Bible Verse of the Month.
"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding the profane novelties of words, and oppositions of knowledge falsely so called."
--First Letter of St. Paul to Timothy, Chapter 6, Verse 20, Douay-Rheims Edition.
[Helpful Editorial Note: This is the first in what I hope to be a series, using various translations of verses that strike my fancy. By and large, I'm going to be using older translations.
As I explained to a friend once, my main problem with modern translations is that they sound too much like an interoffice memo, with God not asking us to repent so much as to always use the new cover sheets for the TPS reports.
Mm, yeah--that would be great.]
