New International Version

Titus 1:6-9

CJB 6 A leader must be blameless, husband to one wife, with believing children who do not have a reputation for being wild or rebellious. NIV 6 An elder must be blameless, faithful to his wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient. CJB 7 For an overseer, as someone entrusted with God's affairs, must be blameless - he must not be self-willed or quick-tempered, he must not drink excessively, get into fights or be greedy for dishonest gain. NIV 7 Since an overseer manages God’s household, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. CJB 8 On the contrary, he must be hospitable, devoted to good, sober-mindedness, uprightness, holiness and self-control. NIV 8 Rather, he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. CJB 9 He must hold firmly to the trustworthy Message that agrees with the doctrine; so that by his sound teaching he will be able to exhort and encourage, and also to refute those who speak against it. NIV 9 He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.
