1 Paul, an apostle of the Messiah Yahshua according to the commandment of Yahweh our Savior, and the Messiah Yahshua our hope; 2 to Timothy, my true child in faith: Grace, mercy, peace, from Yahweh the Father and the Messiah Yahshua our Master.
3 As I exhorted you to stay at Ephesus, when I was going into Macedonia, that you might charge certain men not to teach a different doctrine, 4 neither to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questionings, rather than a dispensation of Yahweh which is in faith; so do I now. 5 But the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart and a good conscience and faith unfeigned: 6 from which things some having swerved have turned aside to vain talking; 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, though they understand neither what they say, nor of what they confidently affirm. 8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully, 9 as knowing this, that the law is not made for the righteous man, but for the lawless and unruly, for the wicked and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for abusers of themselves with men, for men-stealers, for liars, for false swearers, and if there be any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine; 11 according to the good tidings of the glory of the blessed Elohim, which was committed to my trust,
12 I thank him that enabled me, even Yahshua the Messiah our Savior, for that he counted me faithful, appointing me to his service; 13 though I was before a blasphemer, and a persecuter, and injurious: however, I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief; 14 and the grace of our Master abounded greatly with faith and love which is in the Messiah Yahshua. 15 Faithful is the saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that the Messiah Yahshua came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief: 16 however, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me as chief might Yahshua the Messiah show forth all his long-suffering, for an example of them that should thereafter believe on him unto eternal life. 17 Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only Elohim, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
18 This charge I commit to you, Timothy my child, according to the prophecies which led the way to you, that by them you may war the good warfare; 19 holding faith and a good conscience; which some of them have thrust from them made shipwreck concerning the faith: 20 of whom is Hymeneus and Alexander; whom I delivered to Satan, that they might be taught not to blaspheme.
I exhort therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, be made for all men; 2 for kings and all that are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all holiness and gravity. 3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of Yahweh our Savior; 4 who would have all men to be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one El, one mediator also between Yahweh and men, himself man, the Messiah Yahshua, 6 who gave himself a ransom for all; the testimony to be borne in its own times; 7 for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I speak the truth, and lie not), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire therefore that the men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and disputing. 9 In like manner, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefastness and sobriety; not with hair braided with gold, or pearls or costly raiment; 10 but (which becomes women professing holiness) through good works. 11 Let a woman learn in quietness with all subjection. 12 But I do not permit a woman to teach, nor to have dominion over a man, but to be in quietness. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not beguiled, but the woman being beguiled has fallen into transgression: 15 but she shall be saved through her childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and sanctification with sobriety.
Faithful is the saying, If a man seeks the office of a bishop, he desires a good work. 2 The bishop therefore must be without reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, orderly, given to hospitality, apt to teach; 3 no brawler, no pugilist; but gentle, not contentious, no lover of money; 4 one that rules well his own house, having children in subjection with all gravity; 5 (but if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the assembly of Yahweh?) 6 not a novice, lest being puffed up he fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover he must have good testimony from them that are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. 8 Deacons in like manner must be grave, not double-tongued, 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 serve as deacons, if they be blameless. 11 Women in like manner must be grave, not slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things. 12 Let deacons be husbands of one wife, ruling children and their own houses well. 13 For they that have served well as deacons gain to themselves a good standing, and great boldness in the faith which is in the Messiah Yahshua.
14 These things I write to you, hoping to come to you shortly; 15 but if I stay long, that you may know how men ought to behave themselves in the house of Yahweh, which is the assembly of the living Elohim, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of holiness;
Elohim who was manifested in the flesh,
Justified in the spirit, seen of angels,
Preached among the nations, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
