Titus 1

1Paul, a servant of  יהוה, and an apostle of  Yahushua the Messiah, according to the faith of  יהוה's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after reverence; 2In hope of eternal life, which Elohim, who does not lie, promised before the world began; 3But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of Elohim our Saviour; 4To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Favour, mercy, and peace, from  יהוה the Father and the Master  Yahushua the Messiah our Saviour. 5For 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: 6If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. 7For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of  יהוה; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; 8But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, set-apart, temperate; 9Holding 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. 10For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: 11Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. 12One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. 13This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; 14Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. 15Unto 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. 16They profess that they know  יהוה; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
