2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
2:2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in
faith, in charity, in patience;
2:3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behavior as
becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine,
teachers of good things;
2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love
their husbands, to love their children,
2:5 [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to
their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
2:6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober-minded.
2:7 In all things showing thyself a pattern of good works: in
doctrine [showing] incorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
2:8 Sound speech that cannot be condemned; that he that is of
the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say
2:9 [Exhort] servants to be obedient to their own masters, [and]
to please [them] well in all [things]; not answering again;
2:10 Not purloining, but showing all good fidelity; that they
may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.
2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared
to all men,
2:12 Teaching us, that denying ungodliness, and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly, righteously, and piously, in this
2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing
of the great God, and our Savior Jesus Christ;
2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all
iniquity, and purify to himself a peculiar people, zealous of
2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all
authority. Let no man despise thee.
