056:Book 56


056: Titus Book 56


056:Titus 001:001
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;


056:001:002
In hope of eternal life,
which God,
that cannot lie,
promised before the world began;


056:001:003
But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching,
which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;


056:001:004
To Titus,
mine own son after the common faith:
Grace,
mercy,
and peace,
from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.


056:001:005
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:


056:001:006
If any be blameless,
the husband of one wife,
having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.


056:001:007
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;


056:001:008
But a lover of hospitality,
a lover of good men,
sober,
just,
holy,
temperate;


056:001:009
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.


056:001:010
For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers,
specially they of the circumcision:


056:001:011
Whose mouths must be stopped,
who subvert whole houses,
teaching things which they ought not,
for filthy lucre's sake.


056:001:012
One of themselves,
even a prophet of their own,
said,
The Cretians are alway liars,
evil beasts,
slow bellies.


056:001:013
This witness is true.
Wherefore rebuke them sharply,
that they may be sound in the faith;


056:001:014
Not giving heed to Jewish fables,
and commandments of men,
that turn from the truth.


056:001:015
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.


056:001:016
They profess that they know God;
but in works they deny him,
being abominable,
and disobedient,
and unto every good work reprobate.
