The King James Bible

Book 56    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;
001:002 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised
        before the world began;
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;
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
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:
001:006 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful
        children not accused of riot or unruly.
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;
001:008 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just,
        holy, temperate;
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.
001:010 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers,
        specially they of the circumcision:
001:011 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses,
        teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
001:012 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The
        Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
001:013 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they
        may be sound in the faith;
001:014 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men,
        that turn from the truth.
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.
001:016 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him,
        being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work
002:001 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
002:002 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith,
        in charity, in patience.
002:003 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh
        holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers
        of good things;
002:004 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their
        husbands, to love their children,
002:005 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to
        their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
002:006 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
002:007 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in
        doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
002:008 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the
        contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of
002:009 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to
        please them well in all things; not answering again;
002:010 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may
        adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
002:011 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to
        all men,
002:012 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we
        should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present
002:013 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of
        the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
002:014 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all
        iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous
        of good works.
002:015 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority.
        Let no man despise thee.
003:001 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers,
        to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
003:002 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle,
        shewing all meekness unto all men.
003:003 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient,
        deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice
        and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
003:004 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward
        man appeared,
003:005 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but
        according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of
        regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
003:006 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our
003:007 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs
        according to the hope of eternal life.
003:008 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou
        affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might
        be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and
        profitable unto men.
003:009 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions,
        and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and
003:010 A man that is an heretick after the first and second
        admonition reject;
003:011 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being
        condemned of himself.
003:012 When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent
        to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to
003:013 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey
        diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them.
003:014 And let our's also learn to maintain good works for necessary
        uses, that they be not unfruitful.
003:015 All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in
        the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
