|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Don't be in any rush to become a teacher, my friends. Teaching is highly responsible work. Teachers are held to the strictest standards.
1 Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.
