Titus, Chapter 3 (Pauline Epistles)

Living in Holiness

1Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities,{1} to be obedient, to be ready for[1] every good work,{2} 2to speak evil of no one,{3} to be uncontentious, forbearing,[2]{4} showing forth all meekness to all men.{5}

3For we also once were, senseless, disobedient, and led astray,{6} slaving for various lusts and pleasures,{7} living in malice[3] and envy;{8} hateful, and hating one another.{9} 4But when the kindness{10} and love of God our Savior toward man appeared,{11} 5He saved us;{12} not by works in righteousness which we had done,{13} but according to His mercy,{14} through the washing{15} of regeneration and renewal{16} of the Holy Spirit 6which He poured out on us richly{17} through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7that being justified by that grace,{18} we might become heirs{19} of[4] the hope{20} of life eternal.[5]{21}

8This word is faithful;{22} and as to these things, I desire you to affirm them strongly so that those having believed God may take thought to maintain good works.{23} These things are good and profitable to men.

9Keep them back from foolish controversies[6] and genealogies and arguments and quarrels of law;{24} for they are unprofitable and vain.[7] 10Avoid a heretic[8]{25} after one and a second warning,{26} 11knowing that such a one has been perverted by sin,[9] being self-condemned.

Final Instructions and Greetings

12When I send Artemas or Tychicus{27} to you, hasten to come to me at Nicopolis;{28} for I have decided to winter there.{29} 13Immediately send[10] Zenas the lawyer and Apollos{30} and ensure they lack nothing. 14And also let our people learn to maintain good works for necessary purposes,[11]{31} so that they will not be without fruit.{32}

15All those with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith.

Grace be with you all.{33} Amen.
