Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

1 Timothy 2


1:1 Christ, (b-5) Or, according to some authorities, 'Christ Jesus.'

Verse 1

2:1 intercessions, (g-10) Personal and confiding intercourse with God on the part of one able to approach him, as Romans 8:27 ,Romans 8:34 ; Hebrews 7:25 .

Verse 4

2:4 knowledge (h-13) Epignosis , as Colossians 1:10 , where it is translated 'true knowledge.' It is that which acknowledges the truth of a thing, and to know the truth thus suggests possession of it. But 'full knowledge' here would hardly be an appropriate translation, as it would imply a contrast with 'partial knowledge.'

Verse 5

2:5 mediator (i-7) Or 'there is one God and one mediator.'

Verse 6

2:6 for (k-6) Antilutron huper . a ransom in place of.

Verse 7

2:7 herald (l-8) Or 'preacher,' as 2 Timothy 1:11 ; 2 Peter 2:5 .

Verse 8

2:8 men (m-6) i.e. men in contrast to women. pious (a-13) Hosios , as 'holy,' Hebrews 7:26 .

Verse 9

2:9 dress (b-12) The whole deportment; the way in which the woman presents herself, of which dress is a sign. discretion, (c-18) i.e. 'sobriety' or with 'sound mind;' so ver. 15, as Romans 12:3 ; 2 Timothy 1:7 .

Verse 12

2:12 man, (d-15) Or 'a man.' It is in contrast with women, as in ver. 8.

Verse 14

2:14 deceived, (e-11) A strong form of the word, but scriptural Greek often adds strengthening prepositions with the force little changed. see Romans 7:11 ; Romans 16:18 ; 1 Corinthians 3:18 ; 2 Corinthians 11:3 ; 2 Thessalonians 2:3 , where the same Greek word is used.

Verse 15

2:15 holiness (f-16) Hagiasmos . See Note i at Romans 1:4 .
