1 Timothy 1:3 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I besought thee - The apostle had seen that a bad seed had been sown in the Church; and, as he was obliged to go then into Macedonia, he wished Timothy, on whose prudence, piety, and soundness in the faith he could depend, to stay behind and prevent the spreading of a doctrine that would have been pernicious to the people's souls.

They arrived at Ephesus, where Paul left Priscilla and Aquila. He himself went into the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews.
But as he left, he promised, "I will come back if it is God's will." Then he set sail from Ephesus.
While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul took the road through the interior and arrived at Ephesus. There he found some disciples
For Macedonia and Achaia were pleased to make a contribution for the poor among the Lord's people in Jerusalem.
I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them.
2 Corinthians 11:4
For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel--
