Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Titus 1

For what end Titus was left in Crete.

Titus 1:1 Paul, a servant of God—an apostle moreover of Jesus Christ,—according to the faith of the chosen ones of God, and the personal knowledge of the truth that is according to godliness,— Titus 1:2 In hope of life age-abiding; which God, who cannot lie, promised before age-during times, Titus 1:3 but hath manifested in its fitting seasons, even his word, in the proclamation with which entrusted am I—by injunction of our Saviour God: Titus 1:4 Unto Titus, my true child according to a common faith,—favour and peace, from God [our] Father and Christ Jesus our Saviour. Titus 1:5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that, the things remaining undone, thou mightest completely set in order, and mightest establish, in every city, elders, as, I, with thee arranged:—

How they that are to be chosen ministers ought to be qualified.

Titus 1:6 If anyone is unaccusable, a husband of, one wife, having children that believe, who are not charged with riotous excess, nor insubordinate; Titus 1:7 For it is needful that the overseer be—unaccusable, as God's steward, not self-willed, not soon angry, not given to wine, not ready to wound, not seeking gain by base means, Titus 1:8 But hospitable, a lover of what is good, sober-minded, just, kind, possessing self-control, Titus 1:9 Holding fast, in the matter of his teaching, the faithful word, that he may be able both to encourage with his healthful instruction, and, the gainsayers, to refute. Titus 1:10 For there are many unruly men, vain talkers and deceivers, especially they of the circumcision,—

The mouths of evil teachers to be stopped:

Titus 1:11 Whose mouths must needs be stopped, men who are upsetting whole houses, teaching the things which ought not [to be taught]—for the sake of base gain.

and what manner of men they be.

Titus 1:12 Said one from among them, a prophet, of their own!—Cretans! always false, mischievous wild-beasts, idle gluttons: Titus 1:13 This witness, is true,—for which cause, be reproving them sharply, that they may be healthy in their faith, Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Judaical stories and commandments of men who are turning away from the truth: Titus 1:15 All things, are pure, unto the pure, but, unto the polluted and faithless, nothing, is pure, but polluted are both their mind and conscience; Titus 1:16 God, they confess that they know, but, by their works, they deny him, being, abominable, and obdurate, and, as to any good work, found, worthless.
