Warning against False Teachers; the Grace Given Paul

Paul, an apostle of JesusChrist according to the commandment of God our Savior and the Lord Jesus Christ our hope;Christ Jesus and omitsthe Lord. +
to Timothy, my true child in faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. +

As I urged you when I was going into Macedonia, stay at Ephesus that you might command certain men not to teach a different doctrine, +
and not to pay attention to myths and endless genealogies, which cause disputes, rather than God's stewardship, which is in faith- +
but the goal of this command is love, out of a pure heart and a good conscience and sincere faith; +
from which things some, having missed the mark, have turned aside to vain talking; +
desiring to be teachers of the law, though they understand neither what they say, nor about what they strongly affirm. +
But we know that the law is good, if a person uses it lawfully, +
as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, +
for the sexually immoral, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and for any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine; +
according to the Good News of the glory of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. +
And I thank him who enabled me, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he counted me faithful, appointing me to service; +
although I was before a blasphemer, a persecutor, and insolent. However, I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. +
The grace of our Lord abounded exceedingly with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. +
The saying is faithful and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. +
However, for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first, Jesus Christ might display all his patience, for an example of those who were going to believe in him for eternal life. +
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. +
This instruction I commit to you, my child Timothy, according to the prophecies which were given to you before, that by them you may wage the good warfare; +
holding faith and a good conscience; which some having thrust away made a shipwreck concerning the faith; +
of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I delivered to Satan, that they might be taught not to blaspheme. +
