This is a correct saying (1 Tim. 4:9)

“This saying

Is sure

And worthy

Of full acceptance.”

πιστὸς ὁ λόγος καὶ πάσης ἀποδοχῆς ἄξιος·

Paul said, “This saying is sure (πιστὸς ὁ λόγος) and (καὶ) worthy (ἄξιος) of full (πάσης) acceptance (ἀποδοχῆς).”  Only this letter to Timothy used this unique word ἀποδοχῆς, that means properly, acceptance, appreciation, or approbation.  Paul explained this saying about the importance of godliness is true and sure.  They should accept it as worthy at face value.  Godliness is more important than physical fitness.  Would do you think about physical fitness?
