Titus Chapter 2

New Testament / Epistle to Titus / Chapter 2

1-5 But as for you, speak the things which lead to sound doctrine: That the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, and in patience. Likewise, the older women, that they are reverent in behavior, as becomes holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, homemakers, good, and obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

6-8 Likewise, exhort the young men to be sober-minded. In all things showing yourself a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing incorruptibility, reverence, sincerity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, that he who is contrary to sound doctrine may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say about you.

9-10 Exhort servants to be obedient to their own masters and be well-pleasing to them in all things, not answering back, not pilfering but showing loyalty, that all may adorn the good doctrine of God our Savior in all things.

11-14 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world, looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity and purify for himself a special people, zealous for good works.

15 Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise you.
