|<< 1 Timothy 4 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
But The Spirit speaks plainly that in the last time they shall depart one by one from the faith and they shall go after deceiving spirits and after the teachings of demons,
These persons who deceive by false appearances and speak lies and sear their consciences;
And they forbid to be married and they abstain from foods which God has created for use and thanksgiving for those who believe and know the truth.
For every creation is beautiful to God, and there is nothing to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving,
For it is sanctified by the word of God and by prayer.
6If you will teach your brethren these things, you will be a good Minister of Yeshua The Messiah, as you have been brought up in the words of faith and in the good teaching with which you have been taught.
7But abstain from insipid fables of old women and train yourself in righteousness;
8For exercise of the body profits a little for this time, but righteousness profits in everything, and it has the promise of life for this time and of the future.
9This is a trustworthy saying and is worthy of acceptance.
10For because of this we toil and we are reproached, because we hope in THE LIVING GOD, who is the Lifegiver of all of the children of men, especially of believers.
11Teach and command these things.
12Let no man despise your youth, but be an example to believers in word and in behavior, in love, in faith and in purity.
13Until I come, be diligent in reading, in prayer and in teaching.
14Do not despise the gift that is in you, which is given to you by prophecy and by the laying on of the hands of the Eldership.
15Meditate on these things and abide in them, that you may be known to every person before whom you come.
16Pay attention to your soul and to your teachings; persevere in them, for when you do these things you will bring life to your soul and to those who hear you.
