2 Timothy 2:16-17

Context
2:16 But avoid profane chatter, 1  because those occupied with it will stray further and further into ungodliness, 2  2:17 and their message will spread its infection 3  like gangrene. Hymenaeus and Philetus are in this group. 4 

1 sn Profane chatter was apparently a characteristic of the false teachers in Ephesus (cf. 1 Tim 1:3-4; 4:7; 6:20).

2 tn Grk “they [who engage in it] will progress even more in ungodliness.”

3 tn Or “eat away.”

4 tn Grk “of whom are Hymenaeus and Philetus.” Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, this last clause has been made a new sentence in the translation.
