The design of the epistle appears to be, that Timothy having
been left at Ephesus, St. Paul wrote to instruct him in the
choice of proper officers in the Church, as Well as in the
Exercise of a regular ministry. Also, to caution against the
influence of false teachers, who By subtle distinctions and
endless disputes, corrupted the purity and simplicity of the
Gospel. He presses upon him constant regard to the greatest
diligence, faithfulness, and zeal. These subjects occupy the
first four chapters; the fifth Chapter instructs respecting
particular classes; in the latter part, controversies and
disputes are condemned, the Love of Money blamed, and the rich
exhorted to good Works.
