Titus 1:1
Paul, a servant of God, *19:93*21:26 and an apostle of Jesus, the Messiah, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;

Titus 1:2
In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

Titus 1:3
But has in due times manifested His word through preaching, which is committed to me according to the commandment of God our Savior;

Titus 1:4
To Titus, [my] own son after the common faith, "Grace, mercy, [and] peace, from God the Father and the master Jesus, the Messiah, our savior.

Titus 1:5
For this cause I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed you.

Titus 1:6
If any are blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

Titus 1:7
For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, not a striker, not given to filthy lucre;

Titus 1:8
But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

Titus 1:9
Holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

Titus 1:10
For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially those of the circumcision.

Titus 1:11
Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they must not, for filthy lucre's sake.

Titus 1:12
One of themselves, [even] a prophet of their own, said, 'The Cretians [are] always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.'

Titus 1:13
This witness is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

Titus 1:14
Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

Titus 1:15
To the pure all things [are] pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving [is] nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

Titus 1:16
They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [Him], being abominable, and disobedient, and to every good work reprobate.

Titus 2:1
But speak the things which become sound doctrine.

Titus 2:2
That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

Titus 2:3
The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behavior as becoming holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

Titus 2:4
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

Titus 2:5
[To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God is not blasphemed.

Titus 2:6
Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.

Titus 2:7
In all things showing yourself a pattern of good works, in doctrine [showing] uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,

Titus 2:8
Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he who is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.

Titus 2:9
[Exhort] servants to be obedient to their own masters, [and] to please [them] well in all [things]; not answering again;

Titus 2:10
Not purloining, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.

Titus 2:11
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,

Titus 2:12
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and Godly, in this present world;

Titus 2:13
Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our savior Jesus the Messiah;

Titus 2:14
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify to himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Titus 2:15
These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise you.

Titus 3:1
Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

Titus 3:2
To speak evil of no man, to not be brawlers, [but] gentle, showing all meekness to all men.

Titus 3:3
For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, [and] hating one another.

Titus 3:4
But after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared,

Titus 3:5
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit;

Titus 3:6
Which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus, the Messiah, our savior;

Titus 3:7
That being justified by His grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Titus 3:8
[This is] a faithful saying, and these things I will that you affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men.

Titus 3:9
But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

Titus 3:10
A man who is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, reject;

Titus 3:11
Knowing that he who is such is subverted, and sins, being condemned of himself.

Titus 3:12
When I will send Artemas to you, or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me to Nicopolis, for I have determined to winter there.

Titus 3:13
Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing is lacking to them.

Titus 3:14
And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they are not unfruitful.

Titus 3:15
All who are with me salute you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace [be] with you all. Amen." {[It was written to Titus, ordained the first bishop of the church of the Cretians, from Nicopolis of Macedonia.]}
