3 Bid the older women likewise to be reverent in behavior, not to be slanderers or slaves to drink; they are to teach what is good, 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 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, 4 Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children,
5 to be sensible, chaste, domestic, kind, and submissive to their husbands, that the word of God may not be discredited. 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 Likewise urge the younger men to control themselves. 6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled.
7 Show yourself in all respects a model of good deeds, and in your teaching show integrity, gravity, 7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness
8 and sound speech that cannot be censured, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say of 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 Bid slaves to be submissive to their masters and to give satisfaction in every respect; they are not to be refractory, 9 Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them,
10 nor to pilfer, but to show entire and true fidelity, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior. 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.
