Book 56 Titus
56:001:001 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 after godliness;
56:001:002 In hope of eternal life which God that cannot lie promised
before the world began;
56:001:003 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching
which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God
56:001:004 To Titus mine own son after the common faith: Grace mercy
and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our
56:001:005 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:
56:001:006 If any be blameless the husband of one wife having faithful
children not accused of riot or unruly.
56:001:007 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;
56:001:008 But a lover of hospitality a lover of good men sober just
56:001:009 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught that he
may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince
56:001:010 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers
specially they of the circumcision:
56:001:011 Whose mouths must be stopped who subvert whole houses
teaching things which they ought not for filthy lucre's sake.
56:001:012 One of themselves even a prophet of their own said The
Cretians are alway liars evil beasts slow bellies.
56:001:013 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply that they
may be sound in the faith;
56:001:014 Not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men
that turn from the truth.
56:001:015 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.
56:001:016 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him
being abominable and disobedient and unto every good work
56:002:001 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
56:002:002 That the aged men be sober grave temperate sound in faith
in charity in patience.
56:002:003 The aged women likewise that they be in behaviour as becometh
holiness not false accusers not given to much wine teachers
of good things;
56:002:004 That they may teach the young women to be sober to love their
husbands to love their children
56:002:005 To be discreet chaste keepers at home good obedient to
their own husbands that the word of God be not blasphemed.
56:002:006 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
56:002:007 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in
doctrine shewing uncorruptness gravity sincerity
56:002:008 Sound speech that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the
contrary part may be ashamed having no evil thing to say of
56:002:009 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters and to
please them well in all things; not answering again;
56:002:010 Not purloining but shewing all good fidelity; that they may
adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
56:002:011 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to
56:002:012 Teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts we
should live soberly righteously and godly in this present
56:002:013 Looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of
the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
56:002:014 Who gave himself for us that he might redeem us from all
iniquity and purify unto himself a peculiar people zealous
of good works.
56:002:015 These things speak and exhort and rebuke with all authority.
Let no man despise thee.
56:003:001 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers
to obey magistrates to be ready to every good work
56:003:002 To speak evil of no man to be no brawlers but gentle
shewing all meekness unto all men.
56:003:003 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish disobedient
deceived serving divers lusts and pleasures living in malice
and envy hateful and hating one another.
56:003:004 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward
56:003:005 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;
56:003:006 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our
56:003:007 That being justified by his grace we should be made heirs
according to the hope of eternal life.
56:003:008 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.
56:003:009 But avoid foolish questions and genealogies and contentions
and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and
56:003:010 A man that is an heretick after the first and second
56:003:011 Knowing that he that is such is subverted and sinneth being
condemned of himself.
56:003:012 When I shall send Artemas unto thee or Tychicus be diligent
to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to
56:003:013 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey
diligently that nothing be wanting unto them.
56:003:014 And let our's also learn to maintain good works for necessary
uses that they be not unfruitful.
56:003:015 All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in
the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
