But as for you, speak the things which are fitting for sound doctrine. (Titus 2:1)

Older men are to be temperate, dignified, sensible, sound in faith, in love, in perseverance. (Titus 2:2)

Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, (Titus 2:3)

so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, (Titus 2:4)

to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored. (Titus 2:5)

Likewise urge the young men to be sensible; (Titus 2:6)

in all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified, (Titus 2:7)

sound in speech which is beyond reproach, so that the opponent will be put to shame, having nothing bad to say about us. (Titus 2:8)

Urge bondslaves to be subject to their own masters in everything, to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, (Titus 2:9)

not pilfering, but showing all good faith so that they will adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in every respect. (Titus 2:10)

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, (Titus 2:11)

instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, (Titus 2:12)

looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, (Titus 2:13)

who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. (Titus 2:14)

These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you. (Titus 2:15)
