1 Timothy 4:1-12
 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
 These things command and teach.
 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw the miracles which he did.
 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men,
 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.
 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
