1 Paul, a servant a of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the sake of the faith of God's elect and the knowledge of the truth that is in accordance with godliness,
2 in the hope of eternal life that God, who never lies, promised before the ages began—
3 in due time he revealed his word through the proclamation with which I have been entrusted by the command of God our Savior,
4 To Titus, my loyal child in the faith we share: Grace b and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.
