Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope
Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord
But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully
And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry
And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus
this is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation that, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
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
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men.
For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus
I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting
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.
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence
This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work
(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
For they that used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou ought to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth
And without controversy great is the mystery of Godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
