Bible Version

1 Timothy chapter 5

1
Don't speak angrily to an older man. But talk to him like he was your father. Treat the younger men like brothers.
2
Treat the older women like mothers. And treat the younger women with respect like sisters.
3
Take care of widows who really need help.
4
But if a widow has children or grandchildren, the first thing they need to learn is this: to show their devotion to God by taking care of their own family. They will be repaying their parents, and this pleases God.
5
A widow who really needs help is one who has been left all alone. She trusts God to take care of her. She prays all the time, night and day, and asks God for help.
6
But the widow who uses her life to please herself is really dead while she is still living.
7
Tell the believers there to take care of their family so that no one can say they are doing wrong.
8
Everyone should take care of all their own people. Most important, they should take care of their own family. If they do not do that, then they do not accept what we believe. They are worse than someone who does not even believe in God.
9
To be added to your list of widows, a woman must be 60 years old or older. She must have been faithful to her husband.
10
She must be known for the good she has done: raising children, welcoming travelers into her home, serving the needs of God's people, helping those in trouble, and using her life to do all kinds of good.
11
But don't put younger widows on that list. When their strong physical needs pull them away from their commitment to Christ, they will want to marry again.
12
Then they will be guilty of not doing what they first promised to do.
13
Also, these younger widows begin to waste their time going from house to house. They also begin to gossip and try to run other people's lives. They say things they should not say.
14
So I want the younger widows to marry, have children, and take care of their homes. If they do this, our enemy will not have any reason to criticize them.
15
But some of the younger widows have already turned away to follow Satan.
16
If any woman who is a believer has widows in her family, she should take care of them herself. Then the church will not have that burden and will be able to care for the widows who have no one else to help them.
17
The elders who lead the church in a good way should receive double honor � in particular, those who do the work of counseling and teaching.
18
As the Scriptures say, "When a work animal is being used to separate grain, don't keep it from eating the grain." And the Scriptures also say, "A worker should be given his pay."
19
Don't listen to someone who accuses an elder. You should listen to them only if there are two or three others who can say what the elder did wrong.
20
Tell those who sin that they are wrong. Do this in front of the whole church so that the others will have a warning.
21
Before God and Jesus Christ and the chosen angels, I tell you to make these judgments without any prejudice. Treat every person the same.
22
Think carefully before you lay your hands on anyone to make him an elder. Don't share in the sins of others. Keep yourself pure.
23
Timothy, stop drinking only water, and drink a little wine. This will help your stomach, and you will not be sick so often.
24
The sins of some people are easy to see. Their sins show that they will be judged. But the sins of some others are seen only later.
25
It is the same with the good things people do. Some are easy to see. But even if they are not obvious now, none of them will stay hidden forever.

1 Timothy chapter 6

1
All those who are slaves should show full respect to their masters. Then God's name and our teaching will not be criticized.
2
Some slaves have masters who are believers, so they are brothers. Does this mean they should show their masters any less respect? No, they should serve them even better, because they are helping believers, people they should love. This is what you must teach and tell everyone to do.
3
Some people will teach what is false and will not agree with the true teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ. They will not accept the teaching that produces a life of devotion to God.
4
They are proud of what they know, but they understand nothing. They are sick with a love for arguing and fighting about words. And that brings jealousy, quarrels, insults, and evil mistrust.
5
They are always making trouble, because they are people whose thinking has been confused. They have lost their understanding of the truth. They think that devotion to God is a way to get rich.
6
Devotion to God is, in fact, a way for people to be very rich, but only if it makes them satisfied with what they have.
7
When we came into the world, we brought nothing. And when we die, we can take nothing out.
8
So, if we have food and clothes, we will be satisfied with that.
9
People who want to be rich bring temptations to themselves. They are caught in a trap. They begin to want many foolish things that will hurt them. These things ruin and destroy people.
10
The love of money causes all kinds of evil. Some people have turned away from what we believe because they want to get more and more money. But they have caused themselves a lot of pain and sorrow.
11
But you belong to God. So you should stay away from all those things. Always try to do what is right, to be devoted to God, and to have faith, love, patience, and gentleness.
12
We have to fight to keep our faith. Try as hard as you can to win that fight. Take hold of eternal life. It is the life you were chosen to have when you confessed your faith in Jesus�that wonderful truth that you spoke so openly and that so many people heard.
13
Before God and Christ Jesus I give you a command. Jesus is the one who confessed that same wonderful truth when he stood before Pontius Pilate. And God is the one who gives life to everything. Now I tell you:
14
Do what you were commanded to do without fault or blame until the time when our Lord Jesus Christ comes again.
15
God will make that happen at the right time. God is the blessed and only Ruler. He is the King of all kings and the Lord of all lords.
16
God is the only one who never dies. He lives in light so bright that people cannot go near it. No one has ever seen him; no one is able to see him. All honor and power belong to him forever. Amen.
17
Give this command to those who are rich with the things of this world. Tell them not to be proud. Tell them to hope in God, not their money. Money cannot be trusted, but God takes care of us richly. He gives us everything to enjoy.
18
Tell those who are rich to do good�to be rich in good works. And tell them they should be happy to give and ready to share.
19
By doing this, they will be saving up a treasure for themselves. And that treasure will be a strong foundation on which their future life will be built. They will be able to have the life that is true life.
20
Timothy, God has trusted you with many things. Keep these things safe. Stay away from people who talk about useless things that are not from God and who argue against you with a "knowledge" that is not knowledge at all.
21
Some people who claim to have that "knowledge" have gone completely away from what we believe. God's grace be with you all.

