In BGAD, Danker says that the word orthotomeo in 2Tm 2.15 probably means to "guide the word of truth along a straight path (like a road that goes straight to its goal), without being turned aside by wordy debates or impious talk".

The definition is a great advantage in that it respects the context; see vv. 14, 16. But not so clear as to what that would mean to Timothy and how that would look in practice.

I just noted the LEB rendering follows BGAD: "Make every effort to present yourself approved to God, a worker having no need to be ashamed, guiding the word of truth along a straight path."
