1 Directions giuen vnto Titus both for his doctrine and life. 9 Of the duetie of seruants, and in generall of all Christians.
1But speake thou the things which become sound doctrine:
2That the aged men be sober, graue, temperate, sound in faith, in charitie, in patience.2
3The aged women likewise that they be in behauiour as becommeth holinesse, not false accusers, not giuen to much wine, teachers of good things,3
4That they may teach the young women to bee sober, to loue their husbands, to loue their children,4
5To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God bee not blasphemed.
6Yong men likewise exhort, to bee sober minded.6
7In all things shewing thy selfe a patterne of good workes: in doctrine shewing vncorruptnesse, grauity, sinceritie,
8Sound speech that cannot be condemned, that hee that is of the contrarie part, may bee ashamed, hauing no euill thing to say of you.
9Exhort seruants to be obedient vnto their own masters, and to please them well in all things, not answering againe:9
10Not purloyning, but shewing all good fidelitie, that they may adorne the doctrine of God our Sauiour in all things.
11For the grace of God that bringeth saluatiō, hath appeared to all men,11
12Teaching vs that denying vngodlinesse and worldly lusts we should liue soberly, righteously and godly in this present world,
13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God, and our Sauiour Iesus Christ,
14Who gaue himselfe for vs, that he might redeeme vs from all iniquitie, and purifie vnto himselfe a peculiar people, zealous of good workes.
15These things speake and exhort, and rebuke with all authoritie. Let no man despise thee.
