Holiness with Contentment

The Book of Yahweh – the most accurate translation of the Bible available today – instructs us to be content in our calling and withdraw from those who teach contrary to sound doctrine. Passage, side and footnotes taken from The Book of Yahweh, The Holy Scriptures, a House of Yahweh publication…

I Timothy 6:1-10
1. Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own rulers worthy of all honor, so that the Name of Yahweh and His teaching is not blasphemed.
2. And those who have believing rulers, let them not show less respect for them because they are brothers, but rather serve them better, because those who benefit from their service are believers, and beloved. Ministers: teach and exhort these things.
3. If any man teaches differently, and does not agree to the sound instruction, the words of our King, Yahshua Messiah, and to the doctrine which is according to holiness; all of which are the Law and the Prophets
4. He is proud, understanding nothing, having a morbid interest in disputes and arguments over words (from which come envy, strife, reviling, wicked suspicions,
5. And perverse disputations by men of corrupt minds), destitute of truth, imagining that holiness is a way of making financial gain—from such withdraw yourself!
6. But holiness with contentment is great gain.
7. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain that we can carry nothing out.
8. And having food and clothing, let us be content with these.
9. But those who want to become rich will fall into temptation and a trap, and into many foolish and harmful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10. For the love of money is a root of all evil and there are some who, pursuing it, have strayed from the faith, and pierced themselves through, with many sorrows.

Side note “a” … verse 8 … food …

Hebrew root word zan. Traditionally translated food. The Hebraic Tongue Restored by Fabre d’Olivet page 343, shows this word means kind or sort.
A Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament by Julius Furst, page 397, shows this same Hebrew root word zan means not only kind or sort but genus, referring to a specific genetic makeup.
The Hebrew- Aramaic English Dictionary by Marcus Jastrow, Volume 1, page 405, shows this same Hebrew root word zan means quality, nature, kind, species.

Side note “b” … verse 8 … clothing …

Hebrew root word sat. Traditionally translated clothing. The Hebraic Tongue Restored by Fabre d’Olivet, page 408, show this Hebrew root word means to persuade.
A Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament by Julius Furst, page 975, also shows this Hebrew root word sat means to incite, to lead one to forsake another.

Since I Timothy 6:8 is speaking of righteous behavior, when this Hebrew root word sat as it is written in this scripture is speaking of persuading, or leading one to forsake another, it is speaking of a righteous man being called out, that is, being persuaded or led by Yahweh to forsake Satan, because the only forsaking a righteous man will do is to forsake all that is evil.

With these correct interpretations of these two key words in I Timothy 6:8, the correct message and/or translation this scripture is bringing is:

And having the right gene and having been called out,
let us be content with these

This scripture is telling Yahweh’s people that even if they have nothing else, they should still be content in that Yahweh caused them to have the right genetic makeup so that He could call them out at the appointed time, an action He had planned from the beginning.
