But as for you, teach what accords with 1sounda doctrine.
Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, 2sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.
33Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, 4not slanderers 5or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good,
and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,
to be self-controlled, 6pure, 7working at home, kind, and 8submissive to their own husbands, 9that the word of God may not be reviled.
Likewise, urge 10the younger men to be self-controlled.
Show yourself in all respects to be 11a model of good works, and in your teaching 12show integrity, 13dignity,
and 14sound speech that cannot be condemned, 15so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.
916Slavesb are to be submissive to their own masters 17in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative,
not pilfering, 18but showing all good faith, 19so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.
For 20the grace of God 21has appeared, bringing salvation 22for all people,
training us to renounce ungodliness and 23worldly passions, and 24to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in 25the present age,
1326waiting for our blessed 27hope, the 28appearing of the glory of our great 29God and Savior Jesus Christ,
1430who gave himself for us to 31redeem us from all lawlessness and 32to purify for himself 33a people for his own possession who are 34zealous for good works.
Declare these things; exhort and 35rebuke with all authority. 36Let no one disregard you.
