2 You, however, keep on speaking what things are fitting for healthful+ teaching. 2 Let the aged men+ be moderate in habits, serious,+ sound in mind, healthy in faith,+ in love, in endurance.+ 3 Likewise let the aged women+ be reverent in behavior, not slanderous,+ neither enslaved to a lot of wine, teachers of what is good; 4 that they may recall the young women to their senses* to love their husbands,+ to love their children,+ 5 to be sound in mind, chaste,+ workers at home, good, subjecting+ themselves to their own husbands, so that the word of God may not be spoken of abusively.*+
6 Likewise keep on exhorting the younger men to be sound in mind,+ 7 in all things showing yourself an example of fine works;+ showing uncorruptness+ in your teaching,+ seriousness, 8 wholesome speech which cannot be condemned;+ so that the man on the opposing side may get ashamed, having nothing vile to say about us.+ 9 Let slaves+ be in subjection to their owners in all things,+ and please them well, not talking back,+ 10 not committing theft,*+ but exhibiting good fidelity to the full,+ so that they may adorn the teaching of our Savior,+ God, in all things.
11 For the undeserved kindness+ of God which brings salvation+ to all sorts of men+ has been manifested,+ 12 instructing us to repudiate ungodliness+ and worldly desires+ and to live with soundness of mind and righteousness and godly devotion*+ amid this present system of things,*+ 13 while we wait for the happy hope+ and glorious+ manifestation of the great God and of [the] Savior of us, Christ Jesus,* 14 who gave himself+ for us that he might deliver+ us from every sort of lawlessness and cleanse+ for himself a people peculiarly his own,+ zealous for fine works.+
