Bible Passage

1 Timothy 3:14–16 (Listen)

The Mystery of Godliness

14 I hope to come to you soon, but I am writing these things to you so that, 15 if I delay, you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth. 16 Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:

  He1 was manifested in the flesh,
    vindicated2 by the Spirit,3
      seen by angels,
  proclaimed among the nations,
    believed on in the world,
      taken up in glory.
