I. Timothy

1st Tim.  1:8-9 “But we know that the law is good,  if a man use it
lawfully;  knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous
man, but for the lawless and disobedient”

1st  Tim.  1:20 “of whom is Hymene’us and Alwxander;  whom I have
delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.”

1st  Tim.   2:1-3  “I  exhort  therefore,  that,  first  of  all,
supplications,  prayers,  intercessions, and giving of thanks, be
made for all men;  for kings,  and for all that are in authority;
that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness  and
honesty.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our

1st Tim.  2:5 “For there is one God, and one mediator between God
and men, the man Christ Jesus;”

1st Tim. 2:9-15 “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves
in  modest apparel,  with shamefacedness and sobriety;  not  with
braided hair,  or gold,  or pearls,  or costly array;  but (which
becometh  women professing godliness with good works.   Let  the
women  learn in silence with all subjection.   But I suffer not a
woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in
silence.   For Adam was first formed, them Eve.  And Adam was not
deceived,  but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
Not  withstanding  she shall be saved in  childbearing,  if  they
continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”
(Paul’s place for a  woman)

1st Tim.  3:2-3 “A bishop then must be blameless,  the husband of
one  wife,   vigilant,   sober,   of  good  behavior,   given  to
hospitality,  apt to teach;  not given to wine,  no striker,  not
greedy  of  filthy  lucre;   but  patient,  not  a  brawler,  not
(Polygamy all right)
1st Tim.  3:8 “Likewise must be the deacons be grave, not double-
tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;”
(Double-tongued people in Paul’s time)

1st Tim.  4:4 “For every creature of God is good,  and nothing to
be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:”
(Teaching against the law)

1st Tim.  4:14 “Neglect not the gift that is in thee,  which  was
given  thee by prophecy,  with the laying on of the hands of  the
(What is a presbytery?)

1st  Tim.  5:5-6 “Now she that is a widow indeed,  and  desolate,
trusteth  in  God,  and continueth in supplications  and  prayers
night and day.  But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she

1st Tim.  5:8 “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.”
(the work ethic?)

1st  Tim.  5:9  “Let not a widow be taken into the  number  under
threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,”
(Widows cared for by the church?)

1st  Tim.  5:16 “If any man or woman that believeth have  widows,
let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it
may relieve them that are widows indeed.”
(Church to care for widows)

1st Tim.  5:23 “Drink no longer water,  but use a little wine for
thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.”
(Montezuma’s revenge on travelers)

1st Tim.  6:1-2 “Let as many servants as are under the yoke count
their own masters worthy of all honor,  that the name of God  and
his  doctrine  be not blasphemed.   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.”
(Be good employers)

1st Tim.  6:7-11 “For we brought nothing into this world,  and it
is  certain  we  can carry nothing  out.   And  having  food  and
raiment, let us be therewith content.  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.  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.   But thou,  O man of God,
flee  these things;  and follow after  righteousness,  godliness,
faith, love, patience, meekness.”

1st Tim.  6:17-19  “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;  that
they  do  good,  that  they  be rich  in  good  works,  ready  to
distribute,  willing  to  communicate;  laying up  in  store  for
themselves a good foundation against the time to come,  that they
may lay hold on eternal life.”
