1But you, speak what is fitting for sound teaching:
2the older men are to be sober, serious, sensible, sound in belief, in love, in endurance,
3the older women likewise are to be set-apart in behaviour, not slanderers, not given to much wine, teachers of what is good,
4in order for them to train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
5to be sensible, blameless, workers at home, good, subject to their own husbands, in order that the word of Elohim is not evil spoken of.
6Likewise urge the young men to be sensible.
7Show yourself to them an example of good works#Mt. 16:27. in all matters. In teaching show uncorruptness, seriousness,
8soundness of speech beyond reproach, in order that the opponent is put to shame, having no evil word to say about you.
9Servants should be subject to their own masters, to be well-pleasing in every way, not back-talking,
10not stealing, but showing all good trustworthiness, so that they adorn the teaching of Elohim our Saviour in every way.
11For the saving Gift of Elohim has appeared to all men,
12instructing us to renounce wickedness and worldly lusts, and to live sensibly, righteously, and reverently in the present age,
13looking for the blessed expectation and esteemed appearance of the great Elohim and our Saviour יהושע Messiah,
14who gave Himself for us, to redeem us from all lawlessness#Lawlessness is a synonym for sin (1 John 3:4), Mt. 1:21, Acts 3:19 & 26, Acts 26:18, Rom. 6:1-22, Eph. 2:1-10, 1 John 3:8, Titus 3:5. and to cleanse for Himself a people, His own possession, ardent for good works.#Mt. 16:27.
15Speak these matters, urge, and reprove#Or confute. with all authority. Let no one despise you.
