1 Timothy 6:3-5

Context
6:3 If someone spreads false teachings 1  and does not agree with sound words (that is, those of our Lord Jesus Christ) and with the teaching that accords with godliness, 6:4 he is conceited and understands nothing, but has an unhealthy interest in controversies and verbal disputes. This gives rise to envy, dissension, slanders, evil suspicions, 6:5 and constant bickering by people corrupted in their minds and deprived of the truth, who suppose that godliness 2  is a way of making a profit.

1 Timothy 6:20

Context
Conclusion

6:20 O Timothy, protect what has been entrusted to you. Avoid 3  the profane chatter and absurdities 4  of so-called “knowledge.” 5 

1 tn Grk “teaches other doctrines,” (different from apostolic teaching, cf. 1 Tim 1:3).

2 tc Although most witnesses, including some early versions and fathers (D2 Ψ Ï sy Cyp Lcf Ambst), have ἀφίστασο ἀπὸ τῶν τοιούτων (afistaso apotwn toioutwn, “stay away from such things!”) after εὐσεβείαν (eusebeian, “godliness”; thus, “who suppose that godliness is a way of making a profit; stay away from such things!”), there seems to be little good reason for this clause’s omission in some of the oldest and best witnesses (א A D* F G 048 6 33 81 1175 1739 1881 lat co). It is likely that it crept into the text early, perhaps as a marginal comment, but it should not be considered authentic in light of the strong external evidence against it.

3 tn Grk “avoiding.” Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

4 tn Or “contradictions.”

5 tn Grk “the falsely named knowledge.”
