Titus 2
1Only speak what is fit for learning wholly, 2teaching old men in vigilance that they may be honest, sober-- incorrupt in faith, love, and incentive,

3in the same way the old women that they may be holy as to behaviour, not slanderers-- nor suffering any addiction to wine-- teachers of what is right,

4so as to show young ones to be affectionate toward their husbands and fond of their children, 5as good homemakers, having modesty, discretion, subjecting themselves privately to their own husbands, that no evil may be spoken of the word of God.

6In a similar way urge the younger men to be of sound mind, 7in every way setting an example yourself of all good works by pure and serious teaching, 8using true and guilt-free words, that no one on the other side may shame us, echoing evil words against us.

9Slaves are to be obedient to their masters, pleasing them fully in every way, not talking back, 10not stealing but, on the contrary, showing all good faith in all things which adorn the instruction of our Saviour, God-- 11shining, as in thanks to God for the salvation of all men 12we teach and learn to turn off ungodliness and worldly desires, to live with a sound mind, righteously, in godliness, staying in the moment, 13as we admit the happy hope-- the manifestation of this praise of that mighty God and of the Saviour of us, Jesus-- the Chosen One.

14He gave himself for us and redeemed us out of all unrighteousness, even cleansing for himself a people distinguished by their zest for useful, beautiful acts.

15Thus speak and console or reprove with all authority. Let no one despise you.

Titus 2 1
But speak thou the things which befit the sound doctrine:
Titus 2 2
that aged men be temperate, grave, sober-minded, sound in faith, in love, in patience:
Titus 2 3
that aged women likewise be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers nor enslaved to much wine, teachers of that which is good;
Titus 2 4
that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
Titus 2 5
[to be] sober-minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed:
Titus 2 6
the younger men likewise exhort to be sober-minded:
Titus 2 7
in all things showing thyself an ensample of good works; in thy doctrine [showing] uncorruptness, gravity,
Titus 2 8
sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of us.
Titus 2 9
[Exhort] servants to be in subjection to their own masters, [and] to be well-pleasing [to them] in all things; not gainsaying;
Titus 2 10
not purloining, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
Titus 2 11
For the grace of God hath appeared, bringing salvation to all men,
Titus 2 12
instructing us, to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present world;
Titus 2 13
looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Titus 2 14
who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a people for his own possession, zealous of good works.
Titus 2 15
These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
