For 1the grace of God 2has appeared, bringing salvation 3for all people,
training us to renounce ungodliness and 4worldly passions, and 5to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in 6the present age,
137waiting for our blessed 8hope, the 9appearing of the glory of our great 10God and Savior Jesus Christ,
1411who gave himself for us to 12redeem us from all lawlessness and 13to purify for himself 14a people for his own possession who are 15zealous for good works.
Declare these things; exhort and 16rebuke with all authority. 17Let no one disregard you.
