6:1 Whatever servants be under yoke, deem they their lords worthy all honour, lest the name of their Lord God and his doctrine be blasphemed. Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their masters worthy of all honour, that the name of god, and his doctrine be not evil spoken of. Let as many servants as are under the yoke, count their masters worthy of all honour, that the Name of God, and his doctrine be not evil spoken of. Let as many servants as are under the yoke, count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the Name of God, and his doctrine be not blasphemed.
6:2 Forsooth, they that have faithful lords, despise them not, for they be brethren; but more serve they them, for they be faithful and loved, the which be partners of beneficence. These things teach thou, and these things admonish thou. See that they which have believing masters despise them not because they are brethren: but so much the rather do service, forasmuch as they are believing and beloved and partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort. And they which have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren, but rather do service, because they are faithful, and beloved, and partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are brethren: but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit: These things teach and exhort.
6:3 If any man teach otherwise, and accordeth not to the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the teaching that is after piety, If any man teach otherwise, and is not content with the wholesome words of the lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine of godliness, If any man teach otherwise, and consenteth not to the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus Christ, & to the doctrine, which is according to godliness, If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness:
6:4 he is proud, nothing knowing, but languishing about questions and fightings of words, of the which be brought forth envies, strives, blasphemies, evil suspicions, he is puffed up and knoweth nothing: but wasteth his brains about questions, and strife of words, whereof spring envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings He is puffed up and knoweth nothing, but doteth about questions and strife of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions, and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
6:5 fightings of men corrupt in soul, and that be deprived from truth, deeming winning to be piety. superfluous disputings in scowls of men with corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, which think that lucre is godliness. From such separate thyself. Vain disputations of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, which think that gain is godliness: from such separate thyself. Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: From such withdraw thyself.
6:6 But a great winning is piety, with sufficience. Godliness is great riches, if a man be content with that he hath. But godliness is great gain, if a man be content with that he hath. But godliness with contentment is great gain.
6:7 Forsooth we brought nothing into this world, no doubt, for we may not bear away any thing. For we brought nothing into the world, and it is a plain case that we can carry nothing out. For we brought nothing into the world, & it is certain, that we can carry nothing out. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
6:8 Forsooth having foods, and with what things we shall be clothed, with these things be we satisfied. When we have food and raiment, let us therewith be content. Therefore when we have food & raiment, let us therewith be content. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
6:9 For they that will be made rich, fall into temptation, and into the snare of the devil, and into many unprofitable desires and harmful, which drown men into death and perdition. They that will be rich, fall into temptation, and snares, and into many foolish and noisome lusts, which drown men in perdition, and destruction. For they that will be rich, fall into temptation and snares, and into many foolish & noisome lusts, which drown men in perdition and destruction. But they that will be rich, fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish & hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
6:10 For the root of all evils is covetousness, which some men coveting erred from the faith, and beset them with many sorrows. For covetousness is the root of all evil, which while some lusted after, they erred from the faith, and tangled themselves with many sorrows. For the desire of money is the root of all evil, which while some lusted after, they erred from the faith, & pierced themselves through with many sorrows. For the love of money is the root of all evil, which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
6:11 But, thou, man of God, flee these things; soothly follow thou rightwiseness, piety, faith, charity, patience, mildness. But thou which art the man of god, fly such things. Follow rightwiseness, godliness, love, patience, meekness. But thou, o man of God, flee these things, and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, & meekness. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
6:12 Strive thou a good strife of faith, catch everlasting life, into which thou art called, and hast acknowledged a good acknowledging before many witnesses. Fight a good fight of faith. Lay hand on eternal life, whereunto thou art called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. Fight the good fight of faith: lay hold of eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, & hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
6:13 I command to thee before God, that quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, that yielded a witnessing under Pilate of Pontii, a good confession, I give thee charge in the sight of God, which quickeneth all things, and before Jesus Christ, which under Poncius Pilate witnessed a good witnessing, I charge thee in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, & before Jesus Christ which under Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession, I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good Confession,
6:14 that thou keep the commandment without wem, irreprehensible, till into the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; that thou keep the commandment without spot, so that no man find fault with thee, until the appearing of our lord Jesus Christ, That thou keep this commandment without spot, and unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ.
6:15 whom the blessed and alone almighty king of kings and Lord of lords shall shew in his times. which appearing (when the time is come) he shall shew that is blessed and mighty only, king of kings, and lord of lords, Which in due time he shall shew, that is blessed and prince only, the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed, and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords:
6:16 The which alone hath immortality, and dwelleth in light, to which light no man may come; whom no man saw, neither may see; to whom glory, and honour, and empire into without end. Amen. which only hath immortality, and dwelleth in light that no man can obtain, whom never man saw, neither can see: unto whom be honour and rule everlasting Amen. Who only hath immortality, & dwelleth in the light that none can attain unto, whom never man saw, neither can see, unto whom be honour and power everlasting, Amen. Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light, which no man can approach unto, whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
6:17 Command thou to the rich of this world, that they understand not highly, nor to hope in uncertainty of riches, but in the living God, that giveth to us all things plenteously to use; Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not exceeding wise, and that they trust not in the uncertain riches, but in the living god, which giveth us abundantly all things to enjoy them, Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, and that they trust not in uncertain riches, but in the living God, (which giveth us abundantly all things to enjoy) Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy,
6:18 to do well, to be made rich in good works, lightly to give, to commune, and that they do good and be rich in good works, and ready to give, and to distribute, That they do good, & be rich in good works, & ready to distribute, and communicate, That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate,
6:19 to treasure to themselves a good foundament into time to come, that they catch everlasting life. laying up in store for themselves, a good foundation against the time to come, that they may obtain eternal life. Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may obtain eternal life. Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
6:20 Thou Timothy, keep the deposit, eschewing cursed novelties of voices, and opinions of false name of knowing; O Timothe save that which is given thee to keep, and avoid unghostly vanities of voices, and oppositions of science falsely so called, which science, O Timotheus, keep that which is committed unto thee, and avoid profane & vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called, O Timothie, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science, falsely so called:
6:21 the which some promising, fell down about the faith. The grace of God be with thee. Amen. while some professed, they have erred as concerning the faith. Grace be with thee Amen. Which while some profess, they have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee, Amen. Which some professing, have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.
