The Epistle of Paul to Titus

Chapter 1

1 <section begin="1:1"/>Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness, <section end="1:1"/>

2 <section begin="1:2"/>in hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before times eternal;<section end="1:2"/>

3 <section begin="1:3"/>but in his own seasons manifested his word in the message, wherewith I was intrusted according to the commandment of God our Saviour; <section end="1:3"/>

4 <section begin="1:4"/>to Titus, my true child after a common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Saviour. <section end="1:4"/>

5 <section begin="1:5"/>For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that were wanting, and appoint elders in every city, as I gave thee charge; <section end="1:5"/>

6 <section begin="1:6"/>if any man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having children that believe, who are not accused of riot or unruly. <section end="1:6"/>

7 <section begin="1:7"/>For the bishop must be blameless, as God's steward; not self-willed, not soon angry, no brawler, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre;<section end="1:7"/>

8 <section begin="1:8"/>but given to hospitality, as lover of good, sober-minded, just, holy, self-controlled; <section end="1:8"/>

9 <section begin="1:9"/>holding to the faithful word which is according to the teaching, that he may be able to exhort in the sound doctrine, and to convict the gainsayers.<section end="1:9"/>

10 <section begin="1:10"/>For there are many unruly men, vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision, <section end="1:10"/>

11 <section begin="1:11"/>whose mouths must be stopped; men who overthrow whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. <section end="1:11"/>

12 <section begin="1:12"/>One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, idle gluttons. <section end="1:12"/>

13 <section begin="1:13"/>This testimony is true. For which cause reprove them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, <section end="1:13"/>

14 <section begin="1:14"/>not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men who turn away from the truth. <section end="1:14"/>

15 <section begin="1:15"/>To the pure all things are pure: but to them that are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. <section end="1:15"/>

16 <section begin="1:16"/>They profess that they know God; but by their works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

<section end="1:16"/>

Chapter 2

1 <section begin="2:1"/>But speak thou the things which befit the sound doctrine: <section end="2:1"/>

2 <section begin="2:2"/>that aged men be temperate, grave, sober-minded, sound in faith, in love, in patience: <section end="2:2"/>

3 <section begin="2:3"/>that aged women likewise be reverent in demeanor, not slanderers nor enslaved to much wine, teachers of that which is good; <section end="2:3"/>

4 <section begin="2:4"/>that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, <section end="2:4"/>

5 <section begin="2:5"/>[to be] sober-minded, chaste, workers at home, kind, being in subjection to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed: <section end="2:5"/>

6 <section begin="2:6"/>the younger men likewise exhort to be sober-minded: <section end="2:6"/>

7 <section begin="2:7"/>in all things showing thyself an ensample of good works; in thy doctrine [showing] uncorruptness, gravity, <section end="2:7"/>

8 <section begin="2:8"/>sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of us. <section end="2:8"/>

9 <section begin="2:9"/>[Exhort] servants to be in subjection to their own masters, [and] to be well-pleasing [to them] in all things; not gainsaying; <section end="2:9"/>

10 <section begin="2:10"/>not purloining, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. <section end="2:10"/>

11 <section begin="2:11"/>For the grace of God hath appeared, bringing salvation to all men, <section end="2:11"/>

12 <section begin="2:12"/>instructing us, to the intent that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly and righteously and godly in this present world; <section end="2:12"/>

13 <section begin="2:13"/>looking for the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; <section end="2:13"/>

14 <section begin="2:14"/>who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a people for his own possession, zealous of good works. <section end="2:14"/>

15 <section begin="2:15"/>These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

<section end="2:15"/>

Chapter 3

1 <section begin="3:1"/>Put them in mind to be in subjection to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready unto every good work,<section end="3:1"/>

2 <section begin="3:2"/>to speak evil of no man, not to be contentious, to be gentle, showing all meekness toward all men. <section end="3:2"/>

3 <section begin="3:3"/>For we also once were foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. <section end="3:3"/>

4 <section begin="3:4"/>But when the kindness of God our Saviour, and his love toward man, appeared, <section end="3:4"/>

5 <section begin="3:5"/>not by works [done] in righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, <section end="3:5"/>

6 <section begin="3:6"/>which he poured out upon us richly, through Jesus Christ our Saviour; <section end="3:6"/>

7 <section begin="3:7"/>that, being justified by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. <section end="3:7"/>

8 <section begin="3:8"/>Faithful is the saying, and concerning these things I desire that thou affirm confidently, to the end that they who have believed God may be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men: <section end="3:8"/>

9 <section begin="3:9"/>but shun foolish questionings, and genealogies, and strifes, and fightings about law; for they are unprofitable and vain. <section end="3:9"/>

10 <section begin="3:10"/>A factious man after a first and second admonition refuse; <section end="3:10"/>

11 <section begin="3:11"/>knowing that such a one is perverted, and sinneth, being self-condemned. <section end="3:11"/>

12 <section begin="3:12"/>When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, give diligence to come unto me to Nicopolis: for there I have determined to winter. <section end="3:12"/>

13 <section begin="3:13"/>Set forward Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them. <section end="3:13"/>

14 <section begin="3:14"/>And let our [people] also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful. <section end="3:14"/>

15 <section begin="3:15"/>All that are with me salute thee. Salute them that love us in faith. Grace be with you all.

<section end="3:15"/>
