Titus 2 (asv)

Teach Sound Doctrine

2:1But speak thou the things which befit the sound doctrine: 2:2that aged men be temperate, grave, sober-minded, sound in faith, in love, in patience:

2:3that aged women likewise be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers nor enslaved to much wine, teachers of that which is good; 2:4that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,2:5to be sober-minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed:

2:6the younger men likewise exhort to be sober-minded: 2:7in all things showing thyself an ensample of good works; in thy doctrine showing uncorruptness, gravity, 2:8sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of us.

2:9Exhort servants to be in subjection to their own masters, and to be well-pleasing to them in all things; not gainsaying; 2:10not purloining, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

2:11For the grace of God hath appeared, bringing salvation to all men, 2:12instructing us, to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present world; 2:13looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 2:14who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a people for his own possession, zealous of good works.

2:15These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
