|Good News Translation (GNT)
||New International Version (NIV)
5 I left you in Crete, so that you could put in order the things that still needed doing and appoint church elders in every town. Remember 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.
