If any one is blameless
, the husband of one wife, having believing children, not accused of licentiousness, not disobedient.
a bishop ought to be blameless
, as a governor of the house of God; not self-willed, not passionate,
not given to wine
, not a striker, not wickedly desirous of gain;
devoted to kindness
, prudent, just, holy, temperate;
Holding fast the faithful word, which is according to instruction, that he maybe able both
to exhort by sound doctrine
, and to convince adversaries.
For there are many unruly,
and vain talkers, and deceivers of minds’ chiefly they who are of the circumcision;
Whose month must be stopped
, who overturn whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for the sake of dishonest gain.
One of themselves,
a prophet of their own
, said, The Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy bellies.
This testimony is true;
wherefore rebuke them sharply
, that they may be sound in the faith,
And may not give heed to Jewish fables, and to commandments of men who turn aside from the truth.
To the pure all things indeed are pure; but to the polluted and
unbelieving nothing is pure
, but their mind and conscience are polluted.
They profess that they know God, but in works they deny him; for they are abominable,
, and to every good work reprobate.
