First Timothy-Timtheous Alef
To A Shepherd of Yisrael
1 Shaul, a sholiach of YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach by the commandment of YHUH our Savior and Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach our tikvah;
2 To Timtheous, my own ben emunah: Unmerited chen, rachamim and shalom, from YHUH our Abba and YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach our Master.
3 As I asked you to stay at Ephsiyah, when I went into Makedonia, that you might command some that they teach no other teaching,
4 Neither give heed to bubbe mysehs-fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes, rather than building up your emunah.
5 Now the goal of the above commandment is ahava out of a clean lev, a tov conscience and sincere emunah:
6 From which some having turned aside to foolish words;
7 Desiring to be teachers of the Torah; understanding neither what they say, nor what they affirm.
8 But we know that the Torah is tov, if a man uses it lawfully;
9 Knowing this, that the Torah is not made for a tzadik, but for the Torah-less and disobedient, for the wicked and for sinners, for Shabbat breakers, for wrong-doers, for profane, for murderers of ahvot and murderers of eemot, for killers,
10 For those who whore, for sodomites and lesbians, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound Torah-keeping;
11 According to the beautiful Besorah of the blessed Ahloha, that was committed to my trust.
12 And I give hodu to Moshiach YAHUSHA our Master, who has empowered me, in that He counted me faithful, putting me into His service;
13 Even though before I was a blasphemer and a persecutor and insulter of believers: I obtained rachamim because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
14 And the unmerited chen of our Master was exceedingly abundant to me with the emunah and ahava that is in Moshiach YAHUSHA.
15 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance: That Moshiach YAHUSHA came into the olam hazeh to save sinners; of whom I am the worst.
16 But for this cause I obtained rachamim, that in me first YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach might show forth all patience, as a pattern to those who will believe on Him to everlasting chayim after me.
17 Now to The Melech, Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the only wise Ahloha, be kavod and tifereth le-olam-va-ed.
18 This charge I commit to you, my son Timtheous, according to the prophecies which went before upon you, that you by them might wage a tov campaign;
19 Holding your emunah, in a tov conscience; because those who have rejected this charge have had their emunah shipwrecked:
20 Among those are Humenaios and Alexander; whom I have delivered to s.a.tan that they may learn not to blaspheme.
2 I urge that, first of all, supplications, tefillot, intercessions and hodu, be made for all men;
2 For melechim and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and shalom-filled chayim in all Shabbat-guarding piety and seriousness.
3 For this is tov and acceptable in the sight of YHUH our Savior;
4 Who will have all men to be saved and come to the da’at of the emet.
5 For there is Ahloha-Echad and One Mediator between Ahloha and men, The [Son of Man], YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach;
6 Who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be proclaimed in due time.
7 Of which I am ordained as a proclaimer and a sholiach – I speak the emet in Moshiach and do not lie – a teacher of the goyim in the emunah and emet.
8 I desire therefore that men make tefillot everywhere, lifting up kadosh hands, without wrath, or doubting.
9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with decency and sensitive chochmah; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly outfits;
10 But that which becomes a woman professing Shabbat-guarding piety with tov mitzvoth.
11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I do not allow a woman to teach, by usurping authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Ahdahm was first formed, then Chavah.
14 And Ahdahm was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
15 But she shall give brachot and chayim by the children she bears, if of course they continue in emunah, ahava and set apartness with sensible behavior.
3 This is a emet saying, if a man desires the office of a teaching-overseer, or shamesh, he desires a tov work.
2 A teaching overseeing shamesh then must be blameless, the husband by at least one-an echad isha, vigilant, sober, of tov behavior, given to hospitality, able to teach;
3 Not given to excessive wine, not a short-tempered brawler, not a lover of unjust gains; but patient and gentle;
4 One that oversees his own bayit well, having his children in subjection living in all purity;
5 For if a man knows not how to oversee his own bayit, how shall he take care of the kehilla of YHUH?
6 Not a new believer, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of s.a.tan.
7 Moreover he must have a tov report of those who remain outside Yisrael; lest he fall into the reproach and the snare of s.a.tan.
8 Likewise must the shamashim also be pure, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy for unjust gain;
9 Holding the divine sod of the emunah in a clean conscience.
10 And let these shamashim also first be tested and examined; then let them use the office of a shamesh, after having been found blameless.
