2 That the a men be b, grave, c, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not a b, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

10 Not a, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may b the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
11 For the a of God b bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,

13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the a appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave a for us, that he might b us from all iniquity, and c unto himself a d, e of good works.
15 These things speak, and exhort, and a with all b. Let no man c thee.
