Paul, an apostle of YHWH haMashiach by the commandment of יהוה (YHWH) our Saviour, and our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach, who is our hope;
2 Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith. Grace, mercy, and peace, from יהוה (YHWH) our Father and YHWH haMashiach our Lord (Adonai).
3 As I besought you to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that you mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,
4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith; so do.
5 Now the goal of the commandment is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned;
6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
8 But we know that the law is good, if a man uses it lawfully;
9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
11 According to the glorious gospel (good news) of the blessed God (Elohim), who was committed to my trust.
12 And I thank the Messiah (haMashiach) YHWH our Lord (Adonai), who hath enabled me, for that He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious; but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
14 And the grace of our Lord (Adonai) was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in the Messiah (haMashiach) YHWH.
15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that the Messiah (haMashiach) YHWH came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first YHWH haMashiach might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them who should hereafter believe on Him to life everlasting.
17 Now unto the King – eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God (Elohim), be honour and glory for ever and ever. So be it (Amen).
18 This charge I commit unto you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on you, that you by them mightest war a good warfare;
19 Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck;
20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) our Saviour;
4 Who will for all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 For God (Elohim) is one, and one mediator between God (Elohim) and men, the man YHWH haMashiach;
6 Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, I speak the truth in Messiah (Mashiach), and lie not; a teacher of the Gentiles (Goyim) in faith and verity.
8 I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
10 But which becometh women professing godliness with good works.
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I permit not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve (Chawah).
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and love and holiness with sobriety.
This is a true saying, “If a man desires the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.”
2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
5 For if a man knows not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the assembly of God (Elohim)?
6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he falls into the condemnation of the devil.
7 Moreover he must have a good report of them who are outsiders; lest he falls into reproach and the snare of the devil.
8 Likewise must the deacons be of good character, not doubletongued, 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 use the office of a deacon, being found blameless.
11 Even so must their wives be good character, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
13 For they that have used the office of a deacon well purchase to themselves a good degree, and great boldness in the faith which is in YHWH haMashiach.
14 These things write I unto you, hoping to come unto you shortly;
15 But if I tarry long, that you mayest know how you oughtest to behave yourself in the house of יהוה (YHWH), which is the assembly of the living God (Elohim), the pillar and ground of the truth.
16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles (Goyim), believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God (Elohim) hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them who believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God (Elohim) is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving;
5 For it is sanctified by the word of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) and prayer.
6 If you put the brethren in remembrance of these things, you shalt be a good minister of YHWH haMashiach, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto you have attained.
7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself rather unto godliness.
8 For bodily exercise profiteth little; but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God (Elohim), who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
11 These things command and teach.
12 Let no man despise your youth; but be you an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.
14 Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.
15 Meditate upon these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your profiting may appear to all.
16 Take heed unto yourself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them; for in doing this you shalt both save yourself, and them that hear you.
Rebuke not an older man, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
2 The older women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
3 Honour widows that are widows indeed.
4 But if any widow has children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents; for that is good and acceptable before God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).
5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in יהוה (YHWH), and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.
6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.
7 And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.
8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
9 Let a widow above threescore (sixty) years old be taken into the number, having been the wife of one man,
10 Well reported of for good works; if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the holy ones’ feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every good work.
11 But refuse the younger widows; for when they have begun to wax wanton against the Messiah (haMashiach), they will marry;
12 Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
13 And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.
16 If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the assembly be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.
17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
18 For the scripture saith, “You shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn.” And, “The labourer is worthy of his reward.” – Deu. 25:4
19 Receive not an accusation against an elder, but before two or three witnesses. – Deu. 17:6; 19:15
20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
21 I charge you before God (Elohim), YHWH haMashiach, and the elect angels, that you observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
22 Do not hurry to lay hands on man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins; keep yourself pure.
23 Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your often infirmities.
24 Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some men they follow after.
25 Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.
Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of יהוה (YHWH) and His doctrine be not blasphemed.
2 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.
3 If any man teaches otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness; from such withdraw yourself.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 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.
11 But you, O man of God (Elohim), flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto you are also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
13 I give you charge in the sight of God (Elohim), who quickeneth all things, and before YHWH haMashiach, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;
14 That you keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord (Adonai) YHWH haMashiach;
15 Which in His times He shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords (Supreme Lord);
16 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. So be it (Amen).
17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God (Elohim), who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to
your trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called;
21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with you. So be it (Amen).
