Titus 3

Godly Living

1 a  Remind them b  to be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be c  ready for every good deed, 2to malign no one d  to be peaceable e  gentle f  showing every consideration for all men. 3 g  For we also once were foolish ourselves h  disobedient i  deceived j  enslaved to k  various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in l  malice and m  envy, hateful, hating one another. 4But when the n  kindness of o  God our Savior and His love for mankind p  appeared, 5 q  He saved us, r  not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but s  according to His mercy, by the t  washing of regeneration and u  renewing by the Holy Spirit, 6 v  whom He poured out upon us w  richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7so that being justified by His grace we would be made x  heirs
Or of eternal life according to hope
according to the hope of eternal life.
8 z  This is a trustworthy statement; and concerning these things I aa  want you to speak confidently, so that those who have ab  believed God will be careful to ac  engage in good deeds. These things are good and profitable for men. 9But ad  avoid ae  foolish controversies and af  genealogies and strife and ag  disputes about the Law, for they are ah  unprofitable and worthless. 10 ai  Reject a aj  factious man ak  after a first and second warning, 11knowing that such a man is al  perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.

Personal Concerns

12When I send Artemas or am  Tychicus to you, an  make every effort to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to ao  spend the winter there. 13Diligently help Zenas the ap  lawyer and aq  Apollos on their way so that nothing is lacking for them. 14 ar  Our people must also learn to as  engage in good
Or occupations
deeds to meet au  pressing needs, so that they will not be av  unfruitful.

15 aw  All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us ax  in the faith.

ay  Grace be with you all.
