1But speak youi the things which become sound doctrine:
2That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
3The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 [To be] discreet, pure (clean; not corrupt), keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God-The Father be not blasphemed.
6Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
7In all things showing yourself a pattern of good works: in doctrine [showing] uncorruptness, gravity, with incorruption,
8Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
9 [Exhort] servants to be obedient unto their own masters, [and] to please [them] well in all [things]; not answering again;
10Not stealing, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God-The Father our Saviour in all things.
11For the grace of God-The Father that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13Looking for that Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God-The Father and our Saviour Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah];
14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar (particular; special; one’s own) people, zealous of good works.
15These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke (reprimand; strongly warn; restrain) with all authority. Let no man despise youi.
