Titus - Chapter 2 | King James Version (KJV)

  • 1. But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
  • 2. That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
  • 3. The aged women likewise, that {cf15I they be} in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
  • 4. That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
  • 5. {cf15I To be} discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
  • 6. Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
  • 7. In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine {cf15I shewing} uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
  • 8. Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
  • 9. {cf15I Exhort} servants to be obedient unto their own masters, {cf15I and} to please {cf15I them} well in all {cf15I things}; not answering again;
  • 10. Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
  • 11. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
  • 12. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
  • 13. Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
  • 14. Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
  • 15. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
