1Put [a bow] them in mind to be subject to Principalities (rulers or their territory) and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
2To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, showing all meekness unto all men.
3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving different lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, [and] hating one another.
4But after that the kindness and love of God-The Father 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 Spirit [Ruach HaKodesh];
6Which he shed on us abundantly through Yeshua [God is Salvation] Moshiach [Messiah] 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 youi affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God-The Father might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.
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 sins, being condemned of himself.
12When I shall send Artemas [a gift of prompt, safe] unto youi, or Tychicus [fateful], be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis [city of victory]: for I have determined there to winter.
13Bring Zenas [the gift of Zeus] the lawyer and Apollos [given by Apollo (etymology uncertain)] 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 youi. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace [be] with you all. Amen. <[It was written to Titus [nurse], ordained the first bishop of the church of the Cretians [fleshy], from Nicopolis [city of victory] of Macedonia [extended land].]>
