1Ti 6:1As many as are slaves under the yoke should regard their own masters as worthy of all honor, lest the name of God and our teaching be blasphemed.

1Ti 6:2And those who have believing masters should not despise them, because they are brothers; but rather they should serve them, because those who recompense them for the kindly service received are believers and beloved. These things teach and exhort.

1Ti 6:3If anyone teaches different things and does not consent to healthy words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the teaching which is according to godliness,

1Ti 6:4He is blinded with pride, understanding nothing, but is diseased with questionings and contentions of words, out of which come envy, strife, slanders, evil suspicions,

1Ti 6:5Perpetual wranglings of men corrupted in mind and deprived of the truth, supposing godliness to be a means of gain.

1Ti 6:6But godliness with contentment is great gain;

1Ti 6:7For we have brought nothing into the world, because neither can we carry anything out.

1Ti 6:8But having food and covering, with these we will be content.

1Ti 6:9But those who intend to be rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires, which plunge men into destruction and ruin.

1Ti 6:10For the love of money is a root of all evils, because of which some, aspiring after money, have been led away from the faith and pierced themselves through with many pains.

1Ti 6:11But you, O man of God, flee these things, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, meekness.

1Ti 6:12Fight the good fight of the faith; lay hold on the eternal life, to which you were called and have confessed the good confession before many witnesses.

1Ti 6:13I charge you before God, who preserves all things in life, and Christ Jesus, who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate,

1Ti 6:14To keep the commandment spotless, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,

1Ti 6:15Which in its own times the blessed and only Sovereign will show, the King of those who reign as kings and Lord of those who rule as lords,

1Ti 6:16Who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen nor can see, to whom be honor and eternal might. Amen.

1Ti 6:17Charge those who are rich in the present age not to be high-minded, nor to set their hope on the uncertainty of riches but on God, who affords us all things richly for our enjoyment;

1Ti 6:18To do good, to be rich in good works, to be ready to distribute, to be ones willing to share;

1Ti 6:19Laying away for themselves a good foundation as a treasure for the future, that they may lay hold on that which is really life.

1Ti 6:20O Timothy, guard the deposit, turning away from profane, vain babblings and oppositions from what is falsely called knowledge,

1Ti 6:21Because of which some, professing this, have misaimed regarding the faith. Grace be with you.
