1Remind all to be obedient and submissive to princes and governors, and to be ready for every good work, 2and not to speak evil against any man, and not to be quarrelsome; but to be meek, in every respect showing gentleness to all men. 3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, misled, and serving various lusts and passions, living in malice and envy, hated and also hating one another. 4But after the goodness and kindness of Elohim our Savior was manifested, 5not by works of tzedaka which we have done, but according to His mercy, He saved us by the washing of regeneration and renewing of The Ru’akh HaKodesh, 6which He shed on us abundantly, through Yeshua HaMashi’akh Moshi’einu, 7that being justified in His compassion, we should be made heirs to the hope of Khayei Olam. 8This is a true saying, and these things I want you constantly to affirm, so that those who trust in Elohim may be careful to do good works continually. These things are good and profitable to men.
9But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and the disputes and arguments of the Sofrim, for they are unprofitable and vain. 10After you have admonished the heretic once or twice, shun him, 11knowing that he who is such is corrupt; he sins and condemns himself. 12When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, endeavor to come to me at Nicopolis; for I have decided to winter there. 13See that Zenas, the Sofer, and Apollos are given a good farewell on their journey, that they lack nothing. 14And let our people be taught to do good works in times of emergency, that they be not unfruitful. 15All who are with me salute you. Greet those who love us in HaEmunah. Compassion be with you all. Amein.
