not a novice, that he may not, being inflated, fall into the faulth of the devil.

JND Translation Notes

h
Krima is the subject-matter of which a person had to be accused. They set up the krima of the Lord on the cross; that for which he came into accusation -- the charge. So it is used here. The devil was puffed up with his own excellency, and abode not in the truth. Hence, in a strongly taken sense, our word "crime." See also Note on 1 Cor. 11.29.

W. Kelly Translation

anot a novice, lest being puffed up he fall into the devil’s charge.

a
charge [or judgment]: "Condemnation" is too strong an expression and not the sense intended. (Exp. of the Two Epist. to Timothy, p.60)
charge [or judgment]: Is "condemnation" of the devil correct in 6? κρίμα was either a suit, the matter for it, or the sentence. Mr. Green takes it as "strong impeachment from the devil;" but it seems rather his charge or fault. (Bible Treasury 14:30)
