But as for you, teach what accords with 1sound doctrine.
Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, 2sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.
3Older 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.
16Slaves 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.
