“Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:13 Give thyself to reading - Both publicly and privately. Enthusiasts, observe this! Expect no end without the means.
1Ti 4:13 Give attendance to reading. To the reading of the Scriptures to the people. In that age, when printed books were unknown, the knowledge of the Scriptures had to be communicated in this way. To doctrine. To instruction.
