King James Version (1769) with Strongs Numbers and Morphology: I Timothy Chapter 1
 [1] Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;
 [2] Unto Timothy, my own son in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord.
 [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,
 [4] Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
 [5] Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
 [6] From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
 [7] Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
 [8] But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
 [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,
 [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;
 [11] According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
 [12] And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
 [13] Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
 [14] And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
 [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.
 [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.
 [17] Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
 [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;
 [19] Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
 [20] Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
