Titus 1:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 namely, 1if any man is above reproach, the 2husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of 3dissipation or 4rebellion. 7 For the a5overseer must be above reproach as 6God's steward, not 7self-willed, not quick-tempered, not 8addicted to wine, not pugnacious, 9not fond of sordid gain, 8 but 10hospitable, 11loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled, 9 12holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in 13sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict. 10 14For there are many 15rebellious men, 16empty talkers and deceivers, especially 17those of the circumcision, 11 who must be silenced because they are upsetting 18whole families, teaching 19things they should not teach 20for the sake of sordid gain. 12 One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, "21Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons." 13 This testimony is true. For this reason 22reprove them 23severely so that they may be 24sound in the faith, 14 not paying attention to Jewish 25myths and 26commandments of men who 27turn away from the truth. 15 28To the pure, all things are pure; but 29to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their 30mind and their conscience are defiled. 16 31They profess to know God, but by their deeds they 32deny Him, being 33detestable and 34disobedient and 35worthless 36for any good deed.
