IV. Bringing the Saints of Different Ages
into an Orderly Life
- But you, speak the things which are fitting to the healthy teaching.
- Exhort older men to be temperate, grave, of a sober mind, healthy in faith, in love, in endurance;
- Older women likewise to be in demeanor as befits those who engage in sacred things, not slanderers, nor enslaved by much wine, teachers of what is good,
- That they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
- To be of a sober mind, pure, workers at home, good, subject to their own husbands, that the word of God would not be blasphemed.
- The younger men likewise exhort to be of a sober mind,
- Concerning all things presenting yourself as a pattern of good works: in your teaching showing incorruption, gravity,
- Healthy speech that cannot be condemned, that he who opposes may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.
in the Social System of Slavery
- Exhort slaves to be subject to their own masters in all things, to be well pleasing, not contradicting,
- Not pilfering, but showing all good faithfulness that they may adorn the teaching of our Savior God in all things.
- For the grace of God, bringing salvation to all men, has appeared,
- Training us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in the present age,
- Awaiting the blessed hope, even the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
- Who gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all lawlessness and purify to Himself a particular people as His unique possession, zealous of good works.
- These things speak, and exhort and convict with all authority. Let no one despise you.
