Modern Literal Version

[1 Timothy 6]

     6:1 As many as are bondservants under the yoke, let* them deem their own masters worthy of all honor, in order that the name of God and the teaching may not be blasphemed. 6:2 But those who have believing masters, let* them not despise them, because they are brethren, but rather let*them serve* them, because they are believing and beloved who are helped from the good* work. Teach and encourage these things.

     6:3 If anyone is teaching a different teaching and is not coming near to sound* words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and to the teaching which is according to devoutness; 6:4 he has been puffed up, knowing nothing, but being mentally diseased concerning debates and quarrels over words, out of which become: envy, strife, blasphemies, evil suspicions, 6:5 incessant wranglings of men who have been corrupted in the mind and who have been deprived of the truth, supposing that devoutness is a method to earnings. Withdraw yourself from such.

     6:6 But devoutness with contentment is a great method to earnings; 6:7 for* we brought nothing into the world, nor is it evident that we are able to carry anything out; {Job 1:21}6:8 but we will be content with these things, having nourishments and clothes. 6:9 But those who are planning to be rich are falling into a temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful lusts, which are submerging men into utter-destruction and everlasting destruction. 6:10 For* the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils; of which some aspiring to, were misled from the faith and they themselves are staked-through by many sorrows.

     6:11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue: righteousness, devoutness, faith, love*, endurance, meekness. 6:12 Fight the good fight of the faith, grab the everlasting life, to which you were called and professed the good confession in the sight of many witnesses. 6:13 I am commanding you in God's sight, who gives-life to all things and of Christ Jesus, who in front of Pontius Pilate testified the good confession; 6:14for you to keep the commandment, unstained, unimpeachable, till the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ. 6:15 Which in its own times, he will show, the Blessed* and only Sovereign, the King of those who are reigning, and a Lord of those who have lordship over others; 6:16 he who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light; whom no one from mankind has seen, nor is able to see: to whom is honor and everlasting dominion. Amen.

     6:17 Command the rich in this current age, not to be cavalier, nor to have hope on theuncertainty of riches, but have hope in the living God, who is richly providing to us all things toward enjoyment; 6:18also command them to work what is good, to be rich in good works, to be liberal in giving, generous, 6:19 storing up for themselves a good foundation toward the future, in order that they may grab the everlasting life.

     6:20 O Timothy, guard the deposit consigned to you, turning away from the profane empty-talks and oppositions of the falsely named knowledge; 6:21 which some professing have deviated concerning the faith.

     Grace is with you. Amen.

{{ Introduction to 2 Timothy 65 AD

    Paul wrote this Letter to Timothy (1:2) and taught Timothy the Good-news, and they did a great deal of work together preaching the Good-news. To give instructions and encouragement to Timothy and all future preachers and teachers of not being ashamed of God's word, and to hold fast to the pattern of sound words delivered by Paul and other apostles and prophets. Being strong and endure hardship and suffering as a good soldier of Christ and willing to endure all things for the chosen, that they may obtain the salvation which is in Christ. Being a diligent worker, rightly dividing the word of truth, carefully following sound doctrine and continuing to live in it. Being watchful, endure affliction and do the work of an evangelist and beware of false teachers because false doctrine spreads and kills like cancer, undermining the work of faithful preachers, but most of all, fighting the good fight, keep the faith and finish the race in Christ looking forward to the crown of righteousness.}}
