3.  As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,
4.  Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
5.  Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:
6.  From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
7.  Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
8.  But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
9.  Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10.  For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

8. We know these laws are good when they are used as God intended.

9. But they were not made for people who do what is right. They are for people who are disobedient and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who murder their father or mother or other people.

10. These laws are for people who are sexually immoral, for homosexuals and slaves traders, for liars and oath breakers, and for those who do anything else that contradicts the right teaching.

11. That comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.
