Jangling

Jangling

Foolish, empty talk.

Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: from which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain JANGLING. ( 1 Timothy 1:1 Revelation 1:5-6 )

JANGLING

jan'-gling (mataiologia, "vain discourse" "babbling"):

This word is not found in the American Standard Revised Version; once only in the King James Version (1 Timothy 1:6). The American Standard Revised Version has "vain talking," instead of "vain jangling," and evidently means proud, self-conceited talking against what God has revealed and against God Himself.
