1Timothy 6:3 If any man teach otherwise and consent not to wholesome words.(words that produce good and are sound and sensible), even the words of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

1Timothy 6:4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof comes envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings;

1Timothy 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness, from such withdraw yourself.

1Timothy 6:5.Perverse.disputings.(see verse above).of men of corrupt.(comprised from two original words meaning 'accuse so as to put you down' and 'destroy'; a keeping you down by blaming you; more on keeping you down).minds.(a corrupt mind is one of low consciousness acting selfishly and at disadvantage to others).and destitute of the truth, supposing.that gain is godliness.(I must be doing alright because things are going well financially:.Ecclesiasted 8:12; comprised from Barnes Notes: 'Judging the consistency of any course by its tendency to promote outward prosperity'; taking the Old Testament maxims to use for gain and teaching their unfounded application in New Testament times, such as Malachi 3:7-10; Amos 2:6-8, from such withdraw yourself.

1Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

1Timothy 6:7 For we brought nothing into this world and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

1Timothy 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith.content.

1Timothy 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and hurtful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition.(Hebrews 10:39).

1Timothy 6:10 For the love of money.(the love of money is covetousness; when you love something it is a great concern to you).is the root of all evil, which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 

1Timothy 6:11 But you, O man of God, flee.(get away from).these things and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

1Timothy 6:12 Fight.(means in the original 'to endeavor', 'to put forth effort':.1Corinthians 9:24-27; 2Timothy 4:7,8).the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto you are also called.(why you're here:.2Timothy 1:9).and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.(what witnesses?).

The fight of faith means to keep in your heart that it's the faith of Christ that is powerful and one does this by having the mind on that whenever one feels that his or her faith is lacking; it always is, but never His.

1Timothy 6:13 I give you charge in the sight of God, who quickens.(word 'quickens' means 'makes alive', 'brings about' in the original).all things and before Christ Emmanuel, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession.(the example of Emmanuel was always impeccable:.John 13:15; Matthew 5:48; 1Peter 2:21);

1Timothy 6:14 That you keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord.Emmanuel the Christ.(many back then expected an imminent return of He whom they saw leave Earth to again be in the spiritual realm we call 'heaven'; but when then is His second coming?).

1Timothy 6:15 Which in his times he shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords;

1Timothy 6:16 Who only has immortality.(means that without the Creator there would be immortality, no eternal life, for all eternal life is in the oneness God is; when you're in God you have immortality), dwelling in the light.(original Greek is 'phos' which means 'to make manifest especially by rays' and to 'make known one's thoughts' and 'to bring forth into the light').which no man can approach unto; whom no man has seen, nor can see; to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

Comprised with.Barnes Notes.and.Clarke's Commentary: the "Who only" refers to the oneness. Those in the oneness of God also have immortality:1Corinthians 15:53,54; 2Timothy 1:10. The word here for immortality properly means in the original 'exemption from death' and seems to mean that God in his own nature, enjoys a perfect and certain exemption from death and of course that is true as He has it by his very nature. Creatures have immortality only as they derive it from him, from being in Christ. It is one of the essential attributes of his being, that he will always exist and that death is out of the realm of God:.John 5:26 "The Father has life in himself..." 1John 5:11 "And this is the record, that God has given to us eternal life and this life is in his Son."

1Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world.(James 5:1), that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy;

1Timothy 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate.(original 'a partner in sharing, inclined to make others sharers in one's possessions, inclined to impart, free in giving, liberal').

1Timothy 6:19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against.(toward).the time to come.(original for 'the time to come' is 'caring about'), that they may lay hold on eternal life.

Another translation:.'Build in yourselves a good foundation by caring about the things toward eternal life':.1Peter 1:4; 5:4.

Or, 'lay a strong spiritual foundation down, one based on love, because this will allow you to continue on the pathway toward spiritual maturity':.Ephesians 4:13)

1Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings and oppositions of science falsely so called.

1Timothy 6:21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen..(The first to Timothy was written from Laodicea, which is the chiefest city of Phrygia Pacatiana)
