Sound Instruction and Consistent Behavior

1 But you, speak [the things] which are fitting for sound instruction. 2 Older men are to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, [and] in endurance. 3 Older women likewise [are to be] reverent in [their] behavior, not slanderous, not enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, 4 in order that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands [and to] love their children, 5 [to be] self-controlled, pure, busy at home, good, being subject to their own husbands, in order that the word of God may not be slandered. 6 Likewise, exhort the young men to be self-controlled, 7 concerning everything showing yourself [to be] an example of good deeds, in your teaching [demonstrating] soundness, dignity, 8 [a] sound message beyond reproach, in order that {an opponent}a may be put to shame, [because he]b has nothing bad to say concerning us. 9 Slaves must be subject to their own masters in everything, to be well-pleasing, not to talk back, 10 not stealing, but demonstrating all good faith, in order that they may do credit to the teaching of God our Savior in everything.
