Sound Teaching and Proper Living

1You, however, speak the things which become sound[1] teaching.{1} 2Aged men{2} should be temperate, sensible, discreet, and sound in the faith,{3} in love,{4} and in patience.[2]{5}

3Aged women likewise should be reverent in behavior, not slanderers,{6} not having been enslaved by much wine,{7} teachers of good, 4so that they may train the young women{8} to be lovers of their husbands, child-lovers, 5discreet, chaste, home-workers,{9} good, being subject to their own husbands,{10} so that the word of God will not be blasphemed.{11}

6Likewise, exhort the younger men{12} to be discreet.[3] 7In all things, present[4] yourself as[5] a pattern of good works;{13} in teaching, in purity, sensibleness, incorruption, sound speech, irreprehensible; so that the of opposition will be ashamed, having nothing bad to say about us.{14}

9Slaves are to be subject to their own masters in all things;{15} to be well-pleasing, not contradicting, 10not stealing, but showing all good faith, so that the teaching of God our Savior{16} they may adorn in all things.{17}

11For the grace{18} of God appeared{19} to save all men,{20} 12instructing[6] us that having denied ungodliness and worldly lusts,{21} we might live discreetly and righteously and godly in the present age,{22} 13expecting the blessed hope and appearance{23} of the glory of the great God our Savior, Jesus Christ, 14who gave Himself on our behalf,{24} that He might redeem us from all iniquity{25} and cleanse{26} for Himself a special people,{27} zealous of good works.{28}

15These things speak and exhort and convict with all authority.{29} Let no one despise you.{30}
