Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.
But have nothing to do with worldly fables fit only for old women. On the other hand, discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness;
Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Spend your time and energy in training yourself for spiritual fitness.
Stay clear of silly stories that get dressed up as religion. Exercise daily in God--no spiritual flabbiness, please!
But have nothing to do with unclean and foolish stories. Give yourself training in religion:
Have nothing to do with profane myths and old wives’ tales. Train yourself in godliness,
But reject profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness.
