As I urged you aupon my departure for 1Macedonia, bremain on at 2Ephesusso that you may instructcertainmen not to 3teachstrangedoctrines,
4nor to cpayattention to 4myths and endless5genealogies, whichgiverise to mere 6speculationratherthan7furthering dthe administration of God which is by faith.
But the goal of our e8instruction is love9from a pureheart and a 10goodconscience and a sincere11faith.
For somemen, straying from thesethings, have turnedaside to 12fruitlessdiscussion,
713wanting to be 14teachers of the Law, even though they do not understandeitherwhat they are sayingor the matters aboutwhich they makeconfidentassertions.
But we know that 15the Law is good, ifoneuses it lawfully,
9realizing the fact that 16law is not made for a righteousperson, but for those who are lawless and 17rebellious, for the 18ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and 19profane, for those who kill their fathersormothers, for murderers10fand g20immoralmenhand 21homosexualsiand 22kidnappersjand 23liarskand 24perjurers, and whateverelse is contrary to 25soundteaching,
11according to 26the gloriousgospel of 27the blessedGod, with which I have been 28entrusted.
