1 Timothy 6:3-19

1A. (3) If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ,

1B. and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

1C. (4) He is proud, knowing nothing,

1D. but doting about questions and strifes of words,

1E. whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,

1D’.(5) Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds,

1C’. and destitute of the truth,

1B’. supposing that gain is godliness:

1A’/2A. from such withdraw thyself.

2B.(6) But godliness with contentment is great gain.

2C. (7) For we brought nothing into this world,
and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

2B’.(8) And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

2A’/3A. (9) But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

3B. (10) For the love of money is the root of all evil:

3A’. which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

4A.(11)  But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

4B.(12) Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

4B’. (13) I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

4A’./5A(14) That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

5B. (15) Which in his times he shall shew,

5C. who is the blessed and only Potentate,
the King of kings,
and Lord of lords;
Who only hath immortality,

5B’. (16) dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto;
whom no man hath seen, nor can see:

5A’. to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

6A. (17) Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded nor trust in uncertain riches

6B. but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;

6C.(18) That they do good,
that they be rich in good works,

6B’. ready to distribute,
willing to communicate;

6A’. (19) Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

1 Timothy 1:1-20

(1) Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;

A  (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 (5-6) Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 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.

B. (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;

C (11) According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

D (12a) And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord,

C’ (12b) who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;

B’ (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.

A’ i (18) This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothyaccording 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.

1 Timothy 3:1-13

A (1) This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.

B (2) A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
(3) Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; (4) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;(5) For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?

C (6) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.

D (7a) Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without;

C’ (7b) lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

B’ (8) Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; (9) Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience. (10) And let these also first be proved; then let them use the office of a deacon, being found blameless. (11) Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. (12) Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

A’ (13) For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 Timothy 2:1-8

A. (1-3) I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

B. (4) Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

C. (5) For there is one God,

D. and one mediator between God and men,

C’. the man Christ Jesus;

B’. (6-7) Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

A’. (8) I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

1Timothy 2:9-15

A. (9-10) In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.

B.(11)  Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

C.(12)  But I suffer not a woman to teach,
nor to usurp authority over the man,

B’. but to be in silence.

A. (13-15) For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.
