Titus 1 (WEBP)

[1] Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ,° according to the faith of God’s chosen ones and the knowledge of the truth which is according to godliness,
[2] in hope of eternal life, which God, who can’t lie, promised before time began;
[3] but in his own time revealed his word in the message with which I was entrusted according to the commandment of God our Savior,
[4] to Titus, my true child according to a common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.
[5] I left you in Crete for this reason, that you would set in order the things that were lacking and appoint elders in every city, as I directed you—
[6] if anyone is blameless, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, who are not accused of loose or unruly behavior.
[7] For the overseer must be blameless, as God’s steward, not self-pleasing, not easily angered, not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for dishonest gain;
[8] but given to hospitality, a lover of good, sober minded, fair, holy, self-controlled,
[9] holding to the faithful word which is according to the teaching, that he may be able to exhort in the sound doctrine, and to convict those who contradict him.
[10] For there are also many unruly men, vain talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision,
[11] whose mouths must be stopped: men who overthrow whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for dishonest gain’s sake.
[12] One of them, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, and idle gluttons.”
[13] This testimony is true. For this cause, reprove them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith,
[14] not paying attention to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn away from the truth.
[15] To the pure, all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.
[16] They profess that they know God, but by their deeds they deny him, being abominable, disobedient, and unfit for any good work.

Titus 1:1 “Christ” means “Anointed One”.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Titus 1 (KJVS)

[1] Paul G3972, a servant G1401 of God G2316, and G1161 an apostle G652 of Jesus G2424 Christ G5547, according to G2596 the faith G4102 of God’s G2316 elect G1588, and G2532 the acknowledging G1922 of the truth G225 which G3588 is after G2596 godliness G2150;
[2] In G1909 hope G1680 of eternal G166 life G2222, which G3739 God G2316, that cannot lie G893, promised G1861 (AorMidDepInd) before G4253 the world G166 began G5550;
[3] But G1161 hath G5319 in due G2398 times G2540 manifested G5319 (AorActInd) his G846 word G3056 through G1722 preaching G2782, which G3739 is committed G4100 (AorPasInd) unto me G1473 according to G2596 the commandment G2003 of God G2316 our G2257 Saviour G4990;
[4] To Titus G5103, [mine] own G1103 son G5043 after G2596 the common G2839 faith G4102: Grace G5485, mercy G1656, [and] peace G1515, from G575 God G2316 the Father G3962 and G2532 the Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 our G2257 Saviour G4990.
[5] For this G5127 cause G5484 left I G2641 (Aor2ActInd) thee G4571 in G1722 Crete G2914, that G2443 thou shouldest set in order G1930 (AorMidSubj) the things that are wanting G3007 (PresActPtc), and G2532 ordain G2525 (AorActSubj) elders G4245 in every G2596 city G4172, as G5613 I G1473 had appointed G1299 (AorMidInd) thee G4671:
[6] If any G1536 be G2076 (PresInd) blameless G410, the husband G435 of one G3391 wife G1135, having G2192 (PresActPtc) faithful G4103 children G5043 not G3361 accused G1722 G2724 of riot G810 or G2228 unruly G506.
[7] For G1063 a bishop G1985 must G1163 (PresInd) be G1511 (PresInf) blameless G410, as G5613 the steward G3623 of God G2316; not G3361 selfwilled G829, not G3361 soon angry G3711, not G3361 given to wine G3943, no G3361 striker G4131, not G3361 given to filthy lucre G146;
[8] But G235 a lover of hospitality G5382, a lover of good men G5358, sober G4998, just G1342, holy G3741, temperate G1468;
[9] Holding fast G472 (PresMidPasDepPtc) the faithful G4103 word G3056 as G2596 he hath been taught G1322, that G2443 he may be G5600 (PresSubj) able G1415 by G1722 sound G5198 (PresActPtc) doctrine G1319 both G2532 to exhort G3870 (PresActInf) and G2532 to convince G1651 (PresActInf) the gainsayers G483 (PresActPtc).
[10] For G1063 there are G1526 (PresInd) many G4183 unruly G506 and G2532 vain talkers G3151 and G2532 deceivers G5423, specially G3122 they of G1537 the circumcision G4061:
[11] Whose G3739 mouths G1993 must G1163 (PresInd) be stopped G1993 (PresActInf), who G3748 subvert G396 (PresActInd) whole G3650 houses G3624, teaching G1321 (PresActPtc) things which G3739 they ought G1163 (PresInd) not G3361, for G5484 filthy G150 lucre’s G2771 sake G5484.
[12] One G5100 of G1537 themselves G846, [even] a prophet G4396 of their G846 own G2398, said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), The Cretians G2912 [are] alway G104 liars G5583, evil G2556 beasts G2342, slow G692 bellies G1064.
[13] This G3778 witness G3141 is G2076 (PresInd) true G227. Wherefore G1223 G3739 G156 rebuke G1651 (PresActImpr) them G846 sharply G664, that G2443 they may be sound G5198 (PresActSubj) in G1722 the faith G4102;
[14] Not G3361 giving heed G4337 (PresActPtc) to Jewish G2451 fables G3454, and G2532 commandments G1785 of men G444, that turn from G654 (PresMidPtc) the truth G225.
[15] Unto the pure G2513 all things G3956 [are] pure G3303 G2513: but G1161 unto them that are defiled G3392 (PerfPasPtc) and G2532 unbelieving G571 [is] nothing G3762 pure G2513; but G235 even G2532 their G846 mind G3563 and G2532 conscience G4893 is defiled G3392 (PerfPasInd).
[16] They profess G3670 (PresActInd) that they know G1492 (PerfActInf) God G2316; but G1161 in works G2041 they deny G720 (PresMidPasDepInd) [him], being G5607 (PresPtc) abominable G947, and G2532 disobedient G545, and G2532 unto G4314 every G3956 good G18 work G2041 reprobate G96.

Young’s Literal Translation

Titus 1 (YLT)

[1] Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of the choice ones of God, and an acknowledging of truth that is according to piety,
[2] upon hope of life age-during, which God, who doth not lie, did promise before times of ages,
[3] (and He manifested in proper times His word,) in preaching, which I was entrusted with, according to a charge of God our Saviour,
[4] to Titus-true child according to a common faith: Grace, kindness, peace, from God the Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour!
[5] For this cause left I thee in Crete, that the things lacking thou mayest arrange, and mayest set down in every city elders, as I did appoint to thee;
[6] if any one is blameless, of one wife a husband, having children stedfast, not under accusation of riotous living or insubordinate-
[7] for it behoveth the overseer to be blameless, as God’s steward, not self-pleased, nor irascible, not given to wine, not a striker, not given to filthy lucre;
[8] but a lover of strangers, a lover of good men, sober-minded, righteous, kind, self-controlled,
[9] holding-according to the teaching-to the stedfast word, that he may be able also to exhort in the sound teaching, and the gainsayers to convict;
[10] for there are many both insubordinate, vain-talkers, and mind-deceivers-especially they of the circumcision-
[11] whose mouth it behoveth to stop, who whole households do overturn, teaching what things it behoveth not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
[12] A certain one of them, a prophet of their own, said-‘Cretans! always liars, evil beasts, lazy bellies!’
[13] this testimony is true; for which cause convict them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith,
[14] not giving heed to Jewish fables and commands of men, turning themselves away from the truth;
[15] all things, indeed, are pure to the pure, and to the defiled and unstedfast is nothing pure, but of them defiled are even the mind and the conscience;
[16] God they profess to know, and in the works they deny Him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work disapproved.
