Titus 21But speak thou the things that are fitting for the sound doctrine. 2Aged men are to be sober, noble, serious minded, sound in faith, in love, in perseverance. 3Aged women likewise be reverent in behavior, not slanderous, not enslaved to much wine, teachers of what is good, 4so that they may admonish the young women to be sensible, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5to be serious-minded, pure, homemakers, good, submissive to their own husbands, so that the word of God may not be blasphemed. 6Likewise exhort the younger men to be sober-minded. 7Concerning all things presenting thyself a pattern of good works in the doctrine: incorruption, dignity, incorruptibility, 8sound speech, irreproachable, so that the man of opposition may be ashamed, having nothing bad to say about us. 9Bondmen are to be obedient to their own masters, to be well-pleasing in all things, not speaking contrary, 10not pilfering, but demonstrating all good fidelity, so that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things. 11For the saving grace of God has appeared to all men, 12disciplining us, so that, having denied irreverence and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and piously in the present age. 13Awaiting the blessed hope and appearance of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us, so that he might redeem us from all lawlessness, and purify to himself a special people, a zealot of good works. 15These things speak and exhort and rebuke with every command. Let no man disregard thee.
