1 G3972 Paul, G1401 a servant G2316 of God, G1161 and G652 an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ, G2596 according to G4102 the faith G1588 of G2316 God's G1588 chosen G2532 ones, and G1922 the knowledge G1588 of G225 the truth G3588 which G2150 is according to godliness,
2 G1909 in G1680 hope G166 of eternal G2222 life, G3739 which G2316 God, G893 who can't lie, G1861 promised G4253 before G5550 time G166 began;
3 G1161 but G5319 G2398 in his own G2540 time G5319 revealed G846 his G3056 word G1722 in G2782 the message G3739 with which G1473 I G4100 was entrusted G2596 according to G2003 the commandment G2316 of God G2257 our G4990 Savior;
4 G5103 to Titus, G1103 my true G5043 child G2596 according G2839 to a common G4102 faith: G5485 Grace, G1656 mercy, G1515 and peace G575 from G2316 God G3962 the Father G2532 and G2962 the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G2257 our G4990 Savior.
5 G2641 I G4571 left you G1722 in G2914 Crete G5127 for this G2443 reason, that G4571 you G1930 would set in order G3588 the things G2532 that were lacking, and G2525 appoint G4245 elders G1473 in G2596 every G4172 city, G5613 as G1473 I G1299 directed G4671 you;
6 G1487 if G5100 anyone G2076 is G410 blameless, G435 the husband G1520 of one G1135 wife, G2192 having G5043 children G4103 who believe, G3361 who are not G2724 accused G810 of loose G2228 or G506 unruly behavior.
7 G1063 For G1985 the overseer G1163 must G1511 be G410 blameless, G5613 as G2316 God's G3623 steward; G3361 not G829 self-pleasing, G3361 not G3711 easily angered, G3361 not G3943 given to wine, G3361 not G4131 violent, G3361 not G146 greedy for dishonest gain;
8 G235 but G5382 given to hospitality, G5358 a lover of good, G4998 sober G1342 minded, fair, G3741 holy, G1468 self-controlled;
9 G472 holding G4103 to the faithful G3056 word G2596 which G1322 is according to the teaching, G2443 that G5600 he may be G1415 able G2532 to G3870 exhort G1722 in G5198 the sound G1319 doctrine, G2532 and G1651 to convict G483 those who contradict him.
10 G1063 For G1526 there are G4183 also many G506 unruly G2532 men, G3151 vain talkers G2532 and G5423 deceivers, G3122 especially G3588 those G1537 of G4061 the circumcision,
11 G3739 whose G1993 mouths G1163 must G1993 be stopped; G3748 men who G396 overthrow G3650 whole G3624 houses, G1321 teaching G3739 things which G1163 they ought G3361 not, G5484 for G150 dishonest G2771 gain's G5484 sake.
12 G5100 One G1537 of G4396 them, a prophet G1537 of G846 their G2398 own, G2036 said, G2912 "Cretans G104 are always G5583 liars, G2556 evil G2342 beasts, G692 and idle G1064 gluttons."
13 G3778 This G3141 testimony G2076 is G227 true. G1223 For this cause, G1651 reprove G846 them G664 sharply, G2443 that G5198 they may be sound G1722 in G156 the faith,
14 G3361 not G4337 paying attention to G2451 Jewish G3454 fables G2532 and G1785 commandments G444 of men G654 who turn away from G225 the truth.
15 G2513 To the pure, G3956 all things G2513 are pure; G1161 but G3392 to those who are defiled G2532 and G571 unbelieving, G3762 nothing G2513 is pure; G235 but G2532 both G846 their G3563 mind G2532 and G846 their G4893 conscience G3392 are defiled.
