1 Timothy 1 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)
1 Paul, [the] apostle of Jesus Christ, by the commandment of God our Saviour, and of Jesus Christ our hope,
2 to Timothy, beloved son in the faith, grace and mercy and peace, of God the Father, and of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
3 As I prayed thee, that thou shouldest dwell at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou shouldest command to some men [that thou shouldest announce, or warn, to some], that they should not teach other way,
4 neither give attention to fables and genealogies that be uncertain [and genealogies without end], which give questions, more than edification of God, that is in the faith [that is in faith].
5 For the end of the commandment is charity of clean heart, and good conscience, and of faith not feigned.
6 From which things some men have erred, and be turned into vain speech; [From which things some erring, be turned together into vain speech;]
7 and will to be teachers of the law, and understand not what things they speak[a], neither of what things they affirm.
8 And we know that the law is good, if any man use it lawfully;
9 and witting this thing, that the law is not set to a just man, but to unjust men and not subject, to wicked men and to sinners, to cursed men and defouled, to slayers of father, and slayers of mother, to manslayers [witting this thing, that the law is not put to a just man, but to an unjust and not subject, to unpious men and sinners, to cursed men and defouled, to slayers of fathers, and slayers of mothers, to menslayers]
10 and lechers, to them that do lechery with men, lying-mongers and forsworn, and if any other thing is contrary to the wholesome teaching,[b]
11 that is after the gospel of the glory of blessed God, which is betaken to me.
12 I do thankings to him, that [hath] comforted me in Christ Jesus our Lord, for he guessed me faithful, and put me in ministry [putting me in ministry],
13 that first was a blasphemer [the which I first was a blasphemer], and a pursuer, and full of wrongs. But I have gotten the mercy of God, for I unknowing did in unbelief.
14 But the grace of our Lord over abounded, with faith and love that is in Christ Jesus.
15 A true word and worthy all receiving, for Christ Jesus came into this world to make sinful men safe, of which I am the first [of whom I am the first].
16 But therefore I have gotten mercy, that Christ Jesus should show in me first all patience, to the informing of them that shall believe to him into everlasting life.
17 And to the king of worlds, undeadly and invisible God alone [to God alone], be honour and glory into worlds of worlds. Amen.
18 I betake this commandment to thee, thou son Timothy, after the prophecies that have been heretofore in thee, that thou travail in them a good travail, [I commend this precept to thee, son Timothy, after prophecies before-going in thee, that thou fight in them a good knighthood,]
19 having faith and good conscience, which some men cast away, and perished about the faith [the which some casting away, perished about the faith].
20 Of which is Hymenaeus and Alexander [Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander], whom I betook to Satan, that they learn not to blaspheme.
1 Timothy 1 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
He exhorts Timothy to attend to his office; namely, to see that nothing is taught but God’s word, etc. He shows also for what the law is good, and tells this sweet and glad tidings: Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners.
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who is our hope.
2 To Timothy, his true-born son in the faith.
Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
3 As I besought you to continue in Ephesus when I departed into Macedonia, so do, and direct certain men to teach no other way, 4 neither to give heed to legends and genealogies, which are endless and breed doubts more than godly edifying, which is by faith. 5 For the end of the commandment is love that comes of a pure heart and a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned – 6 from which things some have erred, and have turned to vain prattle, 7 because they want to be teachers of the scripture and yet do not understand what they speak, nor the things they assert.
8 We know that the law is good if one abides by it lawfully, 9 understanding that the law is not given for a righteous person, but for the unrighteous and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and unclean, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for man-slayers 10 and whoremongers, for those who defile themselves with menkind, for kidnappers, for liars and perjurers, and so forth, if there be any other thing that is contrary to wholesome precept, 11 according to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God, which gospel is committed to me.
12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has made me strong. For he counted me true and put me in office, 13 when before I was a blasphemer and a persecutor, and full of violence. But I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly, through unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord abounded more greatly with faith and love, which is in Christ Jesus.
15 This is a true saying, and by all means worthy to be received: that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. 16 But notwithstanding, mercy was given to me, so that Jesus Christ could first show on me all long patience, as an example for those who will in time to come believe on him unto eternal life. 17 So then, to God the King everlasting, immortal, invisible, and alone wise, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
18 This charge I commit to you, son Timotheus, according to the prophecies that in time past were prophesied of you, so that you in them will fight a good fight, 19 having faith and a good conscience – which some have put away from them, and as concerning faith have made shipwreck. 20 Of this number are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have delivered to Satan so that they might be taught not to blaspheme.
1 Timothy 1 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
The First Epistle of Paul to Timothy
1 Setting forth a perfect pattern of a true Pastor, whose office especially consisteth in teaching, 4 he warneth him that vain questions set apart, he teach those things, 5 which further charity and faith: 12 and that his authority be not condemned, 14 he showeth what an one he is made through the grace of God.
2 Unto Timothy my natural son in the faith: Grace, [c]mercy, and peace from God our Father, and from Christ Jesus our Lord.
3 [d]As I besought thee to abide still in Ephesus, when I departed into Macedonia, so do, that thou mayest warn some, that they teach none other doctrine,
6 [j]From the which things some have erred, and have turned unto vain jangling.
7 [k]They would be doctors of the Law, and yet understand not what they speak, neither whereof they affirm.
8 [l]And we know, that the Law is good, if a man use it lawfully.
9 [m]Knowing this, that the Law is not given unto a [n]righteous man, but unto the lawless and disobedient, to the ungodly, and to [o]sinners, to the unholy, and to the profane, to murderers of fathers and mothers, to manslayers,
10 To whoremongers, to buggerers, to menstealers, to liars, to the perjured, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to wholesome doctrine,
13 When before I was a [t]blasphemer, and a persecutor, and an oppressor: but I was received to mercy: for I did it ignorantly through unbelief.
14 But the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant [u]with faith and love, which is in Christ Jesus.
16 Notwithstanding for this cause was I received to mercy, that Jesus Christ should first show on me all long suffering unto the ensample of them, which shall in time to come believe in him unto eternal life.
1 Timothy 1 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; 2 unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
3 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, 4 neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. 5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 6 from which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; 7 desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. 8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 9 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.
12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; 13 who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. 15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting. 17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; 19 holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck: 20 of whom is Hymenæus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
