Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1But speak what is fitting for sound teaching. 2And teach that Elders would be watchful in their minds, modest, pure, sound in faith, in love and in patience,
3And the elder women, in this way also, to be fitting in appearance for the worship of God and not to be slanderers, neither subservient to much wine, and to be teachers of excellence. 4And chasten those who are young women to love their husbands* and their children*, 5And to be chaste and holy, taking good care of their households and obeying their husbands, lest anyone blaspheme the word of God.
6And in this way beseech those who are young men to be serious. 7But show yourself in all things as a model in all good works, and in your teaching let your speech be wholesome, 8Serious, uncorrupted*, and let no man despise it, so that he who opposes us may be ashamed, as he will be unable to say anything disgraceful against us.
9Let Servants be subject to their Masters in all things and be pleasing, and let them not resist; 10Neither let them steal, but in all things let them show their good loyalty, to adorn the doctrine of God Our Lifegiver in all things.
11For the all saving* grace of God has been revealed to all men, 12And it leads us to reject wickedness and the lusts of the world and to live in this world in purity, in righteousness, and in the worship of God, 13While we look for the blessed hope and the revelation of the glory of The Great God and Our Lifegiver, Yeshua The Messiah, 14Who gave himself in our place to redeem us from all evil and to purify a new* people for himself, which is zealous of good works.
15Speak these things; beseech and rebuke with all authority, and no man should despise you.
