1 Timothy 1:1-11 Modern English Version (MEV)

Salutation

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the command of God our Savior, and of the Lord Jesus Christ, our hope,

To Timothy, my true son in the faith:

Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

Warning Against False Doctrine

As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, continue to remain at Ephesus so that you might command some to teach no other doctrine, nor pay attention to fables and endless genealogies, which cause debates rather than godly edifying, which is in faith. Now the goal of this command is love from a pure heart, and from a good conscience, and from sincere faith. From this, some have lost their way and turned aside to empty talk, desiring to be teachers of the law, and understanding neither what they say nor what they affirm.

But we know that the law is good if someone uses it lawfully. And we know that the law is not given for a righteous person, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and the profane, for those who kill their fathers and mothers, for murderers, 10 for the sexually immoral, for sodomites, for slave traders, for liars, for perjurers, and for anything else that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

1 Timoteo 1:1-11 Reina-Valera 1960 (RVR1960)

Salutación

Pablo, apóstol de Jesucristo por mandato de Dios nuestro Salvador, y del Señor Jesucristo nuestra esperanza,

a Timoteo, verdadero hijo en la fe: Gracia, misericordia y paz, de Dios nuestro Padre y de Cristo Jesús nuestro Señor.

Advertencia contra falsas doctrinas

Como te rogué que te quedases en Efeso, cuando fui a Macedonia, para que mandases a algunos que no enseñen diferente doctrina,

ni presten atención a fábulas y genealogías interminables, que acarrean disputas más bien que edificación de Dios que es por fe, así te encargo ahora.

Pues el propósito de este mandamiento es el amor nacido de corazón limpio, y de buena conciencia, y de fe no fingida,

de las cuales cosas desviándose algunos, se apartaron a vana palabrería,

queriendo ser doctores de la ley, sin entender ni lo que hablan ni lo que afirman.

Pero sabemos que la ley es buena, si uno la usa legítimamente;

conociendo esto, que la ley no fue dada para el justo, sino para los transgresores y desobedientes, para los impíos y pecadores, para los irreverentes y profanos, para los parricidas y matricidas, para los homicidas,

10 para los fornicarios, para los sodomitas, para los secuestradores, para los mentirosos y perjuros, y para cuanto se oponga a la sana doctrina,

11 según el glorioso evangelio del Dios bendito, que a mí me ha sido encomendado.

1 Timothy 1:1-11 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.

As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: from which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
