(bc#1130/ntc#201) Titus 1 — Liars chapter–Lying–deceiving–lack of truth–speaking falsely for sordid gain (16 verses)
29894, 1,6749, Titus 1:1 Paul, 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;
29895, 2,6750, 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
29896, 3,6751, 1:3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
29897, 4,6752, 1:4 To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
29898, 5,6753, 1:5 For 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:
29899, 6,6754, 1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
29900, 7,6755, 1:7 For 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;
29901, 8,6756, 1:8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
29902, 9,6757, 1:9 Holding 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.
29903, 10,6758, Titus 1:10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
29904, 11,6759, 1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
29905, 12,6760, 1:12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
29906, 13,6761, 1:13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
29907, 14,6762, 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
29908, 15,6763, 1:15 Unto 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.
29909, 16,6764, 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
(#1131/202) Titus 2 — Commands for Godly living while waiting for Jesus Return (15 verses)
29910, 17,6765, Titus 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
29911, 18,6766, 2:2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
29912, 19,6767, 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
29913, 20,6768, 2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
29914, 21,6769, 2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
29915, 22,6770, 2:6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
29916, 23,6771, 2:7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
29917, 24,6772, 2:8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
29918, 25,6773, 2:9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all things; not answering again;
29919, 26,6774, Titus 2:10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
29920, 27,6775, 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
29921, 28,6776, 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
29922, 29,6777, 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
29923, 30,6778, 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
29924, 31,6779, 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
(#1132/203) Titus 3 — Instructions; be subject to rulers, authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, (15 verses)
29925, 32,6780, Titus 3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
29926, 33,6781, 3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
29927, 34,6782, 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
29928, 35,6783, 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
29929, 36,6784, 3:5 Not 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;
29930, 37,6785, 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
29931, 38,6786, 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
29932, 39,6787, 3:8 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.
29933, 40,6788, 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
29934, 41,6789, Titus 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
29935, 42,6790, 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
29936, 43,6791, 3:12 When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter.
29937, 44,6792, 3:13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them.
29938, 45,6793, 3:14 And let our’s also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.
29939, 46,6794, 3:15 All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
