Papyrus 32 is from 200 A.D.- legible on front to back. This is Paul's Letter to Titus Chapters 1 and 2.
You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. 2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good.
4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 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.
6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. 7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness 8 and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
9 Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them, 10 and not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.
11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.
12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 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.
15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
This is very, very sound doctrine.
Temperate - not prone to outbursts of anger or self.
Worthy of respect. Pure.
Sound in faith.
Reverent to God.
Not too much wine.
Love Husbands and Children.
Be Busy at Home.
Do not Malign the Word of God.
Soundness of Speech
Be able to be trusted.
Making God Attractive.
Because: Salvation from God is for All People.
The part that is a little surprising is teach, encourage and rebuke with authority.
Let now one despise you.
This indicates a "Love One's Self" manner we all need. Letting our self esteem come from God.
The Song "He Knows My Name" by Francesca Battistelli - the lyrics were written specifically because so many people have opinions of each of us.

Then we have the fruit of the Holy Spirit telling us - we are Saved by God in Jesus Christ.
Special, Loved, Chosen by Father God Lord God Almighty. Who knows us completely.
