2nd Thessalonians 3.

The Book of 1st Timothy

Return to IndexHenry's Commentary

.

Chapter 1

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 aend of the commandment is 1charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
1 Matt 7:12, Luke 6:31, Rom 13:8

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 1mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
1 Matt 12:32

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 1sinners; of whom I am chief.
1 Matt 9:13, Matt 18:11, Luke 19:10, Rom 5:8, 1st John 3:5

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 Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

1st Timothy 2
