Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 But speak thou those things that beseem wholesome teaching; [Forsooth speak thou the things that become wholesome teaching;] 1 You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.
2 that old men be sober, chaste, prudent, whole in faith, in love, and patience; 2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
3 also old women in holy habit, not slanderers [not backbiters, or saying false blame on other men], not serving much to wine, well-teaching, that they teach prudence. 3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.
4 Admonish thou young women, that they love their husbands, that they love their children; 4 Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,
5 and that they be prudent, chaste, sober, having care of the house, benign, subject to their husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
6 Also admonish young men, that they be sober. 6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled.
7 In all things give thyself ensample of good works, in teaching, in wholeness, in firmness. [+In all things give thyself example of good works, in teaching, in holiness of living, in firmness of virtues.] 7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness
8 An wholesome word [An whole word], and unreprovable; that he that is of the contrary side, be ashamed, having none evil thing to say of you. 8 and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
9 Admonish thou servants to be subject to their lords; in all things pleasing, not again-saying, 9 Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them,
10 not defrauding, but in all things showing good faith, that they honour in all things the doctrine of God, our Saviour [that they adorn in all things the doctrine of God, our Saviour]. 10 and not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.
11 For the grace of God, our Saviour, hath appeared to all men, 11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.
12 and taught us, that we forsake wickedness and worldly desires, and live soberly, and justly, and piously in this world, [teaching us, that we, forsaking unpiety, and worldly desires, live soberly, and justly, and piously, in this world,] 12 It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,
13 abiding the blessed hope and the coming of the glory of the great God, and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 13 while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
14 that gave himself for us, to again-buy us from all wickedness [that he should again-buy us from all wickedness], and make clean to himself a people acceptable, and follower of good works. 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
15 Speak thou these things, and admonish thou, and reprove thou with all commandment; no man despise thee. [Speak thou these things, and admonish, and argue, or reprove, with all commandment; no man despise thee.] 15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
