17 As for the rich in (A)this present age, charge them (B)not to be haughty, nor (C)to set their hopes on (D)the uncertainty of riches, but on God, (E)who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 18 They are to do good, (F)to be rich in good works, to be generous and (G)ready to share, 19 thus (H)storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may (I)take hold of (J)that which is truly life.

20 O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. (K)Avoid the (L)irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” 21 for by professing it some have swerved from the faith.

(M)Grace be with you.[a]
