8 The saying is (A)trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful (B)to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people. 9 But (C)avoid foolish (D)controversies, (E)genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for (F)they are unprofitable and worthless.10 As for a person who stirs up division, (G)after warning him once and then twice, (H)have nothing more to do with him, 11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.
