Warning Against False Teachers

3 1As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus so that you may charge certain persons not 2to teach any different doctrine,
4 nor 3to devote themselves to myths and endless 4genealogies, which promote 5speculations rather than the stewardshipa from God that is by faith.
5 The aim of our charge is love 6that issues from a pure heart and 7a good conscience and 8a sincere faith.
6 Certain persons, by 9swerving from these, have wandered away into 10vain discussion,
7 desiring to be teachers of the law, 11without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions.
