1:17. Now to the king of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be
honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

1:18. This precept, I commend to thee, O son Timothy: according to the
prophecies going before on thee, that thou war in them a good warfare,

1:19. Having faith and a good conscience, which some rejecting have made
shipwreck concerning the faith.

1:20. Of whom is Hymeneus and Alexander, whom I have delivered up to
Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

1 Timothy Chapter 2

Prayers are to be said for all men, because God wills the salvation of
all. Women are not to teach.

2:1. I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers,
intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all men:

2:2. For kings and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a
quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity.

2:3. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour,

2:4. Who will have all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of
the truth.

2:5. For there is one God: and one mediator of God and men, the man
Christ Jesus:

One mediator... Christ is the one and only mediator of redemption, who
gave himself, as the apostle writes in the following verse.

2:6. Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times,
a redemption for all.... He is also the only mediator, who stands in
need of no other to recommend his petitions to the Father. But this is

faithful upon earth, as of the saints and angels in heaven, for
obtaining mercy, grace, and salvation, through Jesus Christ. As St. Paul
himself often desired the help of the prayers of the faithful, without
any injury to the mediatorship of Jesus Christ.

2:7. Whereunto I am appointed a preacher and an apostle (I say the
truth, I lie not), a doctor of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

2:8. I will therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up pure
hands, without anger and contention.

2:9. In like manner, women also in decent apparel: adorning themselves
with modesty and sobriety, not with plaited hair, or gold, or pearls, or
costly attire:

2:10. But, as it becometh women professing godliness, with good works.

2:11. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

2:12. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to use authority over the
man: but to be in silence.

2:13. For Adam was first formed; then Eve.

2:14. And Adam was not seduced; but the woman, being seduced, was in the

2:15. Yet she shall be saved through child bearing; if she continue in
faith and love and sanctification with sobriety.

1 Timothy Chapter 3

What sort of men are to be admitted into the clergy. The church is the
pillar of truth.

3:1. A faithful saying: If a man desire the office of a bishop, he
desireth good work.

3:2. It behoveth therefore a bishop to be blameless, the husband of one
wife, sober, prudent, of good behaviour, chaste, given to hospitality, a
