II.  But do thou speak the things which become the sound teaching;

2that aged men be sober, grave, discreet, sound in the faith, in love, in patience;

3that aged women likewise be in behavior as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not enslaved to much wine, teachers of that which is good;

4that they may teach the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,

5to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

6The younger men likewise exhort to be sober-minded.

7In all things showing thyself a pattern of good works; in teaching, showing uncorruptness, gravity,

8sound speech, that can not be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be put to shame, having no evil thing to say of us.

9Exhort servants to submit themselves to their own masters, to be well-pleasing in all things; not contradicting,

10not purloining, but showing all good faith; that they may adorn the teaching of our Savior God in all things,

11For the saving grace of God appeared to all men,

12teaching us that, having denied ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

13looking for the blissful hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;

14who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and cleanse for himself a people to be his own, zealous of good works.

15These things speak, and exhort, and reprove with all authority. Let no one despise thee.
