||New International Version (NIV)
5 The reason I left you in Crete was so that you might attend to the matters still not in order and appoint congregation leaders in each city-those were my instructions.
5 The reason I left you in Crete was that you might straighten out what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you.
