Paul's 1st Letter to Timothy

1 ጢሞቴዎስ 1

1:1 ጳውሎስ, የእግዚአብሔር ሥልጣን መድኃኒታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ በእኛ ተስፋ በማድረግ የኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ሐዋርያ የሆነ,
1:2 ጢሞቴዎስ ወደ, በእምነት ውስጥ የምወደው ልጄ. ጸጋው, ምሕረት, ሰላም, ከእግዚአብሔር አብ ከጌታችንም ከክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ ጌታ ከ.
1:3 Now I asked you to remain at Ephesus, while I went into Macedonia, so that you would speak strongly against certain ones who have been teaching a different way,
1:4 against those who have been paying attention to fables and endless genealogies. These things present questions as if they were greater than the edification that is of God, which is in faith.
1:5 Now the goal of instruction is charity from a pure heart, and a good conscience, and an unfeigned faith.
1:6 Certain persons, wandering away from these things, have been turned aside to empty babbling,
1:7 desiring to be teachers of the law, but understanding neither the things that they themselves are saying, nor what they are affirming about these things.
1:8 But we know that the law is good, if one makes use of it properly.
1:9 Knowing this, that the law was not set in place for the just, but for the unjust and the insubordinate, for the impious and sinners, for the wicked and the defiled, for those who commit patricide, matricide, or homicide,
1:10 for fornicators, for males who sleep with males, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,
1:11 which is in accord with the Gospel of the glory of the blessed God, the Gospel which has been entrusted to me.
1:12 እኔን ብርታት ማን እኔ ከእርሱ ዘንድ ምስጋና መስጠት, በክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ በጌታችን, እሱ እኔን ታማኝ ይቆጠራል ምክንያቱም, በአገልግሎት እኔን በማስቀመጥ,
1:13 ቀደም እንኳ እኔ ተሳዳቢና ነበር, እና አሳዳጅ, እና ንቀትን. ከዚያ በኋላ ግን የእግዚአብሔር ምህረትን አገኘሁ. እኔ ሳላውቅ ባለማመን እርምጃ ነበር ለ, ባለማመን.
1:14 እናም ስለዚህ የጌታችንም ጸጋ እጅግ በዛ አድርጓል, በክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ ባለው እምነት እና ፍቅር ጋር.
1:15 ይህ ቃል የታመነ ነው, ሁሉም በ እንዲቀበሉት የተገባ, ክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ ኃጢአተኞችን ለማዳን ወደ ዓለም መጣ የሚለው ቃል, በእነዚህም ልጆች መካከል እኔ መጀመሪያ ነኝ.
1:16 ነገር ግን እኔ ምህረትን አገኘሁ በዚህ ምክንያት ነበር, ስለዚህ በእኔ ላይ እንደ መጀመሪያ, በክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ ሁሉ ትዕግሥት ማሳየት ነበር, የዘላለም ሕይወት በእርሱ ያምኑ ዘንድ ላላቸው ሰዎች ትምህርት.
1:17 ስለዚህ, ዕድሜያቸው ንጉሥ ወደ, አትሞትም ወደ, የማይታይ, ብቻውን አምላክ, ከዘላለም እስከ ዘላለም ድረስ ክብርና ክብር ይሁን. አሜን.
1:18 This precept I commend to you, my son Timothy, in accord with the prophets who preceded you: that you serve among them like a soldier in a good war,
1:19 holding to faith and good conscience, against those who, by rejecting these things, have made a shipwreck of the faith.
1:20 Among these are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan, so that they may learn not to blaspheme.

