1: Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2: To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, showing all meekness to all men. 3: For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, [and] hating one another. 4: But when the kindness and love of God our Savior towards man appeared, 5: Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit; 6: Which he shed on us abundantly, through Jesus Christ our Savior; 7: That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8: [This is] a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they who have believed in God may be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men. 9: But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. 10: A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, reject; 11: Knowing that he who is such, is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned by himself. 12: When I shall send Artemas to thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter. 13: Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing may be wanting to them. 14: And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they may not be unfruitful. 15: All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace [be] with you all. Amen.
