Other instructions and directions for life and doctrine.

 1 Admonish them to be subject to princes and powers, to obey at a word, to be ready to every good work.
Admone illos principibus, et potestatibus subditos esse, dicto obedire, ad omne opus bonum paratos esse :

 2 To speak evil of no man, not to be litigious, but gentle: shewing all mildness towards all men.
neminem blasphemare, non litigiosos esse, sed modestos, omnem ostendentes mansuetudinem ad omnes homines.

 3 For we ourselves also were some time unwise, incredulous, erring, slaves to divers desires and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
Eramus enim aliquando et nos insipientes, increduli, errantes, servientes desideriis, et voluptatibus variis, in malitia et invidia agentes, odibiles, odientes invicem.

 4 But when the goodness and kindness of God our Saviour appeared:
Cum autem benignitas et humanitas apparuit Salvatoris nostri Dei,

 5 Not by the works of justice, which we have done, but according to his mercy, he saved us, by the laver of regeneration, and renovation of the Holy Ghost;
non ex operibus justitiae, quae fecimus nos, sed secundum suam misericordiam salvos nos fecit per lavacrum regenerationis et renovationis Spiritus Sancti,

 6 Whom he hath poured forth upon us abundantly, through Jesus Christ our Saviour:
quem effudit in nos abunde per Jesum Christum Salvatorem nostrum :

 7 That, being justified by his grace, we may be heirs, according to hope of life everlasting.
ut justificati gratia ipsius, haeredes simus secundum spem vitae aeternae.

 8 It is a faithful saying: and these things I will have thee affirm constantly: that they, who believe in God, may be careful to excel in good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
Fidelis sermo est : et de his volo te confirmare : ut curent bonis operibus praeesse qui credunt Deo. Haec sunt bona, et utilia hominibus.

 9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law. For they are unprofitable and vain.
Stultas autem quaestiones, et genealogias, et contentiones, et pugnas legis devita : sunt enim inutiles, et vanae.

 10 A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, avoid:
Haereticum hominem post unam et secundam correptionem devita :

 11 Knowing that he, that is such an one, is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned by his own judgment.
sciens quia subversus est, qui ejusmodi est, et delinquit, cum sit proprio judicio condemnatus.

 12 When I shall send to thee Artemas or Tychicus, make haste to come unto me to Nicopolis. For there I have determined to winter.
Cum misero ad te Artemam, aut Tychicum, festina ad me venire Nicopolim : ibi enim statui hiemare.

 13 Send forward Zenas, the lawyer, and Apollo, with care, that nothing be wanting to them.
Zenam legisperitum et Apollo sollicite praemitte, ut nihil illis desit.

 14 And let our men also learn to excel in good works for necessary uses: that they be not unfruitful.
Discant autem et nostri bonis operibus praeesse ad usus necessarios : ut non sint infructuosi.

 15 All that are with me salute thee: salute them that love us in the faith. The grace of God be with you all. Amen.
Salutant te qui mecum sunt omnes : saluta eos qui nos amant in fide. Gratia Dei cum omnibus vobis. Amen.
