DAY 242 1 Timothy 1-2, Psalm 117

1 TIMOTHY
1:1
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;
1:2
Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
1:3
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,
1:4
Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
1:5
Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
1:6
From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
1:7
Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
1:8
But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
1:9
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,
1:10
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;
1:11
According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
1:12
And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
1:13
Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
1:14
And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
1:15
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.
1:16
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.
1:17
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1:18
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;
1:19
Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
1:20
Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
2:1
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2:2
For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
2:3
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
2:4
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
2:6
Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
2:7
Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
2:8
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.
2:9
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;
2:10
But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
2:11
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
2:12
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
2:13
For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
2:14
And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
2:15
Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.

PSALMS
117:1
O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
117:2
For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.
