3 As I urged you when I went to Macedonia, g remain in Ephesus h so that you may instruct certain people i not to teach different doctrine 4 or to pay attention to myths j and endless genealogies. These promote empty speculations rather than God’s plan, k which operates by faith. 5 Now the goal of our instruction is love l that comes from a pure heart, m a good conscience, n and a sincere faith. o 6 Some have deviated from these and turned aside to fruitless discussion. 7 They want to be teachers of the law, although they don’t understand what they are saying or what they are insisting on.
