2:1 But speak thou the things that become sound doctrine:
2:2 That the aged men be sober, chaste, prudent, sound in faith, in love, in patience.
2:3 The aged women, in like manner, in holy attire, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teaching well:
2:4 That they may teach the young women to be wise, to love their husbands, to love their children,
2:5 To be discreet, chaste, sober, having a care of the house, gentle, obedient to their husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
2:6 Young men, in like manner, exhort that they be sober.
2:7 In all things shew thyself an example of good works, in doctrine, in integrity, in gravity,
2:8 The sound word that can not be blamed: that he, who is on the contrary part, may be afraid, having no evil to say of us.
2:9 Exhort servants to be obedient to their masters, in all things pleasing, not gainsaying:
2:10 Not defrauding, but in all things shewing good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things:
2:11 For the grace of God our Savior hath appeared to all men;
2:12 Instructing us, that, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, and justly, and godly in this world,
2:13 Looking for the blessed hope and coming of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ,
2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and might cleanse to himself a people acceptable, a pursuer of good works.
2:15 These things speak, and exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
