Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
JANGLING . ‘Jangling,’ says Chaucer in the Parson’s Tale , ‘is whan man speketh to moche before folk, and clappeth as a mille, and taketh no kepe what he seith.’ The word is used in 1 Timothy 1:6 ‘vain jangling’ (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘vain talking’); and in the heading of 1 Timothy 6:1-21 ‘to avoid profane janglings,’ where it stands for ‘babblings’ in the text ( 1 Timothy 6:20 ).
