16 Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.

Read 2 Timothy 2:16 Using Other Translations

But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness,
Avoid worthless, foolish talk that only leads to more godless behavior.
