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 elect, G2532 and G1922 the acknowledging G225 of the truth G3588 which G2596 is after G2150 godliness;
2 G1909 In G1680 hope G166 of eternal G2222 life, G3739 which G2316 God, G893 that cannot lie, G1861 promised G4253 before G5550 the world G166 began;
3 G1161 But G5319 has G2398 in due G2540 times G5319 manifested G846 his G3056 word G1722 through G2782 preaching, G3739 which G4100 is committed unto G1473 me G2596 according to G2003 the commandment G2316 of God G2257 our G4990 Savior;
4 G5103 To Titus, G1103 my own G5043 son G2596 after G2839 the 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 G5127 For this G5484 cause G2641 I G4571 left you G1722 in G2914 Crete, G2443 that G1930 you should set in order G3588 the things G3007 that are lacking, G2532 and G2525 ordain G4245 elders G2596 in every G4172 city, G5613 as G1473 I G1299 had appointed G4671 you:
6 G1487 If G5100 any G2076 is G410 blameless, G435 the husband G1520 of one G1135 wife, G2192 having G4103 faithful G5043 sons G3361 not G2724 accused G810 of riot G2228 or G506 unruly.
7 G1063 For G1985 a bishop G1163 must G1511 be G410 blameless, G5613 as G3623 the steward G2316 of God; G3361 not G829 selfwilled, G3361 not G3711 soon angry, G3361 not G3943 given to wine, G3361 not G4131 violent, G3361 not G146 given to filthy money;
8 G235 But G5382 a lover of hospitality, G5358 a lover of good men, G4998 sober, G1342 just, G3741 holy, G1468 temperate;
9 G472 Holding fast G4103 the faithful G3056 word G2596 as G1322 he has been taught, G2443 that G5600 he may be G1415 able G1722 by G5198 sound G1319 teaching G2532 both G3870 to exhort G2532 and G1651 to convince G483 the deniers.
10 G1063 For G1526 there are G4183 many G506 unruly G2532 and 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 who G396 subvert G3650 whole G3624 houses, G1321 teaching G3739 things which G1163 they ought G3361 not, G5484 for G150 filthy G2771 money's G5484 sake.
12 G5100 One G1537 of G846 themselves, G4396 even a prophet G846 of their G2398 own, G2036 said, G2912 The Cretians G104 are always G5583 liars, G2556 evil G2342 animals, G692 idle G1064 gluttons.
13 G3778 This G3141 witness G2076 is G227 true. G1223 Therefore G1651 rebuke G846 them G664 sharply, G2443 that G5198 they may be sound G1722 in G156 the faith;
14 G3361 Not G4337 giving heed to G2451 Jewish G3454 fables, G2532 and G1785 commandments G444 of men, G654 that turn from G225 the truth.
15 G2513 Unto the pure G3956 all things G2513 are pure: G1161 but G3392 unto them that are defiled G2532 and G571 unbelieving G3762 nothing G2513 is pure; G235 but G2532 even G846 their G3563 mind G2532 and G4893 conscience G3392 are defiled.
