Book of Titus
3:1 Put them in mind to be in subjection to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to
be ready unto every good work, 3:2to speak evil of no man, not to be contentious,
to be gentle, showing all meekness toward all men. 3:3For we also once were
foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice
and envy, hateful, hating one another. 3:4But when the kindness of God our
Saviour, and his love toward man, appeared, 3:5not by works done in
righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy he saved us,
through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, 3:6which he
poured out upon us richly, through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 3:7that, being justified
by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
3:8Faithful is the saying, and concerning these things I desire that thou affirm
confidently, to the end that they who have believed God may be careful to
maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men: 3:9but shun
foolish questionings, and genealogies, and strifes, and fightings about law; for
they are unprofitable and vain. 3:10A factious man after a first and second
admonition refuse; 3:11knowing that such a one is perverted, and sinneth, being
self-condemned. 3:12When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, give
diligence to come unto me to Nicopolis: for there I have determined to winter.
3:13Set forward Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that
nothing be wanting unto them. 3:14And let our people also learn to maintain good
works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful. 3:15All that are with me salute
thee. Salute them that love us in faith. Grace be with you all.
