Youngs Literal Translation
||Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;
||Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to a command of God our Saviour, and of the Lord Jesus Christ our hope,
||Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
||to Timotheus -- genuine child in faith: Grace, kindness, peace, from God our Father, and Christ Jesus our Lord,
||As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,
||according as I did exhort thee to remain in Ephesus -- I going on to Macedonia -- that thou mightest charge certain not to teach any other thing,
||Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
||nor to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, that cause questions rather than the building up of God that is in faith: --
||Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
||And the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned,
||From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
||from which certain, having swerved, did turn aside to vain discourse,
||Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
||willing to be teachers of law, not understanding either the things they say, nor concerning what they asseverate,
||But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
||and we have known that the law `is' good, if any one may use it lawfully;
||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,
||having known this, that for a righteous man law is not set, but for lawless and insubordinate persons, ungodly and sinners, impious and profane, parricides and matricides, men-slayers,
||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;
||whoremongers, sodomites, men-stealers, liars, perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that to sound doctrine is adverse,
||According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
||according to the good news of the glory of the blessed God, with which I was entrusted.
||And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
||And I give thanks to him who enabled me -- Christ Jesus our Lord -- that he did reckon me stedfast, having put `me' to the ministration,
||Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
||who before was speaking evil, and persecuting, and insulting, but I found kindness, because, being ignorant, I did `it' in unbelief,
||And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
||and exceedingly abound did the grace of our Lord, with faith and love that `is' in Christ Jesus:
||This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
||stedfast `is' the word, and of all acceptation worthy, that Christ Jesus came to the world to save sinners -- first of whom I am;
||Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
||but because of this I found kindness, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all long-suffering, for a pattern of those about to believe on him to life age-during:
||Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
||and to the King of the ages, the incorruptible, invisible, only wise God, `is' honour and glory -- to the ages of the ages! Amen.
||This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare;
||This charge I commit to thee, child Timotheus, according to the prophesies that went before upon thee, that thou mayest war in them the good warfare,
||Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
||having faith and a good conscience, which certain having thrust away, concerning the faith did make shipwreck,
||Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
||of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I did deliver to the Adversary, that they might be instructed not to speak evil.
