This is why I left you in Crete, that you might amend what was defective, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you,
if any man is blameless, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of being profligate or insubordinate.
For a bishop, as God's steward, must be blameless; he must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain,
but hospitable, a lover of goodness, master of himself, upright, holy, and self-controlled;
he must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it.
