1 G3972 Paul, G1401 a slave G2316 of God, G1161 and G652 an apostle G2424 of Jesus G5547 Anointed, 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 according to G2150 piety;
2 G1909 In G1680 hope G166 of age-during G2222 life, G3739 which G2316 God, G893 who cannot lie, G1861 [G5662] promised G4253 before G166 age-during G5550 times;
3 G1161 But G5319 0 hath G2398 in due G2540 seasons G5319 [G5656] manifested G846 his G3056 word G1722 through G2782 proclamation, G3739 which G4100 [G5681] is committed G1473 to me G2596 according to G2003 the commandment G2316 of God G2257 our G4990 Saviour;
4 G5103 To Titus, G1103 my genuine G5043 child 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 Anointed G2257 our G4990 Saviour.
5 G5127 For this G5484 favor G2641 [G5627] I left G4571 thee G1722 in G2914 Crete, G2443 that G1930 [G5672] thou shouldest set in order G3007 [G5723] the things that are wanting, G2532 and G2525 [G5661] designate G4245 elders G2596 in every G4172 city, G5613 as G1473 I G1299 [G5668] had appointed G4671 thee:
6 G1536 If any G2076 [G5748] is G410 blameless, G435 the husband G3391 of one G1135 wife, G2192 [G5723] having G4103 faithful G5043 children, G3361 not G1722 in G2724 an accusation G810 of profligacy G2228 or G506 rebellion.
7 G1063 For G1985 an overseer G1163 [G5748] must G1511 [G5750] 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 greedy for money;
8 G235 But G5382 a lover of hospitality, G5358 a lover of good men, G4998 discreet, G1342 just, G3741 holy, G1468 temperate;
9 G472 [G5740] Holding fast G4103 the faithful G3056 word G2596 as G1322 he hath been taught, G2443 that G5600 [G5753] he may be G1415 able G1722 by G5198 [G5723] sound G1319 teaching G2532 both G3870 [G5721] to exhort G2532 and G1651 [G5721] to convict G483 [G5723] those who contradict.
10 G1063 For G1526 [G5748] there are G4183 many G506 rebellious G2532 and G3151 vain talkers G2532 and G5423 deceivers, G3122 especially G1537 they of G4061 the circumcision:
11 G3739 Whose G1993 0 mouths G1163 [G5748] must G1993 [G5721] be stopped, G3748 who G396 [G5719] subvert G3650 whole G3624 houses, G1321 [G5723] teaching G3739 things which G1163 [G5748] they ought G3361 not, G5484 for the favor G150 of shameful G2771 gain.
12 G5100 One G1537 of G846 themselves, G4396 even a prophet G846 of their G2398 own, G2036 [G5627] said, G2912 The Cretians G104 are always G5583 liars, G2556 bad G2342 wild beasts, G692 lazy G1064 gluttons.
13 G3778 This G3141 testimony G2076 [G5748] is G227 true. G1223 G3739 G156 Therefore G1651 [G5720] rebuke G846 them G664 sharply, G2443 that G5198 [G5725] they may be sound G1722 in G4102 the faith;
14 G3361 Not G4337 [G5723] giving heed G2451 to Judaic G3454 fables, G2532 and G1785 commandments G444 of men, G654 [G5734] that turn from G3588 the G225 truth.
15 G2513 To the clean G3956 all things G3303 indeed G2513 are clean: G1161 but G3392 [G5772] to them being defiled G2532 and G571 unbelieving G3762 is nothing G2513 clean; G235 but G2532 even G846 their G3563 mind G2532 and G4893 conscience G3392 [G5769] is defiled.
