14 He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a special people, eager to do good works. 14 He gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a people for His own possession, eager to do good works.

Titus 2:2
(ESV) “ Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness.”

(TNIV) “Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.”

(NLT) “Teach the older men to exercise self-control, to be worthy of respect, and to live wisely. They must have sound faith and be filled with love and patience.”

Titus 2:5 (HCSB – notice the change from "good homemakers" to "homemakers, kind". Also a interesting change from "sensible" to "self-controlled" in vs. 5 and 6.)
(ESV) “to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.”

(TNIV) “to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”

(NLT) “to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God.”

Titus 2:6
(ESV) “Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled.”

(TNIV) “Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled.”

(NLT) “In the same way, encourage the young men to live wisely.”

Titus 2:14
(ESV) “who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.”

(TNIV) “who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.”

(NLT) “He gave his life to free us from every kind of sin, to cleanse us, and to make us his very own people, totally committed to doing good deeds.”

(NET) “He gave himself for us to set us free from every kind of lawlessness and to purify for himself a people who are truly his, who are eager to do good.”

ESVSB Note: A people for his own possession translates an unusual phrase (Gk. laon periousion) with intentional echoes from the OT (see esp. Ex. 19:5; Mal. 3:17). It has the sense of “prized, treasured possession.” These people are to be zealous for good works, so again redemption is tied specifically to living in a godly manner. There is no room for claiming to be redeemed while providing no evidence of practical transformation (see James 2:14–26).

NET Note: Or “a people who are his very own.”

NLTSB Note: The phrase his very own people recalls the formation of Israel as a nation (see Exod 19:5; Deut 7:6; 14:2). Those who follow Christ are now God’s people—his nation—and the Spirit leads them to keep God’s covenant.
