1:1  Paul, a slave of God and apostle of Jesus Christ in-relation-to the faith of the chosen ones of God and the knowledge of the truth which is in-accordance-with godliness,
1:2  on-the-basis-of the hope of eternal life which the non-lying God promised before eternal times—
1:3  but He revealed His word in His own times, in the proclamation which I was entrusted-with according-to the command of our Savior God;
1:4  to Titus, genuine child according-to a common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.
1:5  For this reason I left you behind in Crete: in order that you might set-straight the things lacking, and appoint elders in each city as I directed you—
1:6  if one is blameless, a man of one woman, having believing children who are not under an accusation of wild-living or rebellious ones.
1:7  For the overseer must be blameless as God’s steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not a drunken one, not a brawler, not fond-of-shameful-gain,
1:8  but hospitable, a lover-of-good, sound-minded, just, holy, self-controlled,
1:9  holding-on-to the faithful word in accordance with the teaching, so that he may be able both to exhort with healthy teaching and refute the ones contradicting.
1:10  For there are indeed many rebellious ones, worthless-talkers, and deceivers— especially the ones from the circumcision—
1:11  whom it-is-necessary to silence, who are overturning whole households, teaching things which they ought not to teach for the sake of shameful gain.
1:12  One of them, their own prophet, said “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons”.
1:13  This testimony is true. For which reason, be rebuking them severely in order that they may be healthy in the faith,
1:14  not paying-attention-to Jewish myths and commandments of people turning-away-from the truth.
1:15  All things are clean to the clean. But to the ones having been defiled and who are unbelieving, nothing is clean, but both their mind and conscience have been defiled.
1:16  They are confessing to know God, but by their works they are denying Him, being detestable and disobedient and disapproved for every good work.
