2 Aged men should be temperate, serious, sound in mind, sound in faith, in love, and in endurance.
3 Aged women likewise should be reverent in behavior and teachers of that which is good. They should not be slanderers nor enslaved to too much wine.
4 They may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 to be sober minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their own husbands, that the word of God will not be defamed dishonored.

9 Servants should to be in subjection to their masters overseersemployers. They should please them in all things and not talk back.

12 instructing us, to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present age worldperiod of time.
