1 The but spirit expressly says, that in subsequent seasons will fall away some from the faith, adhering to spirits wandering and to teachings of demons,
2 by hypocrisy of falsespeakers, having been cauterized the own conscience,
3 forbidding to marry, to abstain from foods, which the God created for a partaking of with thanksgiving by the faithful ones and they have known the truth.
4 Because every creature of God good, and nothing cast away, with thanksgiving being received;
5 it is sanctified for through a word of God and of prayer.
6 These things setting forth to the brethren, good thou wilt be a servant of Jesus Anointed, being nourished with the words of the faith and of the good teachings, which thou hast closely followed.
7 The but profane and old women fables do thou avoid; discipline but thyself for piety.
8 The for bodily discipline for a little it is profitable; the but piety for all things profitable it is, a promise having of life of the now and of that about coming.
9 True the word and of all acceptance worthy.
10 In order of this and we toil and are reproached, because we have hoped in God living, who is a preserver of all men, especially of believers.
11 Do thou enjoin these things and do thou teach.
12 No one thee the youth let despise, but a pattern become thou of the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
13 Till I come, attend thou to the reading, to the exhorting, to the teaching.
14 Not be thou neglectful of the in thee endowment, which was given to thee through prophecy, with laying on the hands of the eldership.
15 These things do thou care for, in these things be thou; so that of thee the progress manifest may be in all things.
16 Attend thou to thyself, and to the teaching; continue thou in them; this for doing, both thyself thou wilt save and those hearing thee.
