Submit to Authorities1 Remind them! [2to sovereignties 3and 4authorities 1to submit], to yield obedience, [2for 3every 5work 4good 1to be prepared], 2 [2no one 1to 3blaspheme], to not be quarrelsome, but lenient, [2all 1demonstrating] gentleness to all men. 3 For we were at some time or other also ourselves unthinking, resisting persuasion, erring, being a slave to desires and [2satisfactions 1various], [2in 3evil 4and 5envy 1leading], odious, detesting one another. 4 And when the graciousness and the humane treatment appeared [2our deliverer 1of God], 5 not from works in righteousness which we did, but according to his mercy he delivered us, through the bath of regeneration and renewal [2spirit 1of holy], 6 which he poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our deliverer; 7 that having been justified by that favor, [2heirs 1we should be] according to a hope of life eternal.
Concerning Heresies8 Trustworthy is the word; and concerning these things I want you to positively assert, that [4should be thoughtful 6good 7works 5to be set over 1the ones 2trusting 3in God]. These are the good and beneficial things to men. 9 But moronish inquiries, and genealogies, and strifes, and [2battles 1legal] stand off from! for they are unprofitable and vain. 10 A heretical man, after one and a second admonition, refuse; 11 knowing that [2is distorted 1such a one] and sins, being self-condemned.
Paul's Final Greetings12 Whenever I should send forth Artemas to you, or Tychicus, hurry to come to me in Nicopolis! for there I have decided to pass the winter. 13 Zenas the legal expert and Apollos diligently send forward! that nothing to them should be missing. 14 [2let 6learn 1But 3also 4the ones of 5ours 8good 9works 7to be set over] for the important needs! that they should not be unfruitful. 15 [5greet 6you 2the ones 3with 4me 1All]. You greet the ones being fond of us in belief! Favor be with you all. Amen.
