1 Timothy 6:6-8

Context
6:6 Now godliness combined with contentment brings great profit. 6:7 For we have brought nothing into this world and so 1  we cannot take a single thing out either. 6:8 But if we have food and shelter, we will be satisfied with that. 2 

1 tc The Greek conjunction ὅτι usually means “because,” but here it takes the sense “so that” (see BDAG 732 s.v. 5.c). This unusual sense led to textual variation as scribes attempted to correct what appeared to be an error: D* and a few versional witnesses read ἀληθές ὅτι (“it is true that”), and א2 D2 Ψ Ï read δῆλον ὅτι (“it is clear that”). Thus the simple conjunction is preferred on internal as well as external grounds, supported by א* A F G 33 81 1739 1881 pc.

2 tn Grk “with these.”
