Titus 1:

Chapter 1:16 Verses

56 Titus

56-1:1.     Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God’s elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;

56-1:2.     In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

56-1:3.     But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;

56-1:4.     To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.

56-1:5.     For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:

56-1:6.     If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

56-1:7.     For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

56-1:8.     But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

56-1:9.     Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

56-1:10.    For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

56-1:11.    Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

56-1:12.    One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.

56-1:13.    This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

56-1:14.    Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

56-1:15.    Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

56-1:16.    They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