Titus chapter 1

1
Greetings from Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. I was sent to help God's chosen people have faith and understand the truth that produces a life of devotion to God.
2
This faith and knowledge make us sure that we have eternal life. God promised that life to us before time began�and God does not lie.
3
At the right time, God let the world know about that life. He did this through the telling of the Good News message, and he trusted me with that work. I told people that message because God our Savior commanded me to.
4
To Titus, a true son to me in the faith we share together. Grace and peace to you from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.
5
I left you in Crete so that you could finish doing what still needed to be done. And I also left you there so that you could choose men to be elders in every town.
6
To be an elder, a man must not be guilty of living in a wrong way. He must be faithful to his wife, and his children must be faithful to God. They must not be known as children who are wild and don't obey.
7
An elder has the job of taking care of God's work. So people should not be able to say that he lives in a wrong way. He must not be someone who is proud and selfish or who gets angry quickly. He must not drink too much, and he must not be someone who likes to fight. He must not be a man who will do almost anything for money.
8
An elder must be ready to help people by welcoming them into his home. He must love what is good. He must be wise. He must live right. He must be devoted to God and pleasing to him. And he must be able to control himself.
9
An elder must be faithful to the same true message we teach. Then he will be able to encourage others with teaching that is true and right. And he will be able to show those who are against this teaching that they are wrong.
10
This is important, because there are many people who refuse to obey�people who talk about worthless things and mislead others. I am talking especially about those who say that men who are not Jews must be circumcised to please God.
11
These people must be stopped, because they are destroying whole families by teaching what they should not teach. They teach only to cheat people and make money.
12
Even one of their own prophets said, "Cretans are always liars. They are evil animals and lazy people who do nothing but eat."
13
The words that prophet said are true. So tell those people that they are wrong. You must be strict with them. Then they will become strong in the faith,
14
and they will stop paying attention to the stories told by those Jews. They will stop following the commands of those who have turned away from the truth.
15
To people who are pure, everything is pure. But to those who are full of sin and don't believe, nothing is pure. Really, their thinking has become evil and their consciences have been ruined.
16
They say they know God, but the evil things they do show that they don't accept him. They are disgusting. They refuse to obey God and are not capable of doing anything good.

Titus chapter 2

1
You, however, must tell everyone how to live in a way that agrees with the true teaching.
2
Teach the older men to have self-control, to be serious, and to be wise. They must be strong in faith, in love, and in patience.
3
Also, teach the older women to live the way those who serve the Lord should live. They should not go around saying bad things about others or be in the habit of drinking too much. They should teach what is good.
4
By doing this they will teach the younger women to love their husbands and children.
5
They will teach them to be wise and pure, to take care of their homes, to be kind, and to be willing to serve their husbands. Then no one will be able to criticize the teaching God gave us.
6
In the same way, tell the young men to be wise.
7
You should be an example for them in every way by the good things you do. When you teach, be honest and serious.
8
And your teaching should be clearly right so that you cannot be criticized. Then anyone who is against you will be ashamed. There will not be anything bad they can say about us.
9
And tell this to those who are slaves: They should be willing to serve their masters at all times; they should try to please them, not argue with them;
10
they should not steal from them; and they should show their masters that they can be trusted. Then, in everything they do, they will show that the teaching of God our Savior is good.
11
That is the way we should live, because God's grace has come. That grace can save everyone.
12
It teaches us not to live against God and not to do the bad things the world wants to do. It teaches us to live on earth now in a wise and right way�a way that shows true devotion to God.
13
We should live like that while we are waiting for the coming of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. He is our great hope, and he will come with glory.
14
He gave himself for us. He died to free us from all evil. He died to make us pure�people who belong only to him and who always want to do good.
15
These are the things you should tell people. Encourage them, and when they are wrong, correct them. You have full authority to do this, so don't let anyone think they can ignore you.

Titus chapter 3

1
Remind your people that they should always be under the authority of rulers and government leaders. They should obey these leaders and be ready to do good.
2
Tell them not to speak evil of anyone but to live in peace with others. They should be gentle and polite to everyone.
3
In the past we were foolish too. We did not obey, we were wrong, and we were slaves to the many things our bodies wanted and enjoyed. We lived doing evil and being jealous. People hated us and we hated each other.
4
But then the kindness and love of God our Savior was made known.
5
He saved us because of his mercy, not because of any good things we did. He saved us through the washing that made us new people. He saved us by making us new through the Holy Spirit.
6
God poured out to us that Holy Spirit fully through Jesus Christ our Savior.
7
We were made right with God by his grace. God saved us so that we could be his children and look forward to receiving life that never ends.
8
This is a true statement. And I want you to be sure that the people understand these things. Then those who believe in God will be careful to use their lives for doing good. These things are good and will help everyone.
9
Stay away from those who have foolish arguments, who talk about useless family histories, or who make trouble and fight about what the Law of Moses teaches. These things are useless and will not help anyone.
10
Give a warning to all those who cause arguments. If they continue to cause trouble after a second warning, then don't associate with them.
11
You know that people like that are evil and sinful. Their sins prove they are wrong.
12
I will send Artemas and Tychicus to you. When I send them, try hard to come to me at Nicopolis. I have decided to stay there this winter.
13
Zenas the lawyer and Apollos will be traveling from there. Do all that you can to help them prepare for their trip. Be sure that they have everything they need.
14
Our people must learn to use their lives for doing good and helping anyone who has a need. Then they will not have empty lives.
15
All the people with me here send you their greetings. Give my greetings to those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all.
