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.
