Abbott's Illustrated New Testament
1 Timothy 6



Verse 1

Under the yoke; the yoke of bondage.--Be not blasphemed; that is, that reproach be not brought upon the cause of Christ.

Verse 2

Despise them; treat them with disrespectful freedom.--The benefit; the blessings of the gospel.

Verse 3

Wholesome words; sound doctrine.

Verse 13

Who quickeneth all things; who giveth life to all things.-- Witnessed a good confession. He boldly avowed himself to be the Messiah (John 18:35-37.)

Verse 15

In his times; in his own promised time.

Verse 20

Oppositions, &c.; oppositions to the truth by false philosophy.
