I remind you be submissive,
To rulers and authorities;
Obedient and permissive,
Think as you set priorities.
 
Be ready in doing good deeds,
And speaking evil to no one;
Show courtesy to other needs,
Willingness what needs to be done.
 
For we ourselves once foolish,
Defiant being led astray;
Slave to passion feeling coolish,
Loving envy to disobey.
 
But goodness and loving kindness,
Of God our Savior appeared;
Causes a spiritual blindness,
That the triune God we revered.
 
He saved us but not by works done,
Rather through the mercy and grace;
Regeneration through the Son,
Upon meeting Him face to face.
 
For God poured out richly through Christ,
By His grace being justified;
Assisting for to be enticed,
To the cross and the crucified.
 
I want to insist on these things,
So that anyone who believes;
Careful to devote what God brings,
For the salvation one receives.
 
Avoid foolish controversies,
Any quarrels about the Law;
Rivals of genealogies,
Acts that would be causing a flaw.
 
A heretic stirs division,
After admonitions rejects;
Coming from a bad decision,
Having nothing more that reflects.
 
Knowing that such of a person,
Subverted and warped into sin;
Self-condemned that can even worsen,
The corruption from deep within.
