The Epistle of Paul to Titus
AUL, 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
1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie,
promised before the world began;
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;
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.
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:
1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having
faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
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;
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 unruly and vain talkers and
deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole
houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy
1:12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their
own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts,
1:13 This witness 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 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.
1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they
deny him being abominable, and disobedient, and unto
every good work reprobate.
[ Titus: Chapter 1:
| Verses: 16 | Words: 337 ]
UT speak thou the things which
become sound doctrine:
2:2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound
in faith, in charity, in patience.
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;
2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to
love their husbands, to love their children,
2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home,
good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be
2:6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
2:7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good
works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity,
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.
2:9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own
masters, and to please them well in all
things not answering again;
2:10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that
they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all
2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath
appeared to all men,
2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly
lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this
2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious
appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
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.
2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all
authority. Let no man despise thee.
[ Titus: Chapter 2:
| Verses: 15 | Words: 265 ]
UT them in mind to be subject to
principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to
every good work,
3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers,
but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
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
3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our
Saviour toward man appeared,
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;
3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ
3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made
heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
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.
3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and
contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are
unprofitable and vain.
3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and
second admonition reject;
3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and
sinneth, being condemned of himself.
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.
3:13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey
diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them.
3:14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for
necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
3:15 All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that
love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
