3 I urge you, as I did when I was on my way to Macedonia, to remain in Ephesus so that you may instruct certain people not to teach any different doctrine,
4 and not to occupy themselves with myths and endless genealogies that promote speculations rather than the divine training a that is known by faith.
5 But the aim of such instruction is love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and sincere faith.
6 Some people have deviated from these and turned to meaningless talk,
7 desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make assertions.
