We wait for the blessed hope of the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
Teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.
We wait for the blessed hope — the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
