1
But speake thou the things which become sound doctrine:
2
That the aged men be sober, graue, temperate, sound in faith, in charitie, in patience.
3
The aged women likewise that they be in behauiour as becommeth holinesse, not false accusers, not giuen to much wine, teachers of good things,
4
That they may teach the young women to bee sober, to loue their husbands, to loue their children,
5
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God bee not blasphemed.
6
Yong men likewise exhort, to bee sober minded.
7
In all things shewing thy selfe a patterne of good workes: in doctrine shewing vncorruptnesse, grauity, sinceritie,
8
Sound speech that cannot be condemned, that hee that is of the contrarie part, may bee ashamed, hauing no euill thing to say of you.
9
Exhort seruants to be obedient vnto their own masters, and to please them well in all things, not answering againe:
10
Not purloyning, but shewing all good fidelitie, that they may adorne the doctrine of God our Sauiour in all things.
11
For the grace of God that bringeth saluatio, hath appeared to all men,
12
Teaching vs that denying vngodlinesse and worldly lusts we should liue soberly, righteously and godly in this present world,
13
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God, and our Sauiour Iesus Christ,
14
Who gaue himselfe for vs, that he might redeeme vs from all iniquitie, and purifie vnto himselfe a peculiar people, zealous of good workes.
15
These things speake and exhort, and rebuke with all authoritie.
Let no man despise thee.
