But you must teach what agrees with sound doctrine.
Instruct the older men to be sober, sensible, and self-controlled; to be sound in their faith, love, and endurance.
In the same way instruct the older women to behave as women should who live a holy life. They must not be slanderers or slaves to wine. They must teach what is good,
in order to train the younger women to love their husbands and children,
to be self-controlled and pure, and to be good housewives who submit themselves to their husbands, so that no one will speak evil of the message that comes from God.
In the same way urge the young men to be self-controlled.
