1 Timothy 1:13-15 International Standard Version (ISV)
13 In the past I was a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a violent[a] man. But I received mercy because I acted ignorantly in my unbelief, 14 and the grace of our Lord overflowed toward me,[b] along with the faith and love that are in the Messiah[c] Jesus. 15 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves complete acceptance:[d]
I am the worst of them.
1 Timothy 1:13-15 New International Version (NIV)
13 Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. 14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.
