The saying is (A)trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful (B)to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people. But (C)avoid foolish (D)controversies, (E)genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for (F)they are unprofitable and worthless. 10 As for a person who stirs up division, (G)after warning him once and then twice, (H)have nothing more to do with him, 11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

Final Instructions and Greetings

12 When I send Artemas or (I)Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me (J)at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there. 13 Do your best to speed Zenas the lawyer and (K)Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing. 14 And let our people learn (L)to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not (M)be unfruitful.

15 All who are with me send greetings to you. Greet those who love us in the faith.

(N)Grace be with you all.
