1 Timothy 1:18

Context

1:18 I put this charge 1  before you, Timothy my child, in keeping with the prophecies once spoken about you, 2  in order that with such encouragement 3  you may fight the good fight.

1 sn This charge refers to the task Paul described to Timothy in vv. 3-7 above.

2 sn The prophecies once spoken about you were apparently spoken at Timothy’s ordination (cf. 1 Tim 4:14) and perhaps spoke of what God would do through him. Thus they can encourage him in his work, as the next clause says.

3 tn Grk “that by them you might fight…” (a reference to the prophecies which can encourage him in his work).
