Instructions to Those Who Minister

1 All R213 who are under the yoke as slaves are to regard their own masters as worthy of all honor so that R214 the name of God and our doctrine will not be spoken F52 against. 2 Those who have believers as their masters must not be disrespectful to them because they are brethren, R215 but must serve them all the more, because those who partake F53 of the benefit are believers and beloved. Teach R216 and preach F54 these principles.

3 If anyone advocates R217 a different doctrine and does not agree F55 with sound R218 words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming R219 to godliness, 4 he is conceited R220 and understands nothing; but he has F56 a morbid interest in controversial R221 questions and disputes R222 about words, out of which arise envy, strife, abusive language, evil suspicions, 5 and constant friction between men R223 of depraved mind and deprived of the truth, who suppose R224 that godliness F57 is a means of gain. 6 But R225 godliness actually is a means of great R226 gain when accompanied by contentment. R227 7 For we R228 have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either. 8 If we have R229 food and covering, with these we shall be content. 9 But R230 those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a R231 snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. 10 For the R232 love of money is a root of all sorts F58 of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered R233 away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

11 But flee R234 from these things, you man R235 of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, R236 love, R237 perseverance F59 and gentleness. 12 Fight R238 the good fight of faith; R239 take R240 hold of the eternal life to R241 which you were called, and you made the good confession R242 in the presence of many R243 witnesses. 13 I R244 charge you in the presence of God, who gives F60 life to all things, and of Christ R245 Jesus, who testified the good R246 confession before R247 Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing R248 of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which He will bring F61 about at the R249 proper time--He who is the R250 blessed and only R251 Sovereign, the R252 King of kings F62 and Lord R253 of lords, F63 16 who R254 alone possesses immortality and dwells R255 in unapproachable light, whom R256 no man has seen or can see. To R254 Him be honor and eternal dominion! Amen.

17 Instruct those who are rich in this R257 present world not R258 to be conceited or to fix R259 their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who R260 richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. 18 Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good R261 works, F64 to R262 be generous and ready to share, 19 storing R263 up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take R264 hold of that which is life indeed.

20 O Timothy, R265 guard what R266 has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly R267 and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called "knowledge"-- 21 which some have professed and thus gone R268 astray from F65 the R269 faith.

Grace R270 be with you.
