2 aOlder men are to be btemperate, dignified, sensible, csound din faith, in love, in 1perseverance.
3 Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, anot malicious gossips nor benslaved to much wine, teaching what is good,
4 so that they may 1encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 to be sensible, pure, aworkers at home, kind, being bsubject to their own husbands, cso that the word of God will not be dishonored.
6 Likewise urge athe young men to be 1sensible;

14 who agave Himself for us bto redeem us from every lawless deed, and to cpurify for Himself a dpeople for His own possession, ezealous for good deeds.

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
