(14) These things write I unto thee.--"These things" probably referred only to the directions respecting the special qualification to be sought for in candidates for the office of the overseers (presbyters) and deacons.

Hoping to come unto thee shortly.--The participle here has a concessive form, "though I hope," &c. "I write these special urgent directions to you, though my hope is that I shall be with you sooner than such detailed instructions presuppose."

Verse 14. - To come unto thee; to Ephesus, where Timothy was (1 Timothy 1:3).
