Titus 1

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 according to godliness;
1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised
 before the world began;
1:3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching,
 which is committed to me according to the commandment of God
 our Savior;
1:4 To Titus, [my] own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy,
 [and] peace, from God the Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ our
1:5 For this cause I left thee in Crete, that thou shouldst set
 in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in
 every city, as I had appointed thee:
1:6 If any is blameless, the husband of one wife, having
 faithful children, not accused of riot, or disorderly.
1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not
 self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not

1:8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober,
 just, holy, temperate;
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.
1:10 For there are many disorderly and vain talkers and
 deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses,

1:12 One of themselves, [even] a prophet of their own, said, The
 Cretians [are] always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
1:13 This testimony is true: wherefore rebuke them sharply, that
 they may be sound in the faith;
1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men
 that turn from the truth.
1:15 To the pure all things [are] pure: but to them that are

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