Put <G5279> <G0000> them <G0846> in mind <G5279> <G5720> to be subject <G5293> <G5733> to principalities <G0746> and <G2532> powers <G1849>, to obey magistrates <G3980> <G5721>, to be <G1511> <G5750> ready <G2092> to <G4314> every <G3956> good <G0018> work <G2041>,
2
To speak evil of <G0987> <G5721> no man <G3367>, to be <G1511> <G5750> no brawlers <G0269>, [but] gentle <G1933>, shewing <G1731> <G5734> all <G3956> meekness <G4236> unto <G4314> all <G3956> men <G0444>.
3
For <G1063> we ourselves <G2249> also <G2532> were <G2258> <G5713> <G0453> <G0000> sometimes <G4218> foolish <G0453>, disobedient <G0545>, deceived <G4105> <G5746>, serving <G1398> <G5723> divers <G4164> lusts <G1939> and <G2532> pleasures <G2237>, living <G1236> <G5723> in <G1722> malice <G2549> and <G2532> envy <G5355>, hateful <G4767>, [and] hating <G3404> <G5723> one another <G0240>.
4
But <G1161> after <G3753> that the kindness <G5544> and <G2532> love <G5363> <G0000> of God <G2316> our <G2257> Saviour <G4990> toward man <G5363> appeared <G2014> <G5648>,
5
Not <G3756> by <G1537> works <G2041> of <G1722> righteousness <G1343> which <G3739> we <G2249> have done <G4160> <G5656>, but <G0235> according to <G2596> his <G0848> mercy <G1656> he saved <G4982> <G5656> us <G2248>, by <G1223> the washing <G3067> of regeneration <G3824>, and <G2532> renewing <G0342> of the Holy <G0040> Ghost <G4151>;
6
Which <G3739> he shed <G1632> <G5656> on <G1909> us <G2248> abundantly <G4146> through <G1223> Jesus <G2424> Christ <G5547> our <G2257> Saviour <G4990>;
7
That <G2443> being justified by <G1344> <G5685> his <G1565> grace <G5485>, we should be made <G1096> <G5638> heirs <G2818> according to <G2596> the hope <G1680> of eternal <G0166> life <G2222>.

[This is] a faithful <G4103> saying <G3056>, and <G2532> these things <G4012> <G5130> I will <G1014> <G5736> that thou <G4571> affirm constantly <G1226> <G5738>, that <G2443> they which have believed <G4100> <G5761> in God <G2316> might be careful <G5431> <G5725> to maintain <G4291> <G5733> good <G2570> works <G2041>. These things <G5023> are <G2076> <G5748> good <G2570> and <G2532> profitable <G5624> unto men <G0444>.
9
But <G1161> avoid <G4026> <G5732> foolish <G3474> questions <G2214>, and <G2532> genealogies <G1076>, and <G2532> contentions <G2054>, and <G2532> strivings about <G3163> the law <G3544>; for <G1063> they are <G1526> <G5748> unprofitable <G0512> and <G2532> vain <G3152>.
10
A man <G0444> that is an heretick <G0141> after <G3326> the first <G3391> and <G2532> second <G1208> admonition <G3559> reject <G3868> <G5737>;
11
Knowing <G1492> <G5761> that <G3754> he that is such <G5108> is subverted <G1612> <G5769>, and <G2532> sinneth <G0264> <G5719>, being <G5607> <G5752> condemned of himself <G0843>.
12
When <G3752> I shall send <G3992> <G5692> Artemas <G0734> unto <G4314> thee <G4571>, or <G2228> Tychicus <G5190>, be diligent <G4704> <G5657> to come <G2064> <G5629> unto <G4314> me <G3165> to <G1519> Nicopolis <G3533>: for <G1063> I have determined <G2919> <G5758> there <G1563> to winter <G3914> <G5658>.
13
Bring <G4311> <G0000> Zenas <G2211> the lawyer <G3544> and <G2532> Apollos <G0625> on their journey <G4311> <G5657> diligently <G4709>, that <G2443> nothing <G3367> be wanting <G3007> <G5725> unto them <G0846>.
14
And <G1161> let <G3129> <G0000> ours <G2251> also <G2532> learn <G3129> <G5720> to maintain <G4291> <G5733> good <G2570> works <G2041> for <G1519> necessary <G0316> uses <G5532>, that <G3363> <G0000> they be <G5600> <G5753> not <G3363> unfruitful <G0175>.
15
All <G3956> that are with <G3326> me <G1700> salute <G0782> <G5736> thee <G4571>. Greet <G0782> <G5663> them that love <G5368> <G5723> us <G2248> in <G1722> the faith <G4102>. Grace <G5485> [be] with <G3326> you <G5216> all <G3956>. Amen <G0281>. <The following was added by editors of the KJV:[It was written <G1125> <G5648> to <G4314> Titus <G5103>, ordained <G5500> <G5685> the first <G4413> bishop <G1985> of the church <G1577> of the Cretians <G2912>, from <G0575> Nicopolis <G3533> of Macedonia <G3109>>
