Textus Receptus Bibles
Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993
|4:1||But the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, cleaving to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons,|
|4:2||in lying speakers in hypocrisy, being seared in their own conscience,|
|4:3||forbidding to marry, saying to abstain from foods, which God created for partaking with thanksgiving by the believers and those knowing the truth.|
|4:4||Because every creature of God is good, and nothing to be thrust away, but having been received with thanksgiving;|
|4:5||for through God's Word and prayerful intercourse, it is sanctified.|
|4:6||Having suggested these things to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, having been nourished by the words of faith, and by the good doctrine which you have followed.|
|4:7||But refuse the profane and old-womanish tales. And exercise yourself to godliness.|
|4:8||For bodily exercise is profitable to a little, but godliness is profitable to all things, having promise of the present life and of that coming.|
|4:9||Faithful is the Word and worthy of all acceptance;|
|4:10||for to this we also labor and are reproached, because we hope on the living God, who is deliverer of all men, especially of believers.|
|4:11||Enjoin and teach these things.|
|4:12||Let no one despise your youth, but become an example of the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.|
|4:13||Until I come, attend to reading, to exhortation, to teaching.|
|4:14||Do not be neglectful of the gift in you, which was given to you through prophecy, with laying on of the hands of the elderhood.|
|4:15||Give care to these things; be in these things in order that your progress may be plain in all.|
|4:16||Give attention to yourself and to the doctrine; continue in them, for doing this, you will both deliver yourself and those hearing you.|
