And will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 ASV
(3) For the time will come when they will not endure the sound doctrine; but, having itching ears, will heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts;
(4) and will turn away their ears from the truth, and turn aside unto fables.
1 Timothy 1:3-11 ASV
(3) As I exhorted thee to tarry at Ephesus, when I was going into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge certain men not to teach a different doctrine, (4) neither to give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questionings, rather than a dispensation of God which is in faith; so do I now. (5) But the end of the charge is love out of a pure heart and a good conscience and faith unfeigned: (6) from which things some having swerved have turned aside unto vain talking; (7) desiring to be teachers of the law, though they understand neither what they say, nor whereof they confidently affirm. (8) But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully, (9) as knowing this, that law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and unruly, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (10) for fornicators, for abusers of themselves with men, for menstealers, for liars, for false swearers, and if there be any other thing contrary to the sound doctrine; (11) according to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.
