1 G3972 Paul, G1401 a servant G2316 of God, G652 and an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Christ, G2596 according G4102 to the faith G2316 of God’s G1588 elect, G1922 and the acknowledging G225 of the truth G3588 which G2596 is after G2150 godliness;
2 G1680 In hope G166 of eternal G2222 life, G3739 which G2316 God, G893 that cannot G893 lie, G1861 promised G4253 before G166 the world G4253 began;
3 G2398 But has in due G5550 times G5319 manifested G3056 his word G1722 through G2782 preaching, G3739 which G4100 is committed G2596 to me according G2003 to the commandment G2316 of God G4990 our Savior;
4 G5103 To Titus, G1103 my own G5043 son G2596 after G2839 the common G4102 faith: G5485 Grace, G1656 mercy, G1515 and peace, G2316 from God G3962 the Father G2962 and the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ G4990 our Savior.
5 G5127 For this G5484 cause G2641 left G2914 I you in Crete, G1930 that you should set G1930 in order G3007 the things that are wanting, G2525 and ordain G4245 elders G2596 in every G4172 city, G1299 as I had appointed you:
6 G1487 If G1536 any G410 be blameless, G435 the husband G3391 of one G1135 wife, G2192 having G4103 faithful G5043 children G1722 not accused G2724 G810 of riot G2228 or G506 unruly.
7 G1985 For a bishop G1163 must G410 be blameless, G3622 as the steward G2316 of God; G829 not self-willed, G3711 not soon G3711 angry, G3943 not given G3943 to wine, G3361 no G4131 striker, G150 not given to filthy G146 lucre;
8 G5382 But a lover G5382 of hospitality, G5358 a lover G5358 of good G4998 men, sober, G1342 just, G3741 holy, G1468 temperate;
9 G472 Holding G472 fast G4103 the faithful G3056 word G1322 as he has been taught, G1415 that he may be able G5198 by sound G1319 doctrine G2532 both G3870 to exhort G1651 and to convince G483 the disputers.
10 G4183 For there are many G506 unruly G3151 and vain G3151 talkers G5423 and deceivers, G3122 specially G4061 they of the circumcision:
11 G3739 Whose G1993 mouths G1163 must G1993 be stopped, G3748 who G396 subvert G3650 whole G3624 houses, G1321 teaching G3739 things which G1163 they ought G150 not, for filthy G2771 lucre’s sake.
12 G5100 One G846 of themselves, G4396 even a prophet G2398 of their own, G2036 said, G2912 The Cretians G104 are always G5583 liars, G2556 evil G2342 beasts, G692 slow G1064 bellies.
13 G3778 This G3141 witness G227 is true. G1223 Why G3739 G1651 rebuke G664 them sharply, G5198 that they may be sound G4102 in the faith;
14 G4337 Not giving heed G2451 to Jewish G3454 fables, G1785 and commandments G444 of men, G654 that turn G225 from the truth.
15 G2513 To the pure G3956 all G2513 things are pure: G3392 but to them that are defiled G571 and unbelieving G3762 is nothing G2513 pure; G2532 but even G3563 their mind G4893 and conscience G3392 is defiled.
