Titus 2:1-10

ESV 1 But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine. MSG 1 Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine. ESV 2 Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. MSG 2 Guide older men into lives of temperance, dignity, and wisdom, into healthy faith, love, and endurance. ESV 3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, MSG 3 Guide older women into lives of reverence so they end up as neither gossips nor drunks, but models of goodness. ESV 4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, MSG 4 By looking at them, the younger women will know how to love their husbands and children, ESV 5 to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. MSG 5 be virtuous and pure, keep a good house, be good wives. We don't want anyone looking down on God's Message because of their behavior. ESV 6 Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. MSG 6 Also, guide the young men to live disciplined lives. ESV 7 Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, MSG 7 But mostly, show them all this by doing it yourself, incorruptible in your teaching, ESV 8 and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us. MSG 8 your words solid and sane. Then anyone who is dead set against us, when he finds nothing weird or misguided, might eventually come around. ESV 9 Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, MSG 9 Guide slaves into being loyal workers, a bonus to their masters - no back talk, ESV 10 not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior. MSG 10 no petty thievery. Then their good character will shine through their actions, adding luster to the teaching of our Savior God.
