NASB — Titus 3 — KJV

Godly Living

1 aRemind them bto be subject to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be cready for every good deed, 2 to malign no one, ato be peaceable, agentle, bshowing every consideration for all men. 3 aFor we also once were foolish ourselves, bdisobedient, cdeceived, denslaved to evarious lusts and pleasures, spending our life in fmalice and fenvy, hateful, hating one another. 4 But when the akindness of bGod our Savior and [His] love for mankind cappeared, 5 aHe saved us, bnot on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but caccording to His mercy, by the dwashing of regeneration and erenewing by the Holy Spirit, 6 awhom He poured out upon us brichly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by His grace we would be made aheirs Iaccording to [the] hope of eternal life. 8 aThis is a trustworthy statement; and concerning these things I bwant you to speak confidently, so that those who have cbelieved God will be careful to dengage in good deeds. These things are good and profitable for men. 9 But aavoid bfoolish controversies and cgenealogies and strife and ddisputes about the Law, for they are eunprofitable and worthless. 10 aReject a bfactious man cafter a first and second warning, 11 knowing that such a man is aperverted and is sinning, being self-condemned.

Titus is yet further directed by Paul, both concerning the things he should teach, and not teach.

1 ¶ Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, 2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, [but] gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men. 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. 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 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; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7 That 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 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. 9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

which done, he appointeth him both time and place, wherein he should come unto him, and so concludeth.

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. 13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be wanting unto them. 14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful. 15 All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace [be] with you all. Amen. [[[It was written to Titus, ordained the first bishop of the church of the Cretians, from Nicopolis of Macedonia.]]]
