THE LETTER OF PAUL TO TITUS

(Paul's epistle to Titus is thought to have been written in 62-65 AD.)

Titus 1

Greetings from Paul
1  PAULOS, A BOND-SERVANT OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) AND AN APOSTLE OF JESUS, THE CHRIST, FOR THE FAITH OF THOSE CHOSEN OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH WHICH IS ACCORDING TO GODLINESS,

2  IN THE HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE, WHICH THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), WHO CANNOT LIE, PROMISED LONG AGES AGO,

3  BUT AT THE PROPER TIME MANIFESTED, even HIS WORD, IN THE PROCLAMATION WITH WHICH I WAS ENTRUSTED ACCORDING TO THE COMMANDMENT OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) OUR SAVIOUR,

4  TO TITUS, MY TRUE SON (spiritually) IN THE SAME FAITH: GRACE AND PEACE FROM THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) THE FATHER AND CHRIST JESUS OUR SAVIOUR.

Titus's Work in Crete
5  FOR THIS REASON I LEFT YOU IN CRETE, THAT YOU WOULD SET IN ORDER WHAT REMAINS AND APPOINT ELDERS IN EVERY CITY AS I DIRECTED YOU,

6  (i.e.), IF ANYONE IS ABOVE REPROACH, THE HUSBAND OF FIRST WIFE (See 1 Tim. 3:2), HAVING CHILDREN WHO BELIEVE, NOT ACCUSED OF DEBAUCHERY/WASTEFULNESS/EMPTINESS OR REBELLION. (Debauchery = unrestrained lifestyle.)

7  FOR THE OVERSEER MUST BE ABOVE REPROACH AS THEOS' STEWARD, NOT SELF-WILLED, NOT QUICK-TEMPERED, NOT ADDICTED TO WINE, NOT A BRAWLER, NOT given to FILTHY/DISHONORABLE GAIN/PROFIT, (1 Tim. 3:8)

8  BUT HOSPITABLE, LOVING WHAT IS GOOD, SENSIBLE, FAIR, DEVOUT, SELF-CONTROLLED,

9  HOLDING TIGHT TO THE FAITHFUL WORD WHICH IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE TEACHING, SO THAT HE WILL BE ABLE BOTH TO PREACH IN SOUND DOCTRINE AND TO REFUTE THOSE WHO CONTRADICT.

10  FOR THERE ARE MANY REBELLIOUS MEN, EMPTY TALKERS AND DECEIVERS, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF THE CIRCUMCISION,

11  WHO MUST BE SILENCED BECAUSE THEY ARE UPSETTING ENTIRE FAMILIES, TEACHING THINGS THEY SHOULD NOT teach FOR THE SAKE OF FILTHY/DISHONORABLE GAIN/PROFIT.

12  ONE OF THEMSELVES, A PROPHET OF THEIR OWN, SAID, "CRETANS ARE ALWAYS LIARS, EVIL BEASTS, LAZY GLUTTONS."

13  THIS TESTIMONY IS TRUE. FOR THIS REASON REPROVE THEM SEVERELY SO THAT THEY MAY BE SOUND IN THE FAITH,

14  NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO JUDEAN MYTHS AND COMMANDMENTS OF MANKIND WHICH TURN AWAY FROM THE TRUTH.

15  TO THE PURE, MOST THINGS ARE PURE; BUT TO THOSE WHO ARE DEFILED AND UNBELIEVING, NOTHING IS PURE, BUT BOTH THEIR MIND AND THEIR CONSCIENCE ARE DEFILED.

16  THEY PROFESS TO KNOW THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), BUT BY their WORKS THEY DENY Him, BEING DETESTABLE AND DISOBEDIENT AND WORTHLESS FOR ANY GOOD WORK.
