My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.

Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.
The Amplified Bible

Not many [of you] should become teachers (self-constituted censors and reprovers of others), my brethren, for you know that we [teachers] will be judged by a higher standard and with greater severity [than other people; thus we assume the greater and accountability and the more condemnation].
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

Stop becoming many teachers, my brethren, knowing that we shall receive a more severe sentence of condemnation,
Phillips’ Modern English

Don’t aim at adding to the number of teachers, my brothers, I beg you! Remember that we who are teachers will be judged by a much higher standard.

Many of you, my brothers, should avoid becoming teachers, because you know that we teachers are going to be judged with stricter judgment than other people.
