Timotiyos 1: 1

1 Timothy 1

1  Sha'ul, an emissary of יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ, according to a command of Elohim our Saviour, and of the Master יהושע ha'Mashiah, our expectation,

2  to Timotheos, a genuine child in the belief: Favour, compassion, peace from יהוה our Father and יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ our Master.

3  As I appealed to you when I went into Makedonia, to remain in Ephesos, in order to command some not to teach differently,

4  nor to pay attention to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than an administration of Elohim which is in belief.

5  Now the goal of this command is love from a clean heart, from a good conscience and a sincere belief,

6  which some, having missed, turned aside to senseless talk,

7  wanting to be teachers of Torah, understanding neither what they say nor concerning what they strongly affirm.

8  And we know that the Torah is good if one uses it legitimately,

9  knowing this: that Torah is not laid down for a righteous being, but for the lawless and unruly, for the wicked and for sinners, for the wrong-doers and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,

10  for those who whore, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and for whatever else that is contrary to sound teaching,

11  according to the esteemed Good News of the baruḵ Elohim which was entrusted to me.

12  And I thank Mashiaḥ יהושע our Master who empowered me, because He counted me trustworthy, putting me into service,

13  me, although I was formerly a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and an insulter. But compassion was shown me because being ignorant I did it in unbelief.

14  And the favour of our Master was exceedingly increased, with belief and love which are in Mashiaḥ יהושע.

15  Trustworthy is the word and worthy of all acceptance, that Mashiaḥ יהושע came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am foremost.

16  But because of this I received compassion, so that in me first, יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ might display all patience, as an example to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting ḥai.

17  Now to the Sovereign of the ages, incorruptible, invisible, to Elohim who alone is wise, be respect and esteem forever and ever. Amĕn.

18  This charge I entrust to you, son Timotheos, according to the neḇuoth previously made concerning you, that by them you might wage the good campaign,

19  having belief and a good conscience, which some have thrust aside and suffered shipwreck concerning their belief.

20  Among these are Humenaios and Alexandros, whom I delivered to Satan, in order to be taught not to blaspheme.
