Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.
Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment.
Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged by God with greater strictness.
Don't be in any rush to become a teacher, my friends. Teaching is highly responsible work. Teachers are held to the strictest standards.
Do not all be teachers, my brothers, because we teachers will be judged more hardly than others.
Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers and sisters, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment.
