Modern Literal Version

[Titus 3]

     3:1 Remind them to subject themselves to principalities and authorities, to be obedient, to be prepared *for every good work, 3:2 to blaspheme no one, to not be quarrelsome, to be gentle, showing all meekness toward all men. 3:3 For* we were also previously foolish, disobedient, being misled, serving* in various lusts and sensual-delights, leading lives in malice and envy, spiteful, hating one another. 3:4 But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love of mankind hadappeared: 3:5 he saved us (not from any works done in righteousness, which we practiced), but according to his mercy, through the full-washing of regeneration* and renewal of the Holy Spirit,3:6 which he poured out upon us richly, through Jesus Christ our Savior; 3:7 in order that we might become heirs according to the hope of everlasting life, having been made righteous in that grace.3:8 The faithful word is: and I will for you to confidently confirm concerning these things, in order that those who have believed God may be anxious to establish themselves first in good works. These things are good and profitable to men. 3:9 But avoid foolish debates and genealogies and strifes and quarrels about-law; for* they are unprofitable and futile. 3:10 Renounce a sectarian man after a first and second admonition; 3:11 knowing that such a one has been perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.

     3:12 Whenever I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, be diligent to come to me in Nicopolis; for*I have decided to winter there. 3:13 Send Zenas, the professor of the law, and Apollos onward diligently in order that nothing may be deficient for them. 3:14 But let* our people also learn to establish themselves in good works *for the necessary needs, in order that they may not be unfruitful.

     3:15 All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith.

     Grace is with all of you*. Amen.

{{ Introduction to Philemon 62-64 AD

    Paul writes the letter, not to a congregation(s) in an area but Philemon, the owner of a runaway bondservant, Onesimus. The non- Christian bondservant met Paul in Rome who taught him the truth, and he became a Christian and good friend of Paul. Paul was sending Onesimus back to Philemon, but he wants Philemon to treat this bondservant now like a brother in Christ. Paul even says he personally will compensate if need be. However, it is doubtful Philemon ever asked for it considering he was also taught the truth by Paul and, as you will see Paul being Paul in this short letter.}}
