1 Timothy 4 (WEBP)

[1] But the Spirit says expressly that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons,
[2] through the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron,
[3] forbidding marriage and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
[4] For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving.
[5] For it is sanctified through the word of God and prayer.
[6] If you instruct the brothers of these things, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, nourished in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine which you have followed.
[7] But refuse profane and old wives’ fables. Exercise yourself toward godliness.
[8] For bodily exercise has some value, but godliness has value in all things, having the promise of the life which is now and of that which is to come.
[9] This saying is faithful and worthy of all acceptance.
[10] For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we have set our trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.
[11] Command and teach these things.
[12] Let no man despise your youth; but be an example to those who believe, in word, in your way of life, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity.
[13] Until I come, pay attention to reading, to exhortation, and to teaching.
[14] Don’t neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the elders.
[15] Be diligent in these things. Give yourself wholly to them, that your progress may be revealed to all.
[16] Pay attention to yourself and to your teaching. Continue in these things, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

King James w/Strong’s #s

1 Timothy 4 (KJVS)

[1] Now G1161 the Spirit G4151 speaketh G3004 (PresActInd) expressly G4490, that G3754 in G1722 the latter G5306 times G2540 some G5100 shall depart from G868 (FutMidDepInd) the faith G4102, giving heed G4337 (PresActPtc) to seducing G4108 spirits G4151, and G2532 doctrines G1319 of devils G1140;
[2] Speaking lies G5573 in G1722 hypocrisy G5272; having G2743 their G2398 conscience G4893 seared with a hot iron G2743 (PerfPasPtc);
[3] Forbidding G2967 (PresActPtc) to marry G1060 (PresActInf), [and commanding] to abstain from G567 (PresMidInf) meats G1033, which G3739 God G2316 hath created G2936 (AorActInd) to G1519 be received G3336 with G3326 thanksgiving G2169 of them which believe G4103 and G2532 know G1921 (PerfActPtc) the truth G225.
[4] For G3754 every G3956 creature G2938 of God G2316 [is] good G2570, and G2532 nothing G3762 to be refused G579, if it be received G2983 (PresPasPtc) with G3326 thanksgiving G2169:
[5] For G1063 it is sanctified G37 (PresPasInd) by G1223 the word G3056 of God G2316 and G2532 prayer G1783.
[6] If thou put G5294 the brethren G80 in remembrance G5294 (PresMidPtc) of these things G5023, thou shalt be G2071 (FutInd) a good G2570 minister G1249 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, nourished up G1789 (PresPasPtc) in the words G3056 of faith G4102 and G2532 of good G2570 doctrine G1319, whereunto G3739 thou hast attained G3877 (PerfActInd).
[7] But G1161 refuse G3868 (PresMidPasDepImpr) profane G952 and G2532 old wives G1126’ fables G3454, and G1161 exercise G1128 (PresActImpr) thyself G4572 [rather] unto G4314 godliness G2150.
[8] For G1063 bodily G4984 exercise G1129 profiteth G2076 (PresInd) G5624 little G4314 G3641: but G1161 godliness G2150 is G2076 (PresInd) profitable G5624 unto G4314 all things G3956, having G2192 (PresActPtc) promise G1860 of the life G2222 that now is G3568, and G2532 of that which is to come G3195 (PresActPtc).
[9] This [is] a faithful G4103 saying G3056 and G2532 worthy G514 of all G3956 acceptation G594.
[10] For G1063 therefore G1519 G5124 we G2872 both G2532 labour G2872 (PresActInd) and G2532 suffer reproach G3679 (PresPasInd), because G3754 we trust G1679 (PerfActInd) in G1909 the living G2198 (PresActPtc) God G2316, who G3739 is G2076 (PresInd) the Saviour G4990 of all G3956 men G444, specially G3122 of those that believe G4103.
[11] These things G5023 command G3853 (PresActImpr) and G2532 teach G1321 (PresActImpr).
[12] Let G2706 no man G3367 despise G2706 (PresActImpr) thy G4675 youth G3503; but G235 be thou G1096 (PresMidPasDepImpr) an example G5179 of the believers G4103, in G1722 word G3056, in G1722 conversation G391, in G1722 charity G26, in G1722 spirit G4151, in G1722 faith G4102, in G1722 purity G47.
[13] Till G2193 I come G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd), give attendance G4337 (PresActImpr) to reading G320, to exhortation G3874, to doctrine G1319.
[14] Neglect G272 (PresActImpr) not G3361 the gift G5486 that is in G1722 thee G4671, which G3739 was given G1325 (AorPasInd) thee G4671 by G1223 prophecy G4394, with G3326 the laying on G1936 of the hands G5495 of the presbytery G4244.
[15] Meditate upon G3191 (PresActImpr) these things G5023; give thyself G2468 (PresImpr) wholly to G1722 them G5125; that G2443 thy G4675 profiting G4297 may G5600 (PresSubj) appear G5318 to G1722 all G3956.
[16] Take heed G1907 (PresActImpr) unto thyself G4572, and G2532 unto the doctrine G1319; continue G1961 (PresActImpr) in them G846: for G1063 in doing G4160 (PresActPtc) this G5124 thou shalt G4982 both G2532 save G4982 (FutActInd) thyself G4572, and G2532 them that hear G191 (PresActPtc) thee G4675.

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Timothy 4 (YLT)

[1] And the Spirit expressly speaketh, that in latter times shall certain fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and teachings of demons,
[2] in hypocrisy speaking lies, being seared in their own conscience,
[3] forbidding to marry-to abstain from meats that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those believing and acknowledging the truth,
[4] because every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, with thanksgiving being received,
[5] for it is sanctified through the word of God and intercession.
[6] These things placing before the brethren, thou shalt be a good ministrant of Jesus Christ, being nourished by the words of the faith, and of the good teaching, which thou didst follow after,
[7] and the profane and old women’s fables reject thou, and exercise thyself unto piety,
[8] for the bodily exercise is unto little profit, and the piety is to all things profitable, a promise having of the life that now is, and of that which is coming;
[9] stedfast is the word, and of all acceptation worthy;
[10] for for this we both labour and are reproached, because we hope on the living God, who is Saviour of all men-especially of those believing.
[11] Charge these things, and teach;
[12] let no one despise thy youth, but a pattern become thou of those believing in word, in behaviour, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity;
[13] till I come, give heed to the reading, to the exhortation, to the teaching;
[14] be not careless of the gift in thee, that was given thee through prophecy, with laying on of the hands of the eldership;
[15] of these things be careful; in these things be, that thy advancement may be manifest in all things;
[16] take heed to thyself, and to the teaching; remain in them, for this thing doing, both thyself thou shalt save, and those hearing thee.
