Titus - Chapter 3 | New King James Version

  • 1. Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work,
  • 2. to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.
  • 3. For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.
  • 4. But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared,
  • 5. not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit,
  • 6. whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
  • 7. that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
  • 8. This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men.
  • 9. But avoid foolish disputes, genealogies, contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and useless.
  • 10. Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition,
  • 11. knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.
  • 12. When I send Artemas to you, or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there.
  • 13. Send Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey with haste, that they may lack nothing.
  • 14. And let our people also learn to maintain good works, to meet urgent needs, that they may not be unfruitful.
  • 15. All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
