The Epistle of Paul to Titus
1 – But speak thou the things that become sound doctrine:
2 – That the aged men be sober, chaste, prudent, sound in faith, in love, in patience.
3 – The aged women, in like manner, in holy attire, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teaching well:
4 – That they may teach the young women to be wise, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 – To be discreet, chaste, sober, having a care of the house, gentle, obedient to their husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
6 – Young men, in like manner, exhort that they be sober.
7 – In all things shew thyself an example of good works, in doctrine, in integrity, in gravity,
8 – The sound word that can not be blamed: that he, who is on the contrary part, may be afraid, having no evil to say of us.
9 – Exhort servants to be obedient to their masters, in all things pleasing, not gainsaying:
10 – Not defrauding, but in all things shewing good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things:
11 – For the grace of God our Savior hath appeared to all men;
12 – Instructing us, that, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, and justly, and godly in this world,
13 – Looking for the blessed hope and coming of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ,
14 – Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and might cleanse to himself a people acceptable, a pursuer of good works.
15 – These things speak, and exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
