The Book of Titus

Chapter 1

Tit 1:1 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ (according to the faith of God’s elect, in the acknowledging of the truth which is according to godliness
Tit 1:2 on hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the eternal times,
Tit 1:3 but revealed His Word in its own times in a proclamation, with which I was entrusted by the command of God our Savior,)
Tit 1:4 to Titus, a true child according to our common faith. Grace mercy and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.
Tit 1:5 For this cause I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed you,
Tit 1:6 if anyone is blameless, husband of one wife, having believing children, not accused of loose behavior, or disobedient.
Tit 1:7 For an overseer must be blameless, as a steward of God, not self-willed, not full of passion, not given to wine, not quarrelsome, not greedy for ill gain;
Tit 1:8 but hospitable, a lover of good, discreet, just, holy, temperate,
Tit 1:9 holding fast the faithful Word according to the doctrine, that he may be able, by sound doctrine, both to exhort and to convict the gainsayers.
Tit 1:10 For there are indeed many unruly men, vain talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision,
Tit 1:11 whose mouth you must stop, who subvert whole houses, teaching things not right for the sake of ill gain.
Tit 1:12 One of them, a prophet of their own, said, Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.
Tit 1:13 This witness is true; for which cause convict them sharply, so that they may be sound in the faith,
Tit 1:14 not giving heed to Jewish myths and commandments of men, turning away from the truth.
Tit 1:15 To the pure all things are pure. But to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
Tit 1:16 They profess that they know God, but in their works they deny Him, being abominable and disobedient and reprobate to every good work.

Chapter 2

Tit 2:1 But you speak the things which become sound doctrine:
Tit 2:2 aged men to be temperate, sensible, discreet, sound in faith, in love, in patience.
Tit 2:3 Let the aged women likewise be in reverent behavior, not slanderers, not enslaved by much wine, teachers of good;
Tit 2:4 that they may train the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,
Tit 2:5 to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, subject to their own husbands, that the Word of God may not be blasphemed.
Tit 2:6 Likewise exhort the young men to be discreet;
Tit 2:7 In all things having shown yourself a pattern of good works: in the doctrine, purity, sensibleness, without corruption,
Tit 2:8 in sound speech that cannot be condemned, that he who is opposed may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
Tit 2:9 Slaves are to be obedient to their masters, to please them well in all things, not talking against,
Tit 2:10 not stealing, but showing all good faith, so that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.
Tit 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
Tit 2:12 teaching us that having denied ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live discreetly, righteously and godly, in this present world,
Tit 2:13 looking for the blessed hope, and the appearance of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
Tit 2:14 who gave Himself for us that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify to Himself a special people, zealous of good works.
Tit 2:15 Speak these things, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.

Chapter 3

Tit 3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to every good work,
Tit 3:2 to speak evil of no one, not being quarrelsome, but forbearing, showing all meekness to all men.
Tit 3:3 For we ourselves also were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, slaving for various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another.
Tit 3:4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared,
Tit 3:5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
Tit 3:6 whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
Tit 3:7 that being justified by His grace, we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Tit 3:8 Faithful is the Word, and as to these things, I desire that you strongly affirm that those believing God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men.
Tit 3:9 But avoid foolish questions and genealogies and contentions, and strivings about the Law, for they are unprofitable and vain.
Tit 3:10 After the first and second warning, reject a man of heresy,
Tit 3:11 knowing that he who is such has been perverted, and sins, being self-condemned.
Tit 3:12 When I send Artemas to you, or Tychicus, hasten to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have determined to winter there.
Tit 3:13 Diligently set forward Zenas the lawyer, and Apollos, that nothing may be lacking to them.
Tit 3:14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, so that they may not be unfruitful.
Tit 3:15 All those with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith. May grace be with you all. Amen.
