New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
3 When I left for Macedonia, I urged you to stay there in Ephesus and stop those who are teaching wrong doctrine. 3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer
4 Don't let people waste time in endless speculation over myths and spiritual pedigrees. For these things only cause arguments; they don't help people live a life of faith in God. 4 nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God's work--which is by faith.
