Titus 1

1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and athe acknowledging of the truth bwhich is after godliness; 2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before cthe world began; 3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me daccording to the commandment of God our Saviour; 4 To eTitus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.

5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest fset in order the things that are wanting, and gordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: 6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. 7 For a bishop must be blameless, as ithe steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, hnot given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; 8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; 9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able jby sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. 10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, kspecially they of the circumcision: 11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert lwhole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. 12 mOne of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. 13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; 14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and ncommandments of men, that turn from the truth. 15 oUnto 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. 16 pThey profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
