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 G2316 of 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 [G5662] G4253 before G166 the world G5550 began;
3 G1161 But G5319 hath G2398 in due G2540 times G5319 manifested [G5656] G846 his G3056 word G1722 through G2782 preaching G3739 , which G4100 is committed [G5681] G1473 unto me G2596 according to G2003 the commandment G2316 of God G2257 our G4990 Saviour;
4 G5103 To Titus G1103 , mine 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 Saviour.
5 G5127 For this G5484 cause G2641 left I [G5627] G4571 thee G1722 in G2914 Crete G2443 , that G1930 thou shouldest set in order [G5672] G3007 the things that are wanting [G5723] G2532 , and G2525 ordain [G5661] G4245 elders G2596 in every G4172 city G5613 , as G1473 I G1299 had appointed [G5668] G4671 thee:
6 G1536 If any G2076 be [G5748] G410 blameless G435 , the husband G3391 of one G1135 wife G2192 , having [G5723] G4103 faithful G5043 children G3361 not G1722 accused G2724 G810 of riot G2228 or G506 unruly.
7 G1063 For G1985 a bishop G1163 must [G5748] G1511 be [G5750] 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 , no G4131 striker G3361 , not G146 given to filthy lucre;
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 [G5740] G4103 the faithful G3056 word G2596 as G1322 he hath been taught G2443 , that G5600 he may be [G5753] G1415 able G1722 by G5198 sound [G5723] G1319 doctrine G2532 both G3870 to exhort [G5721] G2532 and G1651 to convince [G5721] G483 the gainsayers [G5723] .
10 G1063 For G1526 there are [G5748] G4183 many G506 unruly G2532 and G3151 vain talkers G2532 and G5423 deceivers G3122 , specially G1537 they of G4061 the circumcision:
11 G3739 Whose G1993 mouths G1163 must [G5748] G1993 be stopped [G5721] G3748 , who G396 subvert [G5719] G3650 whole G3624 houses G1321 , teaching [G5723] G3739 things which G1163 they ought [G5748] G3361 not G5484 , for G150 filthy G2771 lucre's G5484 sake.
12 G5100 One G1537 of G846 themselves G4396 , even a prophet G846 of their G2398 own G2036 , said [G5627] G2912 , The Cretians G104 are alway G5583 liars G2556 , evil G2342 beasts G692 , slow G1064 bellies.
13 G3778 This G3141 witness G2076 is [G5748] G227 true G1223 . Wherefore G3739 G156 G1651 rebuke [G5720] G846 them G664 sharply G2443 , that G5198 they may be sound [G5725] G1722 in G4102 the faith;
14 G3361 Not G4337 giving heed [G5723] G2451 to Jewish G3454 fables G2532 , and G1785 commandments G444 of men G654 , that turn from [G5734] G225 the truth.
15 G2513 Unto the pure G3956 all things G3303 are pure G2513 G1161 : but G3392 unto them that are defiled [G5772] G2532 and G571 unbelieving G3762 is nothing G2513 pure G235 ; but G2532 even G846 their G3563 mind G2532 and G4893 conscience G3392 is defiled [G5769] .
