1Sha’ul [desired], a slave of God-The Father, and an apostle of Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah], according to the faith of God-The Father’s elect, and the acknowledging of the twhich is after godliness;
2In hope of eternal life, which God-The Father, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
3But has in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God-The Father our Saviour;
4To Titus [nurse], [my] own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, [and] peace, from God-The Father the Father and the Lord - Kurios [he to whom a person belongs] Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah] our Saviour.
5For this cause left I youi in Crete [fleshy], that youi should set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed youi:
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-The Father; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy profit;
8But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
9Holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convict the gainsayers.
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 profit’s sake.
12One of themselves, [even] a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians [fleshy] [are] always liars, evil beasts, idle gluttons.
13This witness is true. For what reason rebuke (reprimand; strongly warn; restrain) 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-The Father; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate (rejected; failing the test; lost in sin).
