The King James Clarified (KJC) New Testament
The Letter Of Paul The Apostle To Titus
- 1:1 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;
- 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
- 1:3 But has in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto
me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
- 1:4 To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God
the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
- 1:5 For this cause left I you in Crete, that you should set in order the things that are
wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed you:
- 1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of
riot or unruly.
- 1:7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not self willed, not soon
angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
- 1:8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
- 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he has been taught, that he may be able by sound
doctrine both to exhort and to convince the opponents.
- 1:10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the
- 1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which
they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
- 1:12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are always liars,
evil beasts, slow bellies.
- 1:13 This witness is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the
- 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the
- 1:15 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.
- 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable,
and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
- 2:1 But speak you the things which become sound doctrine: 2:2 That the aged men be
sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience.
- 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becomes holiness, not false
accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
- 2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love
- 2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that
the word of God be not blasphemed.
- 2:6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
- 2:7 In all things showing yourself a pattern of good works: in doctrine showing
uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
- 2:8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be
ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
- 2:9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to please them well in all
things; not talking back;
- 2:10 Not stealing, but showing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God
our Saviour in all things.
- 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,
- 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly, in this present world;
- 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our
Saviour Jesus Christ;
- 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto
himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
- 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise
- 3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be
ready to every good work,
- 3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all
- 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving
different lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
- 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
- 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 Ghost;
- 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
- 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of
- 3:8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that you affirm constantly, that they
which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works. These things are
good and profitable unto men.
- 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the
law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
- 3:10 A man that is a heretic after the first and second admonition reject;
- 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sins, being condemned of himself.
- 3:12 When I shall send Areemas unto you, or Tychicus, be diligent to come unto me to
Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter.
- 3:13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently, that nothing be
wanting unto them.
- 3:14 And let our's also learn to maintain good works for necessary uses, that they be not
- 3:15 All that are with me salute you. Greet them that love us in the faith. Grace be with
you all. Amen.
