The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
A.D. 1749-1752





THE EPISTLE OF ST. PAUL TO TITUS

St. Paul, having preached the faith in the island of Crete, he ordained
his beloved disciple and companion, Titus, bishop, and left him there to
finish the work which he had begun. Afterwards the Apostle, on a journey
to Nicopolis, a city of Macedonia, wrote this Epistle to Titus, in which
he directs him to ordain bishops and priests for the different cities,
shewing him the principal qualities necessary for a bishop. He also
gives him particular advice for his own conduct to his flock, exhorting
him to hold to strictness of discipline, but seasoned with lenity. It
was written about thirty-three years after our Lord's Ascension.


Titus Chapter 1

What kind of men he is to ordain priests. Some men are to be sharply
rebuked.

1:1. Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to
the faith of the elect of God and the acknowledging of the truth, which
is according to godliness:

1:2. Unto the hope of life everlasting, which God, who lieth not, hath
promised before the times of the world:

1:3. But hath in due times manifested his word in preaching, which is
committed to me according to the commandment of God our Saviour:

1:4. To Titus, my beloved son according to the common faith, grace and
peace, from God the Father and from Christ Jesus our Saviour.

1:5. For this cause I left thee in Crete: that thou shouldest set in
order the things that are wanting and shouldest ordain priests in every
city, as I also appointed thee:

1:6. If any be without crime, the husband of one wife having faithful
children, not accused of riot or unruly.

1:7. For a bishop must be without crime, as the steward of God: not
proud, not subject to anger, nor given to wine, no striker, not greedy
of filthy lucre:

1:8. But given to hospitality, gentle, sober, just, holy, continent:

1:9. Embracing that faithful word which is according to doctrine, that
he may be able to exhort in sound doctrine and to convince the
gainsayers.

1:10. For there are also many disobedient, vain talkers and seducers:
especially they who are of the circumcision.

1:11. Who must be reproved, who subvert whole houses, teaching things
which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.

1:12. One of them a prophet of their own, said: The Cretans are always
liars, evil beasts, slothful bellies.

1:13. This testimony is true. Wherefore, rebuke them sharply, that they
may be sound in the faith:

1:14. Not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn
themselves away from the truth.

1:15. All things are clean to the clean: but to them that are defiled
and to unbelievers, nothing is clean: but both their mind and their
conscience are defiled.

1:16. They profess that they know God: but in their works they deny him:
being abominable and incredulous and to every good work reprobate.
