whom he poured out on us in full measure[a] through Jesus Christ our Savior. And so,[b] since we have been justified by his grace, we become heirs with the confident expectation of eternal life.”[c]

Summary of the Letter

This saying[d] is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on such truths,[e] so that those who have placed their faith in God may be intent on engaging in good works. These things are good and beneficial for all people.


  1. Titus 3:6 tn Or “on us richly.”
  2. Titus 3:7 tn This is the conclusion of a single, skillfully composed sentence in Greek encompassing Titus 3:4-7. Showing the goal of God’s merciful salvation, v. 7 begins literally, “in order that, being justified…we might become heirs…”
  3. Titus 3:7 tn Grk “heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”
  4. Titus 3:8 sn This saying (Grk “the saying”) refers to the preceding citation (Titus 3:4-7). See 1 Tim 1:15; 3:1; 4:9; 2 Tim 2:11 for other occurrences of this phrase.
  5. Titus 3:8 tn Grk “concerning these things.”
