1 Remind them to subject themselves to principalities and authorities, to be obedient, to be prepared *for every good work, 2 to blaspheme no one, to not be quarrelsome, to be gentle, showing all meekness toward all men. 3 For* we were also previously foolish, disobedient, being misled, serving* in various lusts and sensual-delights, leading lives in malice and envy, spiteful, hating one another. 4 But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love of mankind had appeared: 5 he saved us (not from any works done in righteousness, which we practiced), but according to his mercy, through the full-washing of regeneration* and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 which he poured out upon us richly, through Jesus Christ our Savior; 7 in order that we might become heirs according to the hope of everlasting life, having been made righteous in that grace. 8 The faithful word is: and I will for you to confidently confirm concerning these things, in order that those who have believed God may be anxious to establish themselves first in good works. These things are good and profitable to men. 9 But avoid foolish debates and genealogies and strifes and quarrels about-law; for* they are unprofitable and futile. 10 Renounce a sectarian man after a first and second admonition; 11 knowing that such a one has been perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.
12 Whenever I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, be diligent to come to me in Nicopolis; for* I have decided to winter there. 13 Send Zenas, the professor of the law, and Apollos onward diligently in order that nothing may be deficient for them. 14 But let our people also learn to establish themselves foremost in good works *for the necessary needs, in order that they may not be unfruitful. 15 All who are with me greet you*. Greet those who love us in the faith.
Grace is with all of you*. Amen. {NOTES: Please read the Preface and other non-bible sections. * is our universal footnoting for words contained in the 'Definitions' section. These words are NOT the same Greek word as the non-asterisk form; i.e. *FOR is different from FOR* is different from FOR.}
