Titus 1:7-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
7 For the a1overseer must be above reproach as 2God's steward, not 3self-willed, not quick-tempered, not 4addicted to wine, not pugnacious, 5not fond of sordid gain, 8 but 6hospitable, 7loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled, 9 8holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in 9sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict. 10 10For there are many 11rebellious men, 12empty talkers and deceivers, especially 13those of the circumcision, 11 who must be silenced because they are upsetting 14whole families, teaching 15things they should not teach 16for the sake of sordid gain. 12 One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, "17Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons." 13 This testimony is true. For this reason 18reprove them 19severely so that they may be 20sound in the faith, 14 not paying attention to Jewish 21myths and 22commandments of men who 23turn away from the truth. 15 24To the pure, all things are pure; but 25to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their 26mind and their conscience are defiled. 16 27They profess to know God, but by their deeds they 28deny Him, being 29detestable and 30disobedient and 31worthless 32for any good deed.
