Paul's Greeting to Titus
(2 Corinthians 8:16-24)
1Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and
the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness; 2In hope of eternal life, which God, that
cannot lie, promised before the world began; 3But hath in due times manifested his word through
preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
4To Titus, [mine] own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, [and] peace, from God the Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Appointment of Elders on Crete
5For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and
ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee: 6If any be blameless, the husband of one wife,
having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. 7For a bishop must be blameless, as the
steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy
lucre; 8But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; 9Holding fast
the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort
and to convince the gainsayers.
Correcting False Teachers
10For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
11Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought
not, for filthy lucre's sake. 12One of themselves, [even] a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians
[are] alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. 13This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply,
that they may be sound in the faith; 14Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of
men, that turn from the truth. 15Unto the pure all things [are] pure: but unto them that are defiled
and unbelieving [is] nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. 16They profess
that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto
every good work reprobate.

Teaching Sound Doctrine
1But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 2That the aged men be sober, grave,
temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
3The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers,
not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4That they may teach the young women to be
sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5[To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home,
good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
6Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. 7In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good
works: in doctrine [shewing] uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, 8Sound speech, that cannot be
condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of
9[Exhort] servants to be obedient unto their own masters, [and] to please [them] well in all
[things]; not answering again; 10Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn
the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
God's Grace Brings Salvation
11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that,
denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this
present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and
our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and
purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
15These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

Obedience to Authorities
1Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to
every good work, 2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness
unto all men.
God's Mercy to Us
3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and
pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, [and] hating one another. 4But after that the kindness
and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5Not by works of righteousness which we have
done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the
Holy Ghost; 6Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7That being
justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8[This is] a
faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in
God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
Avoiding Divisions
9But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for
they are unprofitable and vain. 10A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition
reject; 11Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
Final Remarks and Greetings
12When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I
have determined there to winter. 13Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently,
that nothing be wanting unto them. 14And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary
uses, that they be not unfruitful.
15All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace [be] with you all.