11 Even so must their wives be of tov character, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.
12 Let the shamashim be the husbands by at least one-echad isha, overseeing their children and their own houses well.
13 For they that have used the office of a shamesh well, gain a tov standing and great increase with the emunah which is in Moshiach YAHUSHA.
14 These things I write to you, hoping to come to you shortly:
15 But if I delay, that you may know how you ought to behave yourself in Beit YHUH, which is the Kehilla of The Living Ahloha, the pillar and foundation of the Torah of emet.
16 And truly great is the sod of our Shabbat-guarding piety and tzedakah: He was manifest in the flesh, declared right in The Ruach, seen by heavenly malachim, proclaimed among Beit Yisrael, in and from all the goyim, believed on in the olam hazeh, then received up into The Tifereth.
4 Now The Ruach speaks expressly, that in the yamim acharonim some shall depart from the emunah, giving heed to seducing ruachim and teachings of shedim;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience branded with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry and commanding to abstain from foods, which YHUH has created to be received with hodu by those who believe and know the emet.
4 For every creature of YHUH is tov and nothing to be refused, if it be received with hodu:
5 If it has already been made kadosh by The Word of YHUH and tefillah.
6 If then you teach these things to the Yisraelite brothers, you shall be a tov eved of YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach, nourished up in the Words of emunah and of tov teaching, which you have followed closely.
7 But refuse profane old wives’ fables; train yourself rather by Shabbat-guarding piety.
8 For bodily exercise profits some: but Shabbat-guarding piety is profitable for all things, having the promise of the chayim that now is and of the olam haba that is to come.
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.
10 For therefore we both labor and suffer reproach because we trust in the living Ahloha, who is the Savior of all men, specifically of those that believe.
11 These things command and teach.
12 Let no man despise your youth; but be an example to the believers in Yisrael, in word, in behavior, in ahava, in ruach, in emunah, in purity.
13 Until I come, pay attention to reading Torah, to exhortation, to teaching.
14 Neglect not the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the shamashim.
15 Practice these things; give yourself fully to them; that your progress may appear to kol Yisrael.
16 Take heed to yourself and to your teachings; continue in them: for in doing this you shall both save yourself and those that hear you.
5 Rebuke not a shamesh, but treat him as an abba in the emunah; and the younger men as Yisraelite brothers;
2 The elderly women as eemot; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
3 Honor widows that are widows indeed.
4 But if any widow have children, or nephews, let them first learn to show Shabbat-guarding piety at home and let the children care for them and so repay their parents: for that is tov and acceptable before YHUH.
5 And she that is a widow indeed and is all-alone, trusts in YHUH and continues in supplications and tefillot both during maariv and shacrit.
6 But she that lives in pleasure is dead while she lives.
7 And these things command, that they may be blameless.
8 But if any does not provide for his own, especially for those of his own bayit, he has denied the emunah and is worse than an infidel.
9 Let not a widow be enrolled for community support under sixty years old, having been the isha of just one man,
10 Well spoken of for tov mitzvoth; if she has brought up children, if she has housed non-Yisraelite gerim, if she has washed the feet of the Yisraelite kidushim, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed every tov mitzvah, then let her be added to the community support rolls.
11 But the younger widows refuse for community enrollment: for when they will begin to be headstrong against Moshiach, they will marry;
12 Having guilt because they have cast off their first emunah.
13 Also they learn to be idle, wandering about from bayit to bayit; and not only idle, but also become gossiping busybodies, speaking things that they should not.
14 I resolve therefore that the younger women marry, bear children and guide the bayit, giving no occasion to the adversary to speak disdainfully.
15 For some women have already turned aside after s.a.tan.
16 If any man, or woman that believes has widows in their homes, let them assist them and let not the kehilla be charged; so that the kehilla can relieve them that are truly widows.
17 Let the shamashim that oversee well be counted worthy of double kavod, especially those who labor in The Word and in Torah.
18 For the Katuv says, You shall not muzzle the ox that treads out the grain. And, The laborer is worthy of his reward.
19 Against a shamesh receive not an accusation, without two, or three witnesses.
20 Those who sin rebuke before all, so that others also may fear.
21 I adjure you before YHUH and The Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach and the elect heavenly malachim, that you shomer these things without preferring one over another, doing nothing by partiality.
22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be a partaker of other men’s sins: keep yourself clean.
