1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
2:1 ¶ But do, thou, speak the things which become the healthful instruction:
2:2 That, aged men, be, sober, grave, sober-minded, healthy in their faith, love, endurance;
2:3 Aged women, in the same way, in deportment, as becometh sacred persons, not given to intrigue, nor yet, to much wine, enslaved, teachers of virtue,
2:4 That they may constrain the young women to be, lovers of their husbands, lovers of their children,
2:5 soberminded, chaste, workers at home, good, submitting themselves to their own husbands,that, the word of God, be not defamed;
2:6 The younger men, in the same way, exhort thou to be sober-minded:
2:7 In all things, shewing, thyself, an ensample of noble works,in thine instruction, uncorruptness, gravity,
2:8 healthful discourse that cannot be condemned, in order that, he that is of the contrary part, may relent, having nothing to say concerning us that is disparaging:
2:9 Servants, unto their own masters, to be submitting themselves in all things, to be, well-pleasing, not gainsaying,
2:10 not taking anything away, shewing, all good faith,that, the instruction which is of our Saviour God, they may adorn in all things.
2:11 ¶ For the favour of God, bringing salvation for all men, hath shone forth,
2:12 Putting us under disciplinein order that,denying ourselves of ungodliness and worldly covetings, in a soberminded and righteous and godly manner, we should live, in the present age,
2:13 Prepared to welcome the happy hope and forthshining of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Christ Jesus,
2:14 Who gave himself up in our behalf, that he might redeem us from all manner of lawlessness, and purify for himself a people as his own treasurezealous of noble works.
2:15 ¶ As to these things, be speaking and exhorting and reproving, with all manner of precept: let, no one, disregard thee!
