Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

1 Timothy 3

Introduction

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

Verse 2

3:2 discreet, (g-12) i.e. 'of sound mind,' as ch. 2.9.

Verse 6

3:6 fault (h-13) Krima is the subject-matter of which a person had to be accused. They set up the krima of the Lord on the cross; that for which he came into accusation -- the charge. So it is used here. The devil was puffed up with his own excellency, and abode not in the truth. Hence, in a strongly taken sense, our word 'crime.' See also Note on 1 Corinthians 11:29 .

Verse 8

3:8 Ministers, (i-1) Diakonos , 'servants' or 'deacons.' see Romans 16:1 and 1 Corinthians 4:1 .

Verse 10

3:10 minister, (k-10) Diakoneo , to serve, as servants or deacons.

Verse 12

3:12 ministers (i-3) Diakonos , 'servants' or 'deacons.' see Romans 16:1 and 1 Corinthians 4:1 .

Verse 13

3:13 ministered (k-6) Diakoneo , to serve, as servants or deacons.

Verse 14

3:14 quickly; (l-13) More quickly than the writing of the letter supposed; but in case he delayed he wrote. The verse refers to his fears of being delayed.

Verse 16

3:16 to (a-23) Or 'has been seen of.' God (m-9) I do not enter on the criticism of this text. It very likely should read 'He who has,' &c.