23 Drink mayim no longer, but use a little wine for your stomach’s sake and your ongoing infirmities.
24 Some men’s sins are obvious leading to mishpat; but those of others will be seen later.
25 Likewise also the tov mitzvoth of some are manifest now; and those who do not perform mitzvoth cannot be hidden.
6 Let those who are believing avadim under a yoke count their own masters worthy of all kavod, that the Name of YHUH and His teaching be not blasphemed.
2 And those that have believing masters, let them not despise them because they are Yisraelite brothers; but rather do them service because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit of the masters. These things teach and exhort.
3 If any man teach otherwise and consent not to wholesome words, even The Words of our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach and to the teaching which is according to Shabbat-guarding piety;
4 He is proud, knows nothing, but is sick, engaging in questions and verbal battles, from which comes envy, contention, strife, blasphemy, evil suspicions,
5 Worthless disputes of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the emet, supposing that serving YHUH is a means to unjust wealth and is the same as Shabbat-guarding piety: from such withdraw yourself.
6 But Shabbat-guarding piety with contentment is the greatest gain.
7 For we brought nothing into the olam hazeh and it is certain we can carry nothing out of it.
8 And having food and clothing let us be content with these.
9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which plunge men into destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which some have longed after and have fallen from the emunah and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
11 But you, O man of YHUH, flee these things; and follow after tzedakah, Shabbat-guarding piety, emunah, ahava, patience and meekness.
12 Fight the tov fight of emunah, grab hold on eternal chayim, for which you are also called and have professed a tov profession before many witnesses.
13 I give you charge in the sight of YHUH, who quickens all things and before Moshiach YAHUSHA, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a tov confession;
14 That you keep this mitzvah without spot, blameless, until the appearing of our Master YAHUSHA Ha Moshiach:
15 Who in His own timing shall show, just who is the blessed and only Eternal Ruler, The Melech HaMelechim and Adon Adonim;
16 Who alone has immortality, dwelling in The Ohr that no man can approach; whom no man has seen, or can see: to whom be kavod and Power le-olam-va-ed. Ahmein.
17 Charge them that are rich in the olam hazeh, that they be not proud, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living Ahloha, who gives us richly all things to enjoy;
18 That they do tov, that they are rich in tov mitzvoth, ready to give tzedakah, willing to share their wealth;
19 Laying up in store for themselves a tov foundation for the olam haba, that they may grab hold of eternal chayim.
20 O Timtheous, guard that which is committed to your trust, avoiding profane and empty babblings and the contradictions of false so-called worldly da’at:
21 Who some professing have strayed from the emunah. Unmerited chen be with you. Ahmein. X
1ˢͭ 1:3 A hotbed of Efraimite settlement, as Paul answered that call in the Macedonian vision (Acts 16:8-13). Greek-speaking exiles were many and were from the lost tribes.
1ˢͭ 1:4 The entire basis for two-house truth and the Yisraelite character of most end-time nations are not based on any kind of genealogy, or any sort of birth validation. They are based only on Scripture and the many promises found for the children of the promise, who would be more than the children of the bondwoman. If the physical sons of Ishmael number one billion, the sons of Jacob cannot number less. These and many other such promises are the basis for the trust that most nations are filled with the seed of Israel.
1ˢͭ 1:7 A Torah-teacher must be mature and not a new babe in Messiah. A mature Yisraelite will use Torah as the full illumination of Messiah's teaching. He, or she will not use it to obtain salvation without King Messiah.
1ˢͭ 1:9 See note on Second Peter 1:3.
1ˢͭ 1:11 The Good News is the cure for Torah-breaking, not the cure for Torah itself.
1ˢͭ 1:17 As seen here, man does not have an immortal nephesh, or any other such thing. Man can acquire immortality of the nephesh by being clothed with Messiah’s immortality.
1ˢͭ 1:20 “Delivered to s.a.tan” is a different way of saying that they were put outside, or removed from the camp of believing Israel for discipline and protection of the sheep.
1ˢͭ 2:5 There is no approach to YAH other than by Israel's King Messiah. This includes Torah-keeping without Messiah as personal Savior.
1ˢͭ 2:7 Strong’s Greek # 1484 word is ethnos, or “nations,” not “pagans,” or “nations.” Here in Paul’s own words, he outlines his calling to the nations and the seed of Israel now filling those nations.
