Titus   chapter 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
      after godliness;
       2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot
      lie, promised before the world began;
       3 But hath in due times manifested his word
      through preaching, which is committed unto me
      according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
       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.
       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:
       6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife,
      having faithful children not accused of riot or
       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;
       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 by sound doctrine both
      to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
      10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and
      deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
      11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole
      houses, teaching things which they ought not, for
      filthy lucre's sake.
      12 One 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
      commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
      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
      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 2
