1 Timothy 4Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)
4 1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will depart[a]from the faith, paying-attention-to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons 2 by means of the hypocrisy of liars having been seared as to their own conscience— 3 forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods which God created for a receiving with thanksgiving by the ones who are believers and know[b] the truth. 4 Because every creature of God is good. And nothing being received with thanksgiving is to be rejected, 5 for it is sanctified[c] by the word of God and prayer. 6 While pointing-out these things to the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, while being nourished in the words of the faith and the good teaching which you have closely-followed. 7 But be declining[d] the profane[e] and old-womanish myths.
But You Be Training Yourself For Godliness In Your Character And Teaching
But be training[f] yourself for godliness. 8 For bodily training is profitable for a little, but godliness is profitable for all things— having promise for the present life and the one coming. 9 The saying is trustworthy and worthy of full acceptance. 10 For we are laboring and struggling[g] for this[h], because we have put our hope upon the living God, Who is the Savior of all people— especially of believers. 11 Be commanding and teaching these things.12 Let no one be-looking-down-on[i] your youth, but be a pattern for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 13 Until I come[j], be paying-attention-to the reading[k], the exhortation, the teaching. 14 Do not be careless[l]of the gift in you, which was given to you through a prophecy with the laying-on of the hands of the council-of-elders. 15 Be taking-care-with these things, be in these things, in order that your progress may be evident to everyone. 16 Be fixing-your-attention-on yourself and your teaching. Be continuing in them. For while doing this, you will save both yourself and the ones hearing you.
