 - Those rich in the present age charge thou not to be high-minded, nor to hope in the uncertainty of riches, but in the living God, who is giving to us all things richly for enjoyment; --
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:18 - to do good, to be rich in good works, to be ready to impart, willing to communicate,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:19 - treasuring up to themselves a right foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on the life age-during.
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:20 - O Timotheus, the thing entrusted guard thou, avoiding the profane vain-words and opposition of the falsely-named knowledge,
Unchecked Copy Box1Ti 6:21 - which certain professing -- concerning the faith did swerve; the grace is with you. Amen.
