1 Thou but speak the things becoming to the wholesome teaching;
2 aged men vigilant ones to be, serious ones, prudent ones, sound ones in the faith, in the love, in the patience;
3 agedwomen in like manner in deportment becoming what is sacred, not accusers, not to wine much enslaved, good teachers.
4 so that they may wisely influence the young women, husbandlovers to be, childrenlovers,
5 prudent ones, pure ones, housekeepers, good ones, being submissive to the own husbands, that not the word of the God may be evil spoken of.
6 The younger men in like manner do thou exhort to be prudent;
7 concerning all things thyself exhibiting a pattern of good works, in the teaching incorruptness, seriousness,
8 speech sound, not to be condemned so that he from of opposition may be ashamed, nothing having concerning us to say evil.
9 Slaves, to own masters to be submissive, in all things wellpleasing to be, not contradicting;
10 not purloining, but fidelity entire showing good; so that the teaching of the saviour of us of God they may adorn in all things.
11 Shone forth for the favor of the God that saving for all men,
12 admonishing us, so that having renounced the impiety and the worldly desires, prudently and righteously and piously we may live in the present age;
13 waiting for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and savior of us Jesus Anointed;
14 who gave himself on behalf of us, so that he might redeem us from all lawlessness, and might purify for himself a people peculiar, zealous of good works.
15 There speak thou and exhort thou and reprove thou with all strictness; no one of thee let disregard.
