2 Timothy The King James Bible Titus
by [[Author:|]]

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 acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;<section end="1:1"/>

2 <section begin="1:2"/>In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;<section end="1:2"/>

3 <section begin="1:3"/>But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;<section end="1:3"/>

4 <section begin="1:4"/>To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ 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 are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:<section end="1:5"/>

6 <section begin="1:6"/>If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.<section end="1:6"/>

7 <section begin="1:7"/>For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;<section end="1:7"/>

8 <section begin="1:8"/>But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;<section end="1:8"/>

9 <section begin="1:9"/>Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.<section end="1:9"/>

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

11 <section begin="1:11"/>Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert 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, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.<section end="1:12"/>

13 <section begin="1:13"/>This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke 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, that turn from the truth.<section end="1:14"/>

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

16 <section begin="1:16"/>They profess that they know God; but in 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 become sound doctrine:<section end="2:1"/>

2 <section begin="2:2"/>That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.<section end="2:2"/>

3 <section begin="2:3"/>The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;<section end="2:3"/>

4 <section begin="2:4"/>That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,<section end="2:4"/>

5 <section begin="2:5"/>To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.<section end="2:5"/>

6 <section begin="2:6"/>Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.<section end="2:6"/>

7 <section begin="2:7"/>In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,<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 you.<section end="2:8"/>

9 <section begin="2:9"/>Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;<section end="2:9"/>

10 <section begin="2:10"/>Not purloining, but shewing 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 that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,<section end="2:11"/>

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

13 <section begin="2:13"/>Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing 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 peculiar people, zealous of good works.<section end="2:14"/>

15 <section begin="2:15"/>These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke 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 subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,<section end="3:1"/>

2 <section begin="3:2"/>To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.<section end="3:2"/>

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

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

5 <section begin="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 Ghost;<section end="3:5"/>

6 <section begin="3:6"/>Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;<section end="3:6"/>

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

8 <section begin="3:8"/>This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.<section end="3:8"/>

9 <section begin="3:9"/>But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.<section end="3:9"/>

10 <section begin="3:10"/>A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;<section end="3:10"/>

11 <section begin="3:11"/>Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.<section end="3:11"/>

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

13 <section begin="3:13"/>Bring 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 ours 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. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
