The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 But do *thou* speak the things that become sound teaching; 1 You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.
2 that the elder men be sober, grave, discreet, sound in faith, in love, in patience; 2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
3 that the elder women in like manner be in deportment as becoming those who have to say to sacred things, not slanderers, not enslaved to much wine, teachers of what is right; 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 that they may admonish the young women to be attached to [their] husbands, to be attached to [their] children, 4 Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,
5 discreet, chaste, diligent in home work, good, subject to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be evil spoken of. 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 The younger men in like manner exhort to be discreet: 6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled.
7 in all things affording thyself as a pattern of good works; in teaching uncorruptedness, gravity, 7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness
8 a sound word, not to be condemned; that he who is opposed may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say about us: 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 bondmen to be subject to their own masters, to make themselves acceptable in everything; not gainsaying; 9 Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them,
10 not robbing [their masters], but shewing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the teaching which [is] of our Saviour God in all things. 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 which carries with it salvation for all men has appeared, 11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.
12 teaching us that, having denied impiety and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, and justly, and piously in the present course of things, 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 awaiting the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ; 13 while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
14 who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all lawlessness, and purify to himself a peculiar people, zealous for 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 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise thee. 15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
