1 But as for you, speak the things which are suitable to the sound teaching. 2 Teach elderly-men to be temperate, honorable, sensible, sound in the faith, in love*, in endurance.
3 Likewise*, teach elderly-women to be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers, not having been enslaved to much wine, but teachers of what is good, 4 in order that they may train the young women to be lovers of their husbands, to love their children, 5 and to be sensible, pure, homemakers, and kind, being subject to their own husbands, in order that the word of God may not be blasphemed. 6 Likewise* encourage the younger-men to be sensible, 7 providing yourself as an example of good works concerning all things; in the teaching have integrity, honesty, incorruption, 8 sound speech which is not condemnable; in order that the adverse one might be embarrassed, having no evil thing to say concerning us. 9 Encourage bondservants to subject themselves to their own masters and be well pleasing to them in all things, not contradicting them; 10 not pilfering things for themselves, but showing all good faith fulness; in order that they may adorn the teaching of God our Savior in all things. 11 For* the grace of God appeared, the salvation to all men, 12 educating us in order that we should live with self-discipline and righteously and devoutly in this current age, after having denied ungodliness and worldly lusts; 13 waiting for the blessed* hope and appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ; 14 who gave himself on our behalf, in order that he might redeem us away from all lawlessness and might cleanse a treasured people for himself, zealous of good works. 15 Speak and encourage and reprove these things with every commandment. Let no one despise you.
