12 One beynge of the selves which was a poyet of their awne sayde: The Cretayns are all wayes lyars evyll beastes and slowe belies. 12 Even one of their own prophets has said, "Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons."

In fact, both their minds and consciences are corrupted.
16 They confesse that they knowe god: but with the dedes they denye hym and are abhominable and disobedient and vnto all good workes discommendable. 16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.
