'Fables' in the Bible
Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
