Old Testament

Titus 2
Encourage With Sound Doctrine
21But as for you, speak what is appropriate for sound doctrine. 2Encourage older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, love, and patient endurance.
3Likewise, encourage older women to be reverent in their behavior, not slanderers, not enslaved to much wine, but teachers of what is good, 4so that they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5to be self-controlled, pure, busy at home, kind, and submitting to their own husbands, that the word of God might not be slandered.
6Likewise, encourage younger men to be self-controlled. 7In all things show yourself to be an example of good works. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness, 8and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that the one who opposes us will be put to shame, because he has nothing bad to say about us.
9Encourage slaves to submit to their masters in everything, to be pleasing to them, not to be argumentative with them, 10not to steal from them, but to demonstrate their complete trustworthiness, so that they may show the teaching of God our Savior to be attractive in every way.
11For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people. 12It trains us to reject ungodliness and worldly lusts and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this present age, 13while we wait for the blessed hope, that is, the glorious appearance of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. 14He gave himself for us, to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are his own chosen people, eager to do good works.
15Keep telling people these things. Continue to encourage and rebuke with full authority. Let no one ignore you.
