odd doctrine and the love of money

These things be teaching and exhorting;

3if any one be teaching otherwise, and do not consent to sound words — those of our Lord Jesus Christ — and to the teaching according to piety,

4he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and word-striving, out of which doth come envy, strife, evil-speakings, evil-surmisings,

5wranglings of men wholly corrupted in mind, and destitute of the truth, supposing the piety to be gain; depart from such;

6but it is great gain — the piety with contentment;

7for nothing did we bring into the world — [it is] manifest that we are able to carry nothing out;

8but having food and raiment — with these we shall suffice ourselves;

9and those wishing to be rich, do fall into temptation and a snare, and many desires, foolish and hurtful, that sink men into ruin and destruction,

10for a root of all the evils is the love of money, which certain longing for did go astray from the faith, and themselves did pierce through with many sorrows;

11and thou, O man of God, these things flee, and pursue righteousness, piety, faith, love, endurance, meekness;

12be striving the good strife of the faith, be laying hold on the life age-during, to which also thou wast called, and didst profess the right profession before many witnesses.

1 Tim 6:3-12
