Instructions to the Rich

17 Instruct those who are rich in the present age not to be arrogant(A) or to set their hope on the uncertainty of wealth, but on God,[a] who richly provides us with all things(B) to enjoy. 18 Instruct them to do what is good, to be rich in good works,(C) to be generous and willing to share,(D) 19 storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the coming age,(E) so that they may take hold of what is truly life.

Guard the Heritage

20 Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you,(F) avoiding(G) irreverent and empty speech and contradictions from what is falsely called knowledge.(H) 21 By professing it, some(I) people have departed from the faith.(J)

Grace be with you all.
