Godly Living1 a Remind them b to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be c ready for every good deed, 2 to malign no one d to be peaceable e gentle f showing every consideration for all men. 3 g For we also once were foolish ourselves h disobedient i deceived j enslaved to k various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in l malice and m envy, hateful, hating one another. 4 But when the n kindness of o God our Savior and His love for mankind p appeared, 5 q He saved us, r not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but s according to His mercy, by the t washing of regeneration and u renewing by the Holy Spirit, 6 v whom He poured out upon us w richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by His grace we would be made x heirs ▼
▼ Or of eternal life according to hopeaccording to the hope of eternal life. 8 z This is a trustworthy statement; and concerning these things I aa want you to speak confidently, so that those who have ab believed God will be careful to ac engage in good deeds. These things are good and profitable for men. 9 But ad avoid ae foolish controversies and af genealogies and strife and ag disputes about the Law, for they are ah unprofitable and worthless. 10 ai Reject a aj factious man ak after a first and second warning, 11 knowing that such a man is al perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.
Personal Concerns12 When I send Artemas or am Tychicus to you, an make every effort to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to ao spend the winter there. 13 Diligently help Zenas the ap lawyer and aq Apollos on their way so that nothing is lacking for them. 14 ar Our people must also learn to as engage in good ▼
▼ Or occupationsdeeds to meet au pressing needs, so that they will not be av unfruitful. 15 aw All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us ax in the faith. ay Grace be with you all.
