11 Command and teach (A)these things. 12 (B)Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers (C)an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching. 14 (D)Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you (E)by prophecy when the council of elders (F)laid their hands on you. 15 Practice these things, immerse yourself in them,[a] so that (G)all may see your progress. 16 (H)Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save (I)both yourself and (J)your hearers.
