CEBA 3 When I left for Macedonia, I asked you to stay behind in Ephesus so that you could instruct certain individuals not to spread wrong teaching. NIV 3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer CEBA 4 They shouldn't pay attention to myths and endless genealogies. Their teaching only causes useless guessing games instead of faithfulness to God's way of doing things. NIV 4 or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies.

CEBA 9 We understand this: the Law isn't established for a righteous person but for people who live without laws and without obeying any authority. They are the ungodly and the sinners.

NIV 9 We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, CEBA 10 They are people who are sexually unfaithful, and people who have intercourse with the same sex. They are kidnappers, liars, individuals who give false testimonies in court, and those who do anything else that is opposed to sound teaching.

NIV 11 that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me. CEBA 12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength because he considered me faithful. So he appointed me to ministry NIV 12 I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he considered me trustworthy, appointing me to his service. CEBA 13 even though I used to speak against him, attack his people, and I was proud. But I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and without faith. NIV 13 Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. CEBA 14 Our Lord's favor poured all over me along with the faithfulness and love that are in Christ Jesus. NIV 14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

NIV 15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst.

So if you follow them, you can wage a good war NIV 18 Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well, CEBA 19 because you have faith and a good conscience. Some people have ruined their faith because they refused to listen to their conscience, NIV 19 holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith.
