American Standard Version
For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it be received with thanksgiving:
Young's Literal Translation
because every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, with thanksgiving being received,
1 Timothy 4:4 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For every creature of God is good - That is: Every creature which God has made for man's nourishment is good for that purpose, and to be thankfully received whenever necessary for the support of human life; and nothing of that sort is at any time to be refused, ουδεν αποβλητον, rejected or despised. We find a saying very similar to this in Lucian's Timon: Ουτοι αποβλητα εισι δωρα τα παρα Διος. The gifts which are from Jove ought not to be Despised. This appears to have been a proverbial saying among the heathens.
