17 Charge them that are rich in eethis world, that they fbe not highminded, gnor htrust in †iuncertain riches, but in hjthe living God, kwho giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 18 That they do good, that lthey be rich in good works, ready to distribute, ||mwilling to communicate; 19 nLaying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may olay hold on eternal life. 20 O Timothy, keep pthat which is committed to thy trust, avoiding qprofane and vain babblings, and roppositions of science falsely so called: 21 Which some professing shave erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.
