Titus - Chapter 1

1Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of the choice ones of God, and an acknowledging of truth that `is' according to piety,2upon hope of life age-during, which God, who doth not lie, did promise before times of ages,3(and He manifested in proper times His word,) in preaching, which I was entrusted with, according to a charge of God our Saviour,4to Titus -- true child according to a common faith: Grace, kindness, peace, from God the Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour!5For this cause left I thee in Crete, that the things lacking thou mayest arrange, and mayest set down in every city elders, as I did appoint to thee;6if any one is blameless, of one wife a husband, having children stedfast, not under accusation of riotous living or insubordinate --7for it behoveth the overseer to be blameless, as God's steward, not self-pleased, nor irascible, not given to wine, not a striker, not given to filthy lucre;8but a lover of strangers, a lover of good men, sober-minded, righteous, kind, self-controlled,9holding -- according to the teaching -- to the stedfast word, that he may be able also to exhort in the sound teaching, and the gainsayers to convict;10for there are many both insubordinate, vain-talkers, and mind-deceivers -- especially they of the circumcision --11whose mouth it behoveth to stop, who whole households do overturn, teaching what things it behoveth not, for filthy lucre's sake.12A certain one of them, a prophet of their own, said -- `Cretans! always liars, evil beasts, lazy bellies!'13this testimony is true; for which cause convict them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith,14not giving heed to Jewish fables and commands of men, turning themselves away from the truth;15all things, indeed, `are' pure to the pure, and to the defiled and unstedfast `is' nothing pure, but of them defiled `are' even the mind and the conscience;16God they profess to know, and in the works they deny `Him', being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work disapproved.
