This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that
Christ Jesus came into the world to save
sinners, of whom I am chief.
However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all
longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:15-17