1 ጢሞቴዎስ 2

2:1 ስለዚህ እኔ እለምንሃለሁ, በመጀመሪያ, ምልጃ ለማድረግ, ጸሎት, ልመናዎች, ሰዎች ሁሉ ስለ እና ምስጋና,
2:2 ነገሥታት, ሁሉም ከፍተኛ ቦታዎች ላይ ናቸው, ሁላችንም እግዚአብሔርን መምሰል እና ንጽሕናን ውስጥ ጸጥታ እና የተረጋጋ ሕይወት መምራት ዘንድ.
2:3 ይህ መድኃኒታችን እግዚአብሔር ፊት መልካምና ደስ የሚያሰኝ ይህ ነው,
2:4 ሰዎች ሁሉ ሊድኑና እውነቱን አንድ እውቅና ላይ ለመድረስ ይፈልጋል.
2:5 አንድ እግዚአብሔር አለ, የእግዚአብሔር በሰውም መካከል ያለው መካከለኛው ደግሞ አንድ እና, እርሱም ሰው የሆነ ክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ,
2:6 ሁሉ መቤዠትን አድርጎ ራሱን ሰጠ, በተገቢው ጊዜ ላይ ምስክር ሆኖ.
2:7 ይህን ምስክርነት, እኔ ሰባኪና ሐዋርያ ተሹመዋል, (እኔ እውነት የምናገር, እኔ አልዋሽም አይደለም) የአሕዛብ አስተማሪ ሆኖ, በእምነት እና በእውነት ውስጥ.
2:8 ስለዚህ, እኔ ወንዶች ሁሉ ቦታ መጸለይ እፈልጋለሁ, ንጹህ እጆች እያነሱ እንዲጸልዩ, ቁጣ ወይም ጭቅጭቅ ያለ.
2:9 በተመሳሳይም ደግሞ, women should be dressed fittingly, adorning themselves with compunction and restraint, and not with plaited hair, nor gold, nor pearls, nor costly attire,
2:10 but in a manner proper for women who are professing piety by means of good works.
2:11 Let a woman learn in silence with all subjection.
2:12 For I do not permit a woman to teach, nor to be in authority over a man, but to be in silence.
2:13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve.
2:14 And Adam was not seduced, but the woman, having been seduced, was in transgression.
2:15 Yet she will be saved by bearing children, if she has continued in faith and love, and in sanctification accompanied by self-restraint.

1 ጢሞቴዎስ 3

3:1 ይህ ቃል የታመነ ነው: አንድ ሰው ወደ የኤጲስቆጶሳዊ የሚፈልግ ከሆነ, መልካምን ሥራ ይመኛል.
3:2 ስለዚህ, ኤጲስ ቆጶስ ነቀፋ በላይ መሆን አስፈላጊ ነው, የአንዲት ሚስት ባል, በመጠን, ብልህ, ቸር, ንጽሕት, እንግዳ ተቀባይ, አስተማሪ,
3:3 አይደለም ሰካራም, ሳትነዘንዛቸው ግን አገደ አይደለም, የማይጣላ, ገንዘብን አይደለም;
3:4 ነገር ግን በደንብ የራሱን ቤት ይመራል አንድ ሰው, ሁሉ ንጽሕናን ጋር የበታች የሆኑ ያላቸው ልጆች.
3:5 አንድ ሰው የራሱን ቤት መምራት እንዴት አያውቅም ከሆነ ለ, የእግዚአብሔርን ቤተ ክርስቲያን እንክብካቤ እንዴት?
3:6 አዲስ የተለወጠ መሆን የለበትም, ምናልባት, በኩራት በ በመቻሏ እየተደረገ, በዲያቢሎስ ፍርድ ስር ይወድቃሉ ይችላል.
3:7 እሱ ደግሞ በውጭ ካሉት ሰዎች ደግሞ መልካም ምስክር ሊኖረው ዘንድ እንዲሁም አስፈላጊ ነው, እሱ አኗኗራችን ይወድቃሉ እና በዲያቢሎስ ነቀፋና ወጥመድም አይደለም ዘንድ.
3:8 በተመሳሳይም, ዲያቆናት, ንጹሕ መሆን አለበት, በሁለት ምላስ አይደለም, ለብዙ ወይን ጠጅ የማይጎመጁ:, የተበከለ ትርፍ ማሳደድ አይደለም,
3:9 በንጹሕ ሕሊና የሃይማኖትን ምሥጢር ይጽና.
3:10 እነዚህን ነገሮች አስቀድሞ የተረጋገጠ መሆን አለበት, ከዚያም እነርሱ ሊያገለግል ይችላል, ጥፋት ያለ መሆን.
3:11 በተመሳሳይም, ሴቶች ንጽሕት መሆን አለበት, የማያሙ:, በመጠን, በነገር ሁሉ የታመኑ.
3:12 ዲያቆናት የአንዲት ሚስት ባል መሆን አለበት, እንዲሁም የራሳቸውን ልጆቻቸውንና የራሳቸውን ቤቶች የሚመሩ ሰዎች.
3:13 ለራሳቸው ጥሩ ቦታ እንዲያገኙ ያደርጋል በሚገባ እንዳገለገሉ ያደረጉ ሰዎች, እና በክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ ባለው እምነት ብዙ ድፍረት.
3:14 እኔም እነዚህን ነገሮች የምጽፍላችሁ, እኔ በቅርቡ ወደ እናንተ እመጣለሁ ተስፋ ጋር.
3:15 ግን, እኔ ዘግይቷል ነኝ ከሆነ, በእግዚአብሔር ቤት ውስጥ ራስህን መምራት አስፈላጊ የሆነውን ውስጥ ያለውን መንገድ ማወቅ ይገባል, የሕያው እግዚአብሔር ቤተ ክርስቲያን የትኛው ነው, ዓምድና እውነት መሠረት.
3:16 እና ይህም በግልጽ ታላቅ ነው, የአምልኮት ይህን ምሥጢር, በሥጋ የተገለጠ ሲሆን, በመንፈስ የጸደቀ ነበር, ይህም ለመላእክት ታየ አድርጓል, በአሕዛብ ዘንድ የተሰበከ ነው ተደርጓል ይህም, በዓለም ውስጥ ይታመናል ነው, በክብር ያረገ ቆይቷል ይህም.

