New Testament - Timothy 1
5 Now the fulfillment of the commandment is love out of a pure heart and of a good conscience and of a true faith,
6 From which some have gone astray and have turned aside to foolish words,
7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; not understanding what they speak, nor even whereof they argue.
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 the righteous, but for the wicked and rebellious, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the profane and unholy, for those who abuse their fathers and ill-treat their mothers, for murderers,
10 For whoremongers, for those who defile themselves with males, for kidnappers of well-born sons, for liars, for perjurers, and for whatever is contrary to sound doctrine;
11 This is according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was entrusted to me.
18 This charge I commit to you, my son Timotheus, in accordance with the prophecies given before about you, that you might fight a good fight.
6 But she who lives wholly for pleasure is dead while she lives.
18 For the scripture says, You shall not muzzle the ox that threshes. And again, The laborer is worthy of his hire.
5 And strife among men whose minds are corrupt and who are cut off from the truth and who think worshipping God is for worldly gain; keep away from such people.
6 But our gain is greater contentment, for it is the worship of God.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain that we can carry nothing out.
8 Therefore, let us be satisfied with food and clothing;
9 For those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and snares, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts which drown men in degeneration and destruction.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil; and there are some men who have coveted it and have thereby erred from the faith, and have brought to themselves many sorrows.
11 But you, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, piety, faith, love, patience, and meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold upon eternal life to which you are called, having made a true profession before many witnesses.
17 Charge those who are rich in this world that they be not proud, nor trust in the uncertainty of riches, but in the living God who gives us all things so abundantly for our comfort.
18 That they do good works, and become rich in good deeds, and be ready to give and willing to share,
19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold upon the true life.
20 O Timothy, be careful of that which is entrusted to you; flee from empty echoes and from the perversion of false science.
