1 Timothy 4:16

Context
4:16 Be conscientious about how you live and what you teach. 5  Persevere in this, because by doing so you will save both yourself and those who listen to you.

1 tn Heb “path of your foot.”

2 sn The verb is a denominative Piel from the word פֶּלֶס (peles), “balance; scale.” In addition to telling the disciple to keep focused on a righteous life, the sage tells him to keep his path level, which is figurative for living the righteous life.

3 tn The vav prefixed to the beginning of this dependent clause denotes purpose/result following the preceding imperative.

4 tn The Niphal jussive from כּוּן (cun, “to be fixed; to be established; to be steadfast”) continues the idiom of walking and ways for the moral sense in life.

5 tn Grk “about yourself and your teaching.”
