Qualifications of Elders

5 ¶ For this reason I left you in aCrete, that you would set in order what remains and bappoint celders in every city as I directed you, 6 [namely], aif any man is above reproach, the bhusband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of cdissipation or drebellion. 7 For the Iaoverseer must be above reproach as bGod’s steward, not cself-willed, not quick-tempered, not daddicted to wine, not pugnacious, enot fond of sordid gain, 8 but ahospitable, bloving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled, 9 aholding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in bsound doctrine and to refute those who contradict.

10aFor there are many brebellious men, cempty talkers and deceivers, especially dthose of the circumcision, 11 who must be silenced because they are upsetting awhole families, teaching bthings they should not [teach] cfor the sake of sordid gain. 12 One of themselves, a prophet of their own, said, “aCretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.” 13 This testimony is true. For this reason areprove them bseverely so that they may be csound in the faith, 14 not paying attention to Jewish amyths and bcommandments of men who cturn away from the truth. 15 aTo the pure, all things are pure; but bto those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their cmind and their conscience are defiled. 16 aThey profess to know God, but by [their] deeds they bdeny [Him], being cdetestable and ddisobedient and eworthless ffor any good deed.

For what end Titus was left in Crete.

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; 2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; 3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour; 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. 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:

How they that are to be chosen ministers ought to be qualified.

6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. 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; 8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; 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. 10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

The mouths of evil teachers to be stopped:

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

and what manner of men they be.

12 One of themselves, [even] a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians [are] alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. 13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; 14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. 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. 16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
