1: But speak thou the things which befit the sound doctrine: 2: that aged men be temperate, grave, sober-minded, sound in faith, in love, in patience: 3: that aged women likewise be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers nor enslaved to much wine, teachers of that which is good; 4: that 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 be not blasphemed: 6: the younger men likewise exhort to be sober-minded: 7: in all things showing thyself an ensample of good works; in thy doctrine [showing] uncorruptness, gravity, 8: sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of us. 9: [Exhort] servants to be in subjection to their own masters, [and] to be well-pleasing [to them] in all things; not gainsaying; 10: not purloining, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. 11: For the grace of God hath appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 12: instructing us, to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present world; 13: looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14: who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a people for his own possession, zealous of good works. 15: These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
