12Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.
13Until I arrive, give attention to the public reading of scripture,* to exhorting, to teaching.
14Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you through prophecy with the laying on of hands by the council of elders.*
15Put these things into practice, devote yourself to them, so that all may see your progress.
16Pay close attention to yourself and to your teaching; continue in these things, for in doing this you will save both yourself and your hearers.
