1 Timothy 1:3-11 - Instructions For Timothy In Ephesus

3 As I exhorted thee when I was going into Macedonia, abide at Ephesus; that thou mayest charge some to teach no other doctrine, Neither to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, 4 that afford questions, and not godly edifying, which is through faith. 5 Whereas the end of the commandment is love, out of a pure heart and a good conscience, and faith unfeigned, 6 From which some, having missed the mark, are turned aside to vain jangling: 7 Desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither the things they say, nor those concerning which they confidently affirm. 8 We know, the law is good, if a man use it lawfully, 9 Knowing this, that the law doth not lie against a righteous man; but against the lawless and disobedient, against the ungodly and sinners, the unholy and prophane, against killers of their fathers or their mothers, against murderers, 10 Against whoremongers, sodomites, man-stealers, liars, perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to wholesome doctrine, 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I am instructed.
