12 Let no one [a]despise your youth, but be an (A)example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, [b]in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to [c]doctrine. 14 (B)Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy (C)with the laying on of the hands of the eldership.
