1 As many as are under a yoke slaves, the own masters of all honor worthy let them esteem, that not the name of the God and the teaching may be reviled.
2 Those and believing having masters, not let them disregard, because brethren they are; but rather let them serve, because believing ones they are and beloved ones who of the welldoing are recipients. These thing do thou teach, and do thou exhort.
3 If any one teach differently, and not assents to being sound in words in those of the Lord of us Jesus Anointed, and so that according to piety teaching;
4 he is puffed up, nothing being versed in, but being sick about questions and strifes of words, out of which arises envy, strife, evilspeakings, suspicions wicked,
5 wrangling having been corrupted of men the mind, and having been devoid of the truth, supposing gain to be the piety. withdraw thyself from of the such ones.
6 It is but gain great the piety with a competency.
7 Nothing for we brought into the world; evident, that neither to carry out any thing are we able.
8 Having and foods and coverings, with these things we shall be satisfied.
9 Those but wishing to be rich, fall into a temptation and a snare, and desires many foolish and hurtful, which sink deep the men into destruction and ruin.
10 A root for of all of the evils is the love of money; which some longing after wandered from the faith, and themselves pierced around with sorrows many.
11 Thou but, O man of the God, these things flee; pursue thou and righteousness, piety, faith, love, patience, meekness;
12 contest thou the good contest of the faith, do thou lay hold of the agelasting life, for which thou wast called out, and thou didst confess the good confession in presence of many witnesses.
13 I charge thee in presence of the God, of that making alive the things all, and Anointed Jesus, of that one testifying before Pontius Pilate the good confession,
14 to keep thee the commandment spotless, blameless, till the appearance of the Lord of us Jesus Anointed,
15 which in seasons own he will show the blessed and only Potentate, the King of those being kings and Lord of those being lords,
16 the only one having deathlessness, light dwelling in inaccessible, whom saw no one of men, nor to see is able; to whom honor and might agelasting; so be it.
17 To those rich ones in the present age do thou charge not to be highmined, nor to have confidence in wealth uncertain, but in the God the living, in that offering to us all things richly for enjoyment;
18 to work good, to be rich in works good, liberal ones to be, communicative ones,
19 treasuring up for themselves a foundation good for the future, so that they may lay hold of that really life.
20 O Timothy, the trust guard thou, avoiding the profane empty sounds and oppositions of the falselynamed knowledge; which some having professed, concerning the faith missed the mark. The favor with thee.
