Titus 3
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1REMIND all to be obedient and submissive to princes and governors, and to be ready for every good work, 2And not to speak evil against any man, and not to be quarrelsome, but to be meek, in every respect showing gentleness to all men.

3For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, misled, and serving divers lusts and passions, living in malice and envy, hated, and also hating one another. 4But after the goodness and kindness of God our Saviour was manifested, 5Not so much 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; 6Which he shed on us abundantly, through Jesus Christ our Saviour, 7That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs to the hope of eternal life. 8This is a true saying, and these things I want you to constantly affirm, so that those who believe in God may be careful to continually do good works. These things are good and profitable to men.

9But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and the theological arguments of the scribes, for they are unprofitable and vain. 10After you have admonished the heretic once or twice shun him; 11Knowing that he who is such is corrupt; he sins and condemns himself.

12When I send Ar’te-mas or Tych’i-cus to you, endeavor to come to me at Ni-cop’olis: for I have decided to winter there. 13See that Ze’nas, the scribe, and A-pol’los are given a good farewell on their journey, that they lack nothing. 14And let our people be taught to do good works in times of emergency, that they be not unfruitful.

15All who are with me salute you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all. Amen.
