But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
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:
If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
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 .
This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again ;
Not purloining , but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly , righteously, and godly, in this present world;
For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived , serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
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;
All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen. [It was written to Titus, ordained the first bishop of the church of the Cretians, from Nicopolis of Macedonia.]
