1 Timothy 1:20

Context
1:20 Among these are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I handed over to Satan 1  to be taught not to blaspheme.

1 sn The expression handed over to Satan refers to an act of discipline mentioned by Paul here and in 1 Cor 5:5, with a remedial goal, not a punitive one. The Greek word translated taught in this verse is used of “discipline, training of children” to lead them to correct behavior.
