13 I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus (A)who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing, 15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only [a]Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in (B)unapproachable light, (C)whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.

Instructions to the Rich

17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain (D)riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things (E)to enjoy. 18 Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, 19 (F)storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Guard the Faith

20 O Timothy! (G)Guard what was committed to your trust, (H)avoiding the profane and [b]idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge— 21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith.

Grace be with you. Amen.
