1:1 Paul, a servant of Elohim and an apostle of YASHUWAH the Messiah, according to the faith of Elohim’s elect and the knowledge of the truth which leads to Elohimliness, Titus
1:2 in hope of everlasting life which Elohim, who cannot lie, promised before the world began, Titus
1:3 and has in due time revealed His word through preaching, with which I was entrusted according to the command of Elohim our Saviour,
1:4 To Titus, my own son in the common faith:
Grace, mercy, and peace, from Elohim the Father and the Master YASHUWAH the Messiah our Saviour.
1:5 For this reason I left you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are lacking, and appoint elders in every city, as I commanded you: Titus
1:6 any man who is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children who are not accused of being wild or unruly. Titus
1:7 For an overseer must be blameless, as a steward of Elohim, not self-willed, not easily angered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not greedy for dishonest gain, Titus
1:8 but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober, just, holy, temperate, Titus
1:9 holding firmly the trustworthy word that is in accordance with the teaching, that he may be able both to exhort with sound doctrine and to convince those who oppose it.
1:10 For there are many unruly men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision, Titus
1:11 who must be silenced, who subvert whole houses by teaching for dishonest gain things they ought not teach. Titus
1:12 One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “The Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, and idle gluttons!” Titus
1:13 This witness is true. So rebuke them sharply that they may be sound in the faith, Titus
1:14 not paying attention to Jewish myths and commandments of men who reject the truth. Titus
1:15 To the pure, all things are pure. But to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure. Even their minds and consciences are defiled. Titus
1:16 They profess that they know Elohim, but in their deeds they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and worthless for every good work.
2:1 But as for you, teach what is fitting of sound doctrine: Titus
2:2 Older men should be sober, serious, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience.
2:3 Likewise, older women should be reverent in behavior, and not be false accusers, not be enslaved to much wine, but teachers of good things, Titus
2:4 that they may teach the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, Titus
2:5 and to be self-controlled, pure, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of Elohim may not be dishonored.
2:6 Likewise, exhort young men to be self-controlled, Titus
2:7 in all things presenting yourself as an example of good works: in doctrine showing integrity, gravity, incorruptibility, Titus
2:8 and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that the one who opposes you may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.
2:9 Exhort servants to be obedient to their own masters, to please them well in everything, not answering back, Titus
2:10 or stealing, but showing complete fidelity, so that they may exemplify the doctrine of Elohim our Saviour in all things.
2:11 For the grace of Elohim that brings salvation has appeared to all men, Titus
2:12 teaching us that, denying unElohimliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, righteously, and in Elohimliness in this present world, Titus
2:13 as we await the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great Elohim and Saviour YASHUWAH the Messiah, Titus
2:14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all lawlessness and purify for Himself a special people, zealous of good works.
2:15 Teach these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.
3:1 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey them, to be ready for every good work, Titus
3:2 to speak evil of no one, not to be contentious, but gentle, showing all humility toward everyone.
3:3 We also were once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various desires and pleasures, living in evil and envy, filled with hatred and hating each other. Titus
3:4 But when the kindness and the love of Elohim our Saviour toward mankind appeared, Titus
3:5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of rebirth and the renewal of the Holy Spirit, Titus
3:6 whom He poured out on us abundantly through YASHUWAH the Messiah our Saviour, Titus
3:7 so that, being justified by His grace, we might become heirs according to the hope of everlasting life. Titus
3:8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you constantly to affirm, so that those who have believed in Elohim might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to everyone.
3:9 But avoid foolish debates, genealogies, contentions, and arguments about the law, for they are unprofitable and useless. Titus
3:10 Reject a heretic man after a first and second admonition, Titus
3:11 knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.
3:12 When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, be diligent to come to me in Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there. Titus
3:13 Diligently send Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey. See that they lack nothing. Titus
3:14 And let our people also learn to continue doing good works to meet urgent needs, that they may not be unproductive.
3:15 All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith.
Grace be with you all. Amen.
