Chapter 1 2 3

X Titus

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,

X 2 in hope of everlasting life which Elohim, who cannot lie, promised before the world began,

X 3 and has in due time revealed His word through preaching, with which I was entrusted according to the command of Elohim our Saviour,

X 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.

X 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:

X 6 any man who is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children who are not accused of being wild or unruly.

X 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,

X 8 but hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober, just, holy, temperate,

X 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.

X 10 For there are many unruly men, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision,

X 11 who must be silenced, who subvert whole houses by teaching for dishonest gain things they ought not teach.

X 12 One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “The Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, and idle gluttons!”

X 13 This witness is true. So rebuke them sharply that they may be sound in the faith,

X 14 not paying attention to Jewish myths and commandments of men who reject the truth.

X 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.

X 16 They profess that they know Elohim, but in their deeds they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and worthless for every good work.

X Titus

2:1  But as for you, teach what is fitting of sound doctrine:

X 2 Older men should be sober, serious, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience.

X 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,

X 4 that they may teach the young women to love their husbands, to love their children,

X 5 and to be self-controlled, pure, homemakers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of Elohim may not be dishonored.

X 6 Likewise, exhort young men to be self-controlled,

X 7 in all things presenting yourself as an example of good works: in doctrine showing integrity, gravity, incorruptibility,

X 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.

X 9 Exhort servants to be obedient to their own masters, to please them well in everything, not answering back,

X 10 or stealing, but showing complete fidelity, so that they may exemplify the doctrine of Elohim our Saviour in all things.

X 11 For the grace of Elohim that brings salvation has appeared to all men,

X 12 teaching us that, denying unElohimliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly, righteously, and in Elohimliness in this present world,

X 13 as we await the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great Elohim and Saviour YASHUWAH the Messiah,

X 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.

X 15 Teach these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.

X Titus

3:1 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey them, to be ready for every good work,

X 2 to speak evil of no one, not to be contentious, but gentle, showing all humility toward everyone.

X 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.

X 4 But when the kindness and the love of Elohim our Saviour toward mankind appeared,

X 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,

X 6 whom He poured out on us abundantly through YASHUWAH the Messiah our Saviour,

X 7 so that, being justified by His grace, we might become heirs according to the hope of everlasting life.

X 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.

X 9 But avoid foolish debates, genealogies, contentions, and arguments about the law, for they are unprofitable and useless.

X 10 Reject a heretic man after a first and second admonition,

X 11 knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.

X 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.

X 13 Diligently send Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey. See that they lack nothing.

X 14 And let our people also learn to continue doing good works to meet urgent needs, that they may not be unproductive.

X 15 All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
