2:12 It trains us 6  to reject godless ways 7  and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,

1 tn Or “sensible.”

2 sn Temperate…in endurance. See the same cluster of virtues in 1 Thess 1:3 and 1 Cor 13:13.

3 tn Grk “that they may train” (continuing the sentence of 2:3).

4 tn This verb, σωφρονίζω (swfronizw), denotes teaching in the sense of bringing people to their senses, showing what sound thinking is.

5 tn Or “sensible.”

6 tn Grk “training us” (as a continuation of the previous clause). Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started at the beginning of v. 12 by translating the participle παιδεύουσα (paideuousa) as a finite verb and supplying the pronoun “it” as subject.

7 tn Grk “ungodliness.”
