The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
A.D. 1749-1752





THE FIRST EPISTLE OF ST. PAUL TO TIMOTHY

St. Paul write this Epistle to his BELOVED TIMOTHY, being then bishop of
Ephesus, to instruct him in the duties of a bishop, both in respect to
himself and to his charge; and that he ought to be well informed of the
good morals of those on whom he was to impose hands: Impose not hands
lightly upon any man. He tells him also how he should behave towards his
clergy. The Epistle was written about 33 years after our Lord's
Ascension; but where it was written is uncertain: the more general
opinion is, that it was in Macedonia.


1 Timothy Chapter 1

He puts Timothy in mind of his charge and blesses God for the mercy he
himself had received.

1:1. Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the commandment of
God our Saviour and Christ Jesus our hope:

1:2. To Timothy, his beloved son in faith. Grace, mercy and peace, from
God the Father and from Christ Jesus our Lord.

1:3. As I desired thee to remain at Ephesus when I went into Macedonia,
that thou mightest charge some not to teach otherwise:

1:4. Not to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which furnish
questions rather than the edification of God which is in faith.

1:5. Now the end of the commandment is charity from a pure heart, and a
good conscience, and an unfeigned faith.

1:6. From which things some, going astray, are turned aside unto vain
babbling:

1:7. Desiring to be teachers of the law: understanding neither the
things they say, nor whereof they affirm.

1:8. But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully.

1:9. Knowing this: That the law is not made for the just man but for the
unjust and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the wicked
and defiled, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for
manslayers,

The law is not... He means, that the just man doth good, and avoideth
evil, not as compelled by the law, and merely for fear of the punishment
appointed for transgressors; but voluntarily, and out of the love of God
and virtue; and would do so, though there were no law.

1:10. For fornicators, for them who defile themselves with mankind, for
menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and whatever other thing
is contrary to sound doctrine:

1:11. Which is according to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God
which hath been committed to my trust.

1:12. I give him thanks who hath strengthened me, even to Christ Jesus
our Lord, for that he hath counted me faithful, putting me in the
ministry:

1:13. Who before was a blasphemer and a persecutor and contumelious. But
I obtained the mercy of God, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

1:14. Now the grace of our Lord hath abounded exceedingly with faith and
love, which is in Christ Jesus.

1:15. A faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the chief.

1:16. But for this cause have I obtained mercy: that in me first Christ
Jesus might shew forth all patience, for the information of them that
shall believe in him unto life everlasting.
