2 But you are to proclaim things consistent with sound teaching.af 2 Older menag are to be self-controlled, worthy of respect, sensible, and sound in faith, love,ah and endurance. 3 In the same way, older womenai are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers, not slaves to excessive drinking. They are to teach what is good, 4 so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands and to love their children, 5 to be self-controlled, pure, workers at home, kind, and in submissionaj to their husbands, so that God’s wordak will not be slandered.
6 In the same way, encourage the young menal to be self-controlled 7 in everything. Make yourself an example of good works with integrity and dignityD in your teaching. 8 Your message is to be sound beyond reproach,am so that any opponent will be ashamed, because he doesn’t have anything bad to say about us.
9 Slaves are to submit to their mastersan in everything, and to be well-pleasing,ao not talking back 10 or stealing, but demonstrating utter faithfulness, so that they may adorn the teaching of God our Saviorap in everything.
11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvationE for all people,aq 12 instructing us to deny godlessnessar and worldly lustsas and to live in a sensible, righteous,at and godlyau way in the present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope,av the appearing of the gloryaw of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. 14 He gave himself for usax to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for himself a people for his own possession,ay eager to do good works.
15 Proclaim these things; encourage and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregardA you.
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
