Book 56 Titus 001:001 Paul, a bondservant of God and an Apostle of
Jesus Christ for building up the faith of God's own people and
spreading a full knowledge of the truths of religion, 001:002 in hope of
the Life of the Ages which God, who is never false to His word,
promised before the commencement of the Ages. 001:003 And at the
appointed time He clearly made known His Message in the preaching
with which I was entrusted by the command of God our Saviour:
001:004 To Titus my own true child in our common faith. May grace
and peace be granted to you from God the Father and Christ Jesus our
Saviour. 001:005 I have left you behind in Crete in order that you may
set right the things which still require attention, and appoint Elders in
every town, as I directed you to do; 001:006 wherever there is a man of
blameless life, true to his one wife, having children who are themselves
believers and are free from every reproach of profligacy or of stubborn
self-will. 001:007 For, as God's steward, a minister must be of
blameless life, not over-fond of having his own way, not a man of a
passionate temper nor a hard drinker, not given to blows nor greedy of
gain, 001:008 but hospitable to strangers, a lover of goodness,
sober-minded, upright, saintly, self-controlled; 001:009 holding fast to
the faithful Message which he has received, so that he may be well
qualified both to encourage others with sound teaching and to reply
successfully to opponents. 001:010 For there are many that spurn
authority--idle, talkative and deceitful persons, who, for the most part,
are adherents of the Circumcision. 001:011 You must stop the mouths
of such men, for they overthrow the faith of whole families, teaching
what they ought not, just for the sake of making money. 001:012 One
of their own number--a Prophet who is a countryman of theirs-- has

said, "Cretans are always liars, dangerous animals, idle gluttons."
001:013 This testimony is true. Therefore sternly denounce them, that
they may be robust in their faith, 001:014 and not give attention to
Jewish legends and the maxims of men who turn their backs on the
truth. 001:015 To the pure everything is pure; but to the polluted and
unbelieving nothing is pure, but on the contrary their very minds and
consciences are polluted. 001:016 They profess to know God; but in
their actions they disown Him, and are detestable and disobedient men,
and for any good work are utterly useless. 002:001 But as for you, you
must speak in a manner that befits wholesome teaching. 002:002
Exhort aged men to be temperate, grave, sober-minded, robust in their
faith, their love and their patience. 002:003 In the same way exhort
aged women to let their conduct be such as becomes consecrated
persons. They must not be slanderers nor enslaved to wine-drinking.
They must be teachers of what is right. 002:004 They should school the
young women to be affectionate to their husbands and to their children,
to be sober-minded, pure in their lives, 002:005 industrious in their
homes, kind, submissive to their husbands, so that the Christian
teaching may not be exposed to reproach. 002:006 In the same way
exhort the younger men to be discreet, 002:007 and above all make
your own life a pattern of right conduct, having in your teaching no
taint of insincerity, but a serious tone, 002:008 and healthy
