Ellicott (after Winer's) on 1 Timothy 5:21);

1. to testify, i. e. earnestly, religiously to charge: followed by an imperative Acts 2:40; ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ καί Χριστοῦ Ἰησοῦ, 2 Timothy 4:1 (2 Kings 17:13; Xenophon, Cyril 7, 1, 17 σύ μή πρότερον ἐμβαλλε τοῖς πολεμίοις, διαμαρτύρομαι, πρίν, etc.); also with ἐνώπιον τοῦ Θεοῦ κτλ. followed by ἵνα (cf. Buttmann, 237 (204)), 1 Timothy 5:21 (followed by μή, Exodus 19:21); followed by the infinitive 2 Timothy 2:14 (not Lachmann) (Nehemiah 9:26).
