1But you, speak the things which are suitable to Moshiach's orthodox Jewish doctrine. 2Zekenim need to be temperate, respectable, men of seichel, being orthodox [in Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach] in the emunah, in ahavah, in savlanut (longsuffering). 3Similarly the senior women, the Zekanot, in hitnahagut (conduct) as befits kedushah, not yentas of lashon hora nor slaves of wine, but melamedot es haTov (teachers of the Good) 4That they may encourage the young nashim to have ahavah for their ba'alim and their banim, 5To have seichel, tehorot in tznius, [Aishes Chayil] managers of the Bayit, being tovot, being submissive to their ba'alim, lest Chillul Hashem come to the Dvar HaElohim. 6The bochrim, similarly, you exhort to have seichel 7About all things, showing yourself a mofet of ma'asim tovim. In the hora'ah [of Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach], show integrity, seriousness, 8Along with dibur (speech) that is orthodox [in Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach] and beyond reproach, that the mitnagged may be brought to bushah (shame), having no lashon hora to say against you. 9Avadim (slaves) need to be submissive to their own adonim in everything, to be acceptable, not talking back, 10Not pilfering, but showing all good reliability, that they may adorn the hora'ah (teaching) of Hashem Moshieynu in all things. 11For the Chen v'Chesed of Hashem has appeared, bringing Yeshu'at Eloheynu to kol Bnei Adam, 12Instructing us to deny all that is frai (irreligious) and not of chasidus [in Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach] and all that is ta'avanut, and to live with seichel and tzidkat Hashem and yirat Shomayim in the Olam Hazeh, 13Awaiting the tikvah hameashsheret (the blessed hope), the appearing of the kavod HaEloheinu HaGadol and Moshieynu Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach Yehoshua, 14Who gave his nefesh on behalf of us, that for us he might bring in the Geulah, redeeming us MI KOL AVONOTAV ("from all Israel's sins" TEHILLIM 130:8; Isa 53:8), making tahor AM LI SEGULAH ("a people for My possession" SHEMOT 19:5), zealous for ma'asim tovim. 15Preach these things, with words that give chizzuk (strengthening) and reprove with all authority. Let no one "write you off."
