Titus 3
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

Heirs of Grace

1Remind them to be subordinate to beginnings and powers, to yield obedience to authority, to be prepared for every good work, 2To slander none, to be without fighting, equitable, showing all meekness to all men.

3For once we also were unwise disobedient, deceived, being slaves to eager desires and various pleasures, living in vexation and envy, hated, and hating one another. 4And when the kindness and philanthropy of our Saviour God was made evident, 5Not of works in justice which we did; but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and the renovation of the Holy Spirit; 6Which he poured out upon us richly by Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7That justified by his grace, we might be heirs according to the hope of eternal life. 8Faithful the word, and I wish for thee to be assured of these things, that they having believed God might turn their thoughts to excel in good works. These things are good and profitable to men.

Avoid Divisions
(Romans 16:17–20)

9And foolish questions, and genealogies, and strifes, and conflicts pertaining to the law, avoid; for they are unprofitable and vain. 10A man, a heretic after one and the second admonition, reject; 11Knowing such to be turned back, and he sins, being self-condemned.

Final Remarks and Greetings

12When I shall send Artemas to thee, or Tychicus, be earnest to come to me at Nicopolis: for there have I chosen to pass the winter. 13Send forward zealously Zenas pertaining to the law, and Apollos, that nothing fail them. 14And let ours also learn to excel in good works for necessary uses, that they be not unfruitful.

15All they with me greet thee. Greet them loving us in the faith. Grace with you all. Amen.