1 ጢሞቴዎስ 4

4:1 Now the Spirit has clearly said that, in the end times, some persons will depart from the faith, paying attention to spirits of error and the doctrines of devils,
4:2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, and having their consciences seared,
4:3 prohibiting marriage, abstaining from foods, which God has created to be accepted with thanksgiving by the faithful and by those who have understood the truth.
4:4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected which is received with thanksgiving;
4:5 for it has been sanctified by the Word of God and by prayer.
4:6 By proposing these things to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished by words of faith, and by the good doctrine that you have secured.
4:7 But avoid the silly fables of old women. And exercise yourself so as to advance in piety.
4:8 For the exercise of the body is somewhat useful. But piety is useful in all things, holding the promise of life, in the present and in the future.
4:9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of full acceptance.
4:10 For this reason we labor and are maligned: because we hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, most especially of the faithful.
4:11 Instruct and teach these things.
4:12 Let no one despise your youth, but be an example among the faithful in word, in behavior, አድራጎት ውስጥ, in faith, in chastity.
4:13 Until I arrive, attend to reading, to exhortation, and to doctrine.
4:14 Do not be willing to neglect the grace that is within you, which was given to you through prophecy, with the imposition of the hands of the priesthood.
4:15 Meditate on these things, so that your progress may be manifest to all.
4:16 Pay attention to yourself and to doctrine. Pursue these things. For in doing so, you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.

1 ጢሞቴዎስ 5

5:1 You should not rebuke an old man, but rather plead with him, as if he were your father; with young men, like brothers;
5:2 with old women, like mothers; with young women, in all chastity, like sisters.
5:3 Honor those widows who are true widows.
5:4 But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let her first learn to manage her own household, and to fulfill, in turn, her own obligation to her parents; for this is acceptable before God.
5:5 But she who is truly a widow and is destitute, let her hope in God, and let her be urgent in supplications and prayers, ሌሊትና ቀን.
5:6 For she who is living in pleasures is dead, while living.
5:7 And give instruction in this, so that they may be beyond reproach.
5:8 But if anyone has no concern for his own, and especially for those of his own household, he has denied the faith, and he is worse than an unbeliever.
5:9 Let a widow be chosen who is no less than sixty years of age, who was the wife of one husband,
5:10 who has testimony of her good works: whether she has educated children, or has provided hospitality, or has washed the feet of the saints, or has ministered to those suffering tribulation, or has pursued any kind of good work.
5:11 But avoid the younger widows. For once they have flourished in Christ, they will want to marry,
5:12 resulting in damnation, because they have disregarded the primacy of faith.
5:13 And being at the same time also idle, they learn to go from house to house, being not only idle, but also talkative and curious, speaking of things which do not concern them.
5:14 ስለዚህ, I want the younger women to marry, to procreate children, to be mothers of families, to provide no ready opportunity for the adversary to speak evil.
5:15 For certain ones have already been turned back to Satan.
5:16 If any among the faithful have widows, let him minister to them and not burden the Church, so that there may be enough for those who are true widows.
5:17 Let priests who lead well be held worthy of twice the honor, especially those who labor in the Word and in doctrine.
5:18 መጽሐፉ እንዲህ ይላል: “You shall not muzzle an ox as it is treading out the grain,"እና, “The worker is worthy of his pay.”
5:19 Do not be willing to accept an accusation against a priest, except under two or three witnesses.
5:20 Reprove sinners in the sight of everyone, so that the others may have fear.
5:21 I testify before God and Christ Jesus and the elect Angels, that you should observe these things without prejudgment, doing nothing which shows favoritism to either side.
5:22 You should not be quick to impose hands on anyone, nor should you take part in the sins of outsiders. Keep yourself chaste.
5:23 Do not continue to drink only water, but make use of a little wine, for the sake of your stomach and your frequent infirmities.
5:24 The sins of some men have been made manifest, preceding them to judgment, but those of others are manifested later.
5:25 በተመሳሳይም, ደግሞ, good deeds have been made manifest, but even when they are not, they cannot remain hidden.

