Titus - Chapter 2 | English Standard Version

  • 1. But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.
  • 2. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.
  • 3. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good,
  • 4. and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,
  • 5. to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.
  • 6. Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled.
  • 7. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity,
  • 8. and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.
  • 9. Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are to be well-pleasing, not argumentative,
  • 10. not pilfering, but showing all good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.
  • 11. For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people,
  • 12. training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,
  • 13. waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
  • 14. who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
  • 15. Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.
