1 Timothy 1:4

English Standard Version

4 nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship[1] from God that is by faith. (1Ti 4:7; 1Ti 6:4; 2Ti 4:4; Tit 1:14; Tit 3:9; 2Pe 1:16)

New International Version

4 or to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. Such things promote controversial speculations rather than advancing God’s work—which is by faith.

New Int. Readers Version

4 Command them not to spend their time on stories that aren't completely true. They must not waste time on family histories that never end. Things like that cause people to argue instead of doing God's work. His work is done by faith.

King James Version

4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
