|GOD'S WORD Translation (GW)
||New International Version (NIV)
5 I left you in Crete to do what still needed to be done--appointing spiritual leaders in every city as I directed you.
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.
