Chapter 3

Titus 3:1 Remind them to be in submission to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,

Titus 3:2 to speak against no one, to not be belligerent, but gentle, showing all clemency to all men.

Titus 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, in bondage to numerous lusts and pleasures, passing through life in evil and envy, despicable, and hating one another.

Titus 3:4 But when the kindness and friendship of God our Savior for men illuminated us,

Titus 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 Spirit;

Titus 3:6 which He pours out on us lavishly through Jesus Christ our Savior;

Titus 3:7 that being justified by His grace, we begin to become heirs according to the expectation of infinite life.

Titus 3:8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that they who have believed God consider practicing good works. These things are good and profitable to men.

Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless.

Titus 3:10 A man that is causing formal divisions by opinion, after the first and second warning, reject;

Titus 3:11 knowing that he that is such has turned out of the way and continually sins, being self-condemned.

Titus 3:12 When I send Artemas to you, or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me at Nicopolis: for I am determined to winter there.

Titus 3:13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey with speed, that they may be lacking in nothing.

Titus 3:14 Let ours also learn to preside in honorable occupations for the essential needs, that they be not unfruitful.

Titus 3:15 All that are with me greet you. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
