Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the Spirit expressly speaketh, that in latter times shall certain fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing 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 in hypocrisy speaking lies, being seared in their own conscience, 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
3 forbidding to marry -- to abstain from meats that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those believing and acknowledging 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 because every creature of God [is] good, and nothing [is] to be rejected, with thanksgiving being received, 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,
5 for it is sanctified through the word of God and intercession. 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
6 These things placing before the brethren, thou shalt be a good ministrant of Jesus Christ, being nourished by the words of the faith, and of the good teaching, which thou didst follow after, 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 and the profane and old women's fables reject thou, and exercise thyself unto piety, 7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.
8 for the bodily exercise is unto little profit, and the piety is to all things profitable, a promise having of the life that now is, and of that which is coming; 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 stedfast [is] the word, and of all acceptation worthy; 9 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance
10 for for this we both labour and are reproached, because we hope on the living God, who is Saviour of all men -- especially of those believing. 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 Charge these things, and teach; 11 Command and teach these things.
12 let no one despise thy youth, but a pattern become thou of those believing in word, in behaviour, in love, in spirit, 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 heed to the reading, to the exhortation, to the teaching; 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching.
14 be not careless of the gift in thee, that was given thee through prophecy, with laying on of the hands of the eldership; 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 of these things be careful; in these things be, that thy advancement may be manifest in all things; 15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.
16 take heed to thyself, and to the teaching; remain in them, for this thing doing, both thyself thou shalt save, and those hearing thee. 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
