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:
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;
That they may teach the young women to be sober , to love their husbands, to love their children,
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.
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;
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
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.
Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them.