1ˢͭ 2:9 Yisraelite women must dress very modestly, with the idea of covering rather than revealing. They thus reserve their bodies for Messiah and their husbands, not for men, whether saved, or unsaved. Yisraelite women, who do not dress modestly, show that they have not yet fully escaped Babylon, where Sunday dress is often better left unreported.
1ˢͭ 2:11 Silent spirit. Not under a religious gag order.
1ˢͭ 2:12 A Yisraelite woman can minister anywhere at any time, as this verse indicates. The main point being that she always must be under a set apart man’s covering, whether it is denominational, ecclesiastical, or marital. Single women called to active ministry simply need to find a man, or set apart men to be their spiritual covering, to whom they are truly accountable in deed and not in concept only.
1ˢͭ 2:14 Divine order is the issue, not the verbal gagging of over half the human race.
1ˢͭ 3:2 A congregational leader in Israel in today’s times cannot be single and must have at least one wife, just as in past times. The word in Greek is “mia,” which means one of several, one in a sequence, or the potential first of several, as opposed to an absolute one, which would be the word “heis.” Paul’s careful use of “mia” shows that he is not contradicting Torah as many allege. The Hebrew word “echad” is used to identify the plurality in the divinity of YAH and is the Hebrew equivalent of the Greek word “mia.”
1ˢͭ 3:12 A congregational elder in Israel in today’s times cannot be single and must have at least one wife, just as in past times.
1ˢͭ 3:15 Since “truth” is defined as “Torah” in Psalm 119:142, the Nazarene Yisraelite congregation is the pillar of all truth, both Torah and Messiah.
1ˢͭ 3:16 Aramaic Peshitta.
1ˢͭ 3:16 Efrayim-Israel.
1ˢͭ 4:3 Forbidding to marry, as a human originated doctrine is demonic, for it leads to suppression and unnatural manifestations of sexuality. Only those to whom it is given by Messiah can lead such a life.
1ˢͭ 4:3 All foods are to be considered edible if they are considered food in the first place. But all unclean foods in Torah are not considered food. And as such, Paul tells returning Israel that only real foods, or what YAH calls food fit for human consumption should be received. This is confirmed later in verse 5. So the heresy is religious doctrines that forbid certain clean foods.
1ˢͭ 4:4 Verse 5 defines what creatures YAH considers good.
1ˢͭ 4:5 Nothing should be refused and rejected if it is already previously set apart by The Word of YAH and tefillah. So that tefillah and thanksgiving should only be given over foods that are already set apart in YAH’s word and the only place we find a menu of set apart foods is in Torah. So the doctrine of demons is a religious attempt by demons to try and get mankind to abstain from foods on the list of clean foods, already set apart by the word. Just like marriage that is already set apart by the word, the demons try and stop people from marrying and instead introduce substitute perversities.
1ˢͭ 4:8 The eternality of a Shabbat-keeping lifestyle, as found in Isaiah 66, will serve us well in this age and in the age to come, as opposed to bodily exercise whose benefits are limited to this age.
1ˢͭ 4:8 The Yisraelite mind sees time divided into just two ages. This age and that age. This is how YAH sees time as well. The redeemed in this age enter the next. This understanding is crucial in letting go of dispensational time frames, which also are doctrines of s.a.tan, since man cannot possibly know when one age begins and the next ends. Man has added ages, not found in Scripture due to severe deceptions about ecclesiology (who it is that actually constitutes the single elect people of YAH ).
1ˢͭ 4:10 This is not teaching universalism, but rather that atonement while made available to all men, specifically benefits only those believers who accept it.
1ˢͭ 4:13 The Renewed Covenant had not yet been written.
1ˢͭ 4:16 Doctrine that is correct saves. Incorrect doctrine leads astray.
1ˢͭ 5:8 This applies first and foremost to the personal home, as well as the House of Israel, the community of faith.
1ˢͭ 5:17 The leader of a Yisraelite Nazarene community, is one who is not merely an elder, but a teaching elder.
1ˢͭ 5:19 Do not believe any accusation against an elder. The charge does not equal guilt, since the charge is often levied by s.a.tan. If witnesses cannot be found, all further thoughts and actions must be dropped.
1ˢͭ 5:22 A Yisraelite minister must first be tested for doctrine, commitment, stability, consistency and purity prior to any human ordination.
1ˢͭ 6:10 Chasing money, as opposed to having YAH provide as per brit obligation, is step one to a denial of the faith, as so often happens when mammon knocks YAH off the throne in a believer's heart.
