The ESV Bible was created by a team of more than 100 leading evangelical scholars and pastors. Since its publication in 2001, the ESV has gained wide acceptance and is used and trusted by church leaders, numerous denominations, and millions of individuals around the world.
About the English Standard Version (ESV)
The English Standard Version stands in the tradition of the great mainstream English Bible translations of the past half-millennium: William Tyndale's New Testament of 1526, the King James Version of 1611 (KJV), the English Revised Version of 1885 (RV), the American Standard Version of 1901 (ASV), and the Revised Standard Version of 1952 and 1971 (RSV). Continuing in the spirit of this great legacy, the ESV is an essentially literal translation that seeks to capture the exact words and phrasing of the original text – a translation philosophy known as “formal equivalence”. Although obsolete and archaic English terms have been revised according to current usage, the strength and clarity of traditional English literary expression have been retained, making this version ideal for both private study and public reading.

The First Letter of Paul to Timothy
1 Paul an apostle of Christ Jesus by com-
mand of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus
2 To Timothy, my true child in the faith:
Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father
and Christ Jesus our Lord.
Warning Against False Teachers
3 As I urged you when I was going to
Macedonia, remain at Ephesus so that you
may charge certain persons not to teach any
different doctrine, 4 nor to devote themselves to
myths and endless genealogies, which promote
speculations rather than the stewardship1 from
God that is by faith. 5 The aim of our charge is
love that issues from a pure heart and a good
conscience and a sincere faith. 6 Certain persons,
by swerving from these, have wandered away
into vain discussion, 7 desiring to be teachers
of the law, without understanding either what
they are saying or the things about which they
make confident assertions.
8 Now we know that the law is good, if one
uses it lawfully, 9 understanding this, that the
law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless
and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners,
for the unholy and profane, for those who
strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers,
10 the sexually immoral, men who practice
homosexuality, enslavers,2 liars, perjurers, and
whatever else is contrary to sound3 doctrine, 11 in
accordance with the gospel of the glory of the
blessed God with which I have been entrusted.
