1 Timothy 6:17-19 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

17 Command thou to the rich men of this world, that they understand not highly, neither that they hope in uncertainty of riches[a], but in the living God, that giveth to us all things plenteously to use;

18 to do well, to be made rich in good works, lightly to give, to commune,

19 to treasure to themselves a good foundament into time to coming [into time to come], that they catch everlasting life.

  1. 1 Timothy 6:17 He addeth for an overplus as it were a sharp admonition to the rich, that they chiefly take heed of two mischiefs, to wit, of pride, and deceitful hope, against which he setteth three excellent virtues, hope in the living God, liberality towards their neighbor, and gentle conditions.
  2. 1 Timothy 6:17 In things pertaining to this life, with whom those men are compared which are rich in good works.
  3. 1 Timothy 6:17 Who only is, and that everlasting: for he setteth the frail nature of riches against God.
  4. 1 Timothy 6:19 The praise of liberality by the effects thereof: because it is a sure testimony of the Spirit of God which dwelleth in us, and therefore of the salvation that shall be given us.
