Modern Literal Version
2:1 But as for you, speak the things which are suitable to the sound teaching. 2:2Teach elderly-men to be temperate, honorable, sensible, sound in the faith, in love*, in endurance.
2:3 Likewise*, teach elderly-women to be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers, not having been enslaved to much wine, but teachers of what is good, 2:4 in order that they may train the young women to be lovers of their husbands, to love their children, 2:5and to be sensible, pure, homemakers, and kind, being subject to their own husbands, in order that the word of God may not be blasphemed. 2:6 Likewise* encourage the younger-men to be sensible, 2:7 providing yourself as an example of good works concerning all things; in the teaching have integrity, honesty, incorruption, 2:8 sound speech which is not condemnable; in order that the adverse onemight be embarrassed, having no evil thing to say concerning us.
2:9Encourage bondservants to subject themselves to their own masters and be well pleasing to them in all things, not contradicting them; 2:10 not pilfering things, but showing all good faithfulness; in order that they may adorn the teaching of God our Savior in all things. 2:11 For*the grace of God has appeared, which is salvation to all men, 2:12 educating us in order that we should live with self-discipline and righteously and devoutly in this current age, after having denied ungodliness and worldly lusts; 2:13 waiting for the blessed* hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; 2:14 who gave himself on our behalf, in order that he might redeem us away from all lawlessness and might cleanse a treasured people for himself, zealous of good works. 2:15 Speak and encourage and reprove these things with every commandment. Let no one despise you.
