1 Timothy 4
1 But the Spirit expressly says, Some will be withdrawing from the faith in later times, taking-heed to misleading spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the hypocrisy from the speakers of lies, having been branded in their own conscience; 3 forbidding to marry and commanding to abstain from foods, which God created *for reception with thanksgiving to the believing and those who have fully known the truth. 4 Because every created thing of God is good, and casting off nothing if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for* it is made holy through the word of God and through petition. 6 If you suggest these things to the brethren, you will be a good servant of Jesus Christ, being nourished in the words of the faith and of the good teaching in which you have followed closely. 7 But renounce the profane and old-wives' fables and exercise yourself to godliness*; 8 for* bodily exercise is profitable for few things, but godliness* is profitable for all things, having the promise of life the current one and the future one.
9 Faithful is the word and worthy of all acceptance. 10 For* we are also laboring and are reproached toward this end, because we have hope upon the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of the believing ones. 11 Command and teach these things. 12 Let no one despise your youth, but become an example of the believing ones: in word, in conduct, in love*, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Until I come, take-heed to the public-reading, to the encouragement, to the teaching. 14 Do not neglect the gift* which is in you, which was given to you through prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. 15 Meditate on these things; be diligent in them; in order that your progress may be apparent in all things. 16 Take-heed to yourself and to the teaching. Abide in these things; for* while practicing this, you will be saving both yourself and those who hear you.
