The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 But the Spirit speaks expressly, that in latter times some shall apostatise from the faith, giving their mind to deceiving spirits and teachings of demons 1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, cauterised as to their own conscience, 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
3 forbidding to marry, [bidding] to abstain from meats, which God has created for receiving with thanksgiving for them who are faithful and know the truth. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.
4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing [is] to be rejected, being received with thanksgiving; 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,
5 for it is sanctified by God's word and freely addressing [him]. 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
6 Laying these things before the brethren, thou wilt be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished with the words of the faith and of the good teaching which thou hast fully followed up. 6 If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, brought up in the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed.
7 But profane and old wives' fables avoid, but exercise thyself unto piety; 7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.
8 for bodily exercise is profitable for a little, but piety is profitable for everything, having promise of life, of the present one, and of that to come. 8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.
9 The word [is] faithful and worthy of all acceptation; 9 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance
10 for, for this we labour and suffer reproach, because we hope in a living God, who is preserver of all men, specially of those that believe. 10 (and for this we labor and strive), that we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, and especially of those who believe.
11 Enjoin and teach these things. 11 Command and teach these things.
12 Let no one despise thy youth, but be a model of the believers, in word, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 12 Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.
13 Till I come, give thyself to reading, to exhortation, to teaching. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.
14 Be not negligent of the gift [that is] in thee, which has been given to thee through prophecy, with imposition of the hands of the elderhood. 14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.
15 Occupy thyself with these things; be wholly in them, that thy progress may be manifest to all. 15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.
16 Give heed to thyself and to the teaching; continue in them; for, doing this, thou shalt save both thyself and those that hear thee. 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
