4:1 Forsooth the Spirit saith openly, for in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving attention to spirits of error, and to teachings of devils; The spirit speaketh evidently that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, and shall give heed unto spirits of error, and devilish doctrine Now the Spirit speaketh evidently, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, & shall give heed unto spirits of error, and doctrines of devils, Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils:
4:2 in hypocrisy speaking lying, and having their conscience burnt. of them which speak false through hypocrisy, and have their consciences marked with an hot iron, Which speak lies through hypocrisy, and have their consciences burned with an hot iron, Speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron,
4:3 forbidding to wed, and to abstain from meats, which God made to take with doing of thankings, to faithful men, and them that have known the truth. forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which god hath created to be received with giving thanks, of them which believe, and have known the truth, Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats which God hath created to be received with giving thanks of them which believe and know the truth.

4:6 Thou putting forth these things to brethren, shalt be a good minister of Christ Jesus; nourished with words of faith and of good doctrine, which thou hast gotten in following.

4:7 Forsooth shun thou uncovenable fables, and old women’s fables; haunt thyself to piety. But cast away unghostly and old wives’ fables. Exercise thyself unto godliness. But cast away profane, and old wives’ fables, & exercise thyself unto godliness. But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
4:8 For bodily exercitation is profitable to little thing; but piety is profitable to all things, having promise of life that now is, and that is to come. For bodily exercise profiteth little: But godliness is good unto all things, as a thing which hath promises of the life that is now, and of the life to come.

4:10 And in this thing we travail, and be cursed, for we hope in living God, that is Saviour of all men, most of faithful men. For therefore we labour and suffer rebuke, because we believe in the living god, which is the saviour of all men: but specially of those that believe. For therefore we labour & are rebuked, because we trust in the living God, which is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. For therefore we both labour, and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
4:11 Command thou this thing, and teach. Such things command and teach. These things command and teach. These things command & teach.
4:12 No man despise thy youth, but be thou ensample of faithful men in word, in living, in charity, in faith, in chastity.

4:14 Do not thou despise the grace that is in thee, that is given to thee by prophecy, with putting on of the hands of the priesthood. Despise not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee through prophecy, and with laying on of the hands of a senior. Despise not the gift that is in thee which was given thee by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the company of the Eldership. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the Presbytery.
4:15 Think thou these things, in these be thou, that thy profiting be shewed to all men. These things exercise, and give thyself unto them, that all men may see how thou profitest. These things exercise, and give thyself unto them, that it may be seen how thou profitest among all men. Meditate upon these things, give thyself wholly to them, that thy profiting may appear to all.
4:16 Take attention to thyself and to doctrine; be busy in them. For thou doing these things, shalt make both thyself safe, and them that hear thee. Take heed unto thyself and unto learning, and continue therein. For if thou shalt so do thou shalt save thyself, and them that hear thee. Take heed unto thyself, and unto learning: continue therein: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine: continue in them: for in doing this, thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
