IV. Bringing the Saints of Different Ages
into an Orderly Life
1 But you, speak the things which are fitting to the 1ahealthy teaching.
2 Exhort aolder men to be 1btemperate, 2cgrave, 3of a dsober mind, 4ehealthy in ffaith, in love, in gendurance;
3 aOlder women likewise to be in 1demeanor as bbefits those who engage in 2sacred things, 3not cslanderers, nor 4denslaved by much wine, 5teachers of what is egood,
4 That they may 1train the young women 2to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be of a asober mind, bpure, workers at chome, 1good, dsubject to their own husbands, that the 2eword of God would not be 3blasphemed.
6 The ayounger men likewise exhort to be of a bsober mind,
7 Concerning all things 1presenting yourself as a apattern of good works: in your teaching showing incorruption, 2bgravity,
8 aHealthy speech that cannot be 1condemned, that 2he who bopposes may be put to cshame, having 3nothing evil to say about us.
