|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
3 Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness.
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.
