1 Timothy 4
1 Timothy 4:1
But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons,
1 Timothy 4:2
through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron;
1 Timothy 4:3
forbidding to marry, [and commanding] to abstain from meats, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by them that believe and know the truth.
1 Timothy 4:4
For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it be received with thanksgiving:
1 Timothy 4:5
for it is sanctified through the word of God and prayer.
1 Timothy 4:6
If thou put the brethren in mind of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished in the words of the faith, and of the good doctrine which thou hast followed [until now]:
1 Timothy 4:7
but refuse profane and old wives’ fables. And exercise thyself unto godliness:
1 Timothy 4:8
for bodily exercise is profitable for a little; but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life which now is, and of that which is to come.
1 Timothy 4:9
Faithful is the saying, and worthy of all acceptation.
1 Timothy 4:10
For to this end we labor and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of them that believe.
1 Timothy 4:11
These things command and teach.
1 Timothy 4:12
Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an ensample to them that believe, in word, in manner of life, in love, in faith, in purity.
1 Timothy 4:13
Till I come, give heed to reading, to exhortation, to teaching.
1 Timothy 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 presbytery.
1 Timothy 4:15
Be diligent in these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy progress may be manifest unto all.
1 Timothy 4:16
Take heed to thyself, and to thy teaching. Continue in these things; for in doing this thou shalt save both thyself and them that hear thee.
