Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 But as for you, you must speak in a manner that befits wholesome teaching. 1 You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.
2 Exhort aged men to be temperate, grave, sober-minded, robust in their faith, their love and their patience. 2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
3 In the same way exhort aged women to let their conduct be such as becomes consecrated persons. They must not be slanderers nor enslaved to wine-drinking. They must be 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 They should school the young women to be affectionate to their husbands and to their children, to be sober-minded, pure in their lives, 4 Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,
5 industrious in their homes, kind, submissive to their husbands, so that the Christian teaching may not be exposed to reproach. 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 In the same way exhort the younger men to be discreet, 6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled.
7 and above all make your own life a pattern of right conduct, having in your teaching no taint of insincerity, but a serious tone, 7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness
8 and healthy language which no one can censure, so that our opponents may feel ashamed at having nothing evil to say against 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 Exhort slaves to be always obedient to their owners, and to give them satisfaction in everything, not contradicting and not pilfering, 9 Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them,
10 but manifesting perfect fidelity and kind feeling, in order to bring honour to the teaching 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 has displayed itself with healing power to all mankind, 11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.
12 training us to renounce ungodliness and all the pleasures of this world, and to live sober, upright, and pious lives at the present time, 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 in expectation of the fulfilment of our blessed hope--the Appearing in 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 to purchase our freedom from all iniquity, and purify for Himself a people who should be specially His own, zealous for doing 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 Thus speak, exhort, reprove, with all impressiveness. Let no one make light of your authority. 15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
