The King James Version Bible

1 Timothy 6:10-16

  1. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

  2. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

  3. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

  4. I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession;

  5. That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

  6. Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

  7. Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