1 ጢሞቴዎስ 6

6:1 Whoever are servants under the yoke, let them consider their masters to be worthy of every honor, lest the name and doctrine of the Lord be blasphemed.
6:2 ነገር ግን የሚያምኑም ጌቶች እነዚያ ሰዎች, እነዚህ ወንድሞች ስለ ሆኑ አይናቁአቸው በእነርሱ አትናቁ እናድርግ, እነርሱ ማመን የተወደዱ ናቸው ምክንያቱም ይልቁንም ሁሉ ይበልጥ እነሱን ለማገልገል, ተመሳሳይ ተሳታፊዎቹ
አገልግሎት. አስተምሩ እነዚህን ነገሮች ምከር.
6:3 ማንም አለበለዚያ የሚያስተምረን ከሆነ, ጌታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ጤናማ ቃላት ተስማምተዋል አይደለም, በዚያ ትምህርት ላይ በመምሰል ጋር የሚስማማ ነው,
6:4 ከዚያም እርሱ ትዕቢተኛ ነው;, ምንም ሳያውቅ, ገና ቃላት ጥያቄዎች እና ጠብ ውስጥ እየኖሩ የእንዲህ. ከእነዚህ ከ ምቀኝነት ሊነሳ, ክርክር, ስድብ, ክፉ አሳብም:
6:5 አእምሮአቸው የጠፋባቸው እና እውነትን የተነፈጉ ቆይተዋል ወንዶች መካከል ግጭት, ትርፍ መምሰል ለመሆን ማን ግምት.
6:6 ነገር ግን ይበቃኛል ጋር እግዚአብሔርን መምሰል እጅግ ማትረፊያ ነው;.
6:7 በዚህ ዓለም ምንም እንኳ አላመጣንምና ለ, እኛም ምንም ሊያስወግዱ እንደሚችሉ ምንም ጥርጥር የለም.
6:8 ግን, ያላቸው ምግብ እና መሸፈን አንዳንድ ዓይነት, እኛም ከእነዚህ ጋር ይዘት መሆን አለበት.
6:9 ወደ ፈተና እና በዲያቢሎስ ነቀፋና ወጥመድም ብዙ ፋይዳ እና ጎጂ የሆኑ ምኞቶች ወደ ሀብታም ይወድቃሉ ለመሆን የሚፈልጉ ሰዎች የሚሆን, ጥፋት ውስጥ ጥፋትም ውስጥ ሰዎች ጠለቀ ይህም.
6:10 ፍላጎት ለ ሁሉ የክፋት ሁሉ ሥር ነውና:. አንዳንድ ሰዎች, በዚህ መንገድ ላይ የሚጓጓ, ስለ እምነት ብለዋልና በብዙ ሥቃይ ራሳቸውን ተጠላልፈው አድርገዋል.
6:11 አንተ ግን, የእግዚአብሔር ሰው ሆይ, ከእነዚህ ነገሮች ሽሽ, እንዲሁም እውነተኛ ፍትሕ መከታተል, እግዚአብሔርን መምሰል, እምነት, በጎ አድራጎት, ትዕግሥት, ትሕትናንም.
6:12 መልካሙን የእምነት ገድል ተጋደል. አንተ ተብሎ ከተደረጉ ወደ የዘላለምን ሕይወት ያዝ, ና በብዙም ምስክሮች ፊት እምነት በመልካም መታመን ማድረግ.
6:13 እኔ አዝሃለሁ, በእግዚአብሔር ፊት, ሁሉ ነገር enlivens, እና በክርስቶስ ኢየሱስ ፊት, ማን: በጴንጤናዊውም በጲላጦስ ስር በመልካም መታመን ምስክርነት ሰጡ,
6:14 ትእዛዙን እንዲያከብሩ, ይህ ቀረሽ, irreproachably, ጌታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ መመለስ ወደ.
6:15 ለ በተገቢው ጊዜ, እሱ ብፁዕና ብቻውን የሆነ ኃይል ይገልጥላችኋል;, የነገሥታት ንጉሥ እና የጌቶች ጌታ,
6:16 ማን ብቻ የማይሞት ነው ተካሄደ, እና ማን ተደራሽ ብርሃን inhabits, ማንን ማንም አላየውም, ወይም እንኳ ማየት ይችላል, ለእርሱ ክብርና የዘላለም ኃይል እስከዘላለም ነው. አሜን.
6:17 Instruct the wealthy of this age not to have a superior attitude, nor to hope in the uncertainty of riches, but in the living God, who offers us everything in abundance to enjoy,
6:18 and to do good, to become rich in good works, to donate readily, to share,
6:19 to gather for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may obtain true life.
6:20 O Timothy, guard what has been deposited with you, avoiding the voice of profane novelties and of opposing ideas, which are falsely called knowledge.
6:21 Certain persons, promising these things, have perished from the faith. May grace be with you. አሜን.
