You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine.1
Teach the older men2 to be temperate,3 worthy of respect, self-controlled,4 and sound in faith,5 in love and in endurance.
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers6 or addicted to much wine,7 but to teach what is good.
