1 G* Paul, G1401 a bondman G2316 of God, G652 and apostle G1161   G* of Jesus G5547 Christ, G2596 for G4102 belief G1588 of the chosen G2316 of God, G2532 and G1922 full knowledge G225 of truth, G3588 of the one G2596 according to G2150 piety;
  2 G1909 unto G1680 the hope G2222 of life G166 eternal, G3739 which G1861 [4promised G3588 1the G893 3incapable of falsehood G2316 2God] G4253 before G5550 times G166 eternal,
  3 G5319 but manifested G1161   G2540 [2times G2398 1in his own] -- G3588   G3056 his word G1473   G1722 by G2782 proclamation, G3739 which G4100 I was entrusted with G1473   G2596 according to G2003 command G3588   G4990 [2our deliverer G1473   G2316 1of God].
  4 G* To Titus G1103 genuine G5043 child G2596 according to G2839 our common G4102 belief. G5484 Favor, G1656 mercy, G1515 peace G575 from G2316 God G3962 the father, G2532 and G2962 of the Lord G* Jesus G5547 Christ G3588   G4990 our deliverer. G1473  
  5 G3778 For this G5484 favor G2641 I left G1473 you G1722 in G* Crete, G2443 that G3588 the things G3007 missing G1930 you should correct, G2532 and G2525 should place G2596 in every city G4172   G4245 elders, G5613 as G1473 I G1473 set in order for you to do. G1299  
  6 G1536 If anyone G1510.2.3 is G410 without reproach, G1520 [2of one G1135 3wife G435 1husband], G5043 [3children G2192 1having G4103 2trustworthy], G3361 not G1722 with G2724 a charge G810 of carnality, G2228 or G506 unsubmissiveness.
  7 G1163 For it is necessary G1063   G3588 the G1985 overseer G410 to be without reproach, G1510.1   G5613 as G2316 God's G3623 manager; G3361 not G829 self-willed, G3361 not G3711 prone to anger, G3361 not G3943 intemperate in the use of wine, G3361 not G4131 a brawler, G3361 not G146 profiting through vice;
  8 G235 but G5382 hospitable, G5358 friend of good men, G4998 discreet, G1342 just, G3741 sacred, G1468 self-controlled,
  9 G472 holding to G3588   G2596 [3according to G3588 4the G1322 5teaching G4103 1 the trustworthy G3056 2word], G2443 that G1415 he might be able G1510.3   G2532 both G3870 to encourage G1722 in G3588 the G1319 [2teaching G3588   G5198 1sound], G2532 and G3588 [2the ones G483 3disputing G1651 1to reprove].
  10 G1510.2.6 For there are G1063   G4183 many G506 unsubmissive G2532 and G3151 vain talkers G2532 and G5423 mind-deceivers, G3122 especially G3588 the ones G1537 of G4061 the circumcision,
  11 G3739 whom G1163 it is necessary G1993 to muzzle, G3748 who G3650 [2entire G3624 3houses G396 1upset], G1321 teaching G3739 what G3361 they must not, G1163   G149 [2of shameful G2771 3gain G5484 1for favor].
  12 G2036 There said G5100 a certain one G1537 of G1473 them, G2398 [2of their own G1473   G4396 1a prophet], G* Cretans G104 continually G5583 are liars, G2556 evil G2342 wild beasts, G1064 [2bellies G692 1idle].
  13 G3588   G3141 This testimony G3778   G1510.2.3 is G227 true; G1223 for G3739 which G156 reason G1651 reprove G1473 them G664 severely! G2443 that G5198 they should be sound G1722 in G3588 the G4102 belief,
  14 G3361 not G4337 giving heed G* to Jewish G3454 fables, G2532 and G1785 commandments G444 of men, G654 turning away from G3588 the G225 truth.
  15 G3956 All things G3303 indeed G2513 are pure G3588 to the G2513 pure; G3588 but to the ones G1161   G3392 being defiled G2532 and G571 unbelieving G3762 nothing G2513 is pure; G235 but G3392 [5are defiled G1473 1even their G2532   G3588   G3563 2mind G2532 3and G3588   G4893 4conscience].
  16 G2316 God G3670 they acknowledge G1492 to know, G3588 but in the G1161   G2041 works G720 they deny, G947 being abominable G1510.6   G2532 and G545 resisting persuasion, G2532 and G4314 [2to G3956 3every G2041 5work G18 4good G96 1rejected].
