Titus 3:1-11 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Of obedience to persons in authority. Of gentleness to all people. He warns Titus to beware of foolish and unprofitable questions.

Warn the people to submit themselves to rule and authority, to obey the officials, to be ready for all good works, to speak evil of no one, and not to be fighters, but soft, showing all gentleness to all people. For we ourselves also were in times past unwise: disobedient, deceived; captive to desires, lusts, and diverse kinds of sensuality; living in maliciousness and envy, full of hate, hating one another.

But after the kindness and love of our Saviour God toward man appeared, he saved us – not for the deeds of righteousness that we have done, but of his mercy, by the fountain of the new birth, and with the renewing of the Holy Spirit, which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour, so that we, once justified by his grace, should be heirs of eternal life through hope.  This is a true saying.

These things I want you to affirm constantly, so that those who believe God may be diligent to go forward in good works. These things are good and profitable to people. Foolish questions and genealogies, and brawling and strife about the law, avoid. For they are unprofitable and superfluous.

10 A person who is given to heresy, after the first and the second admonition, avoid, 11 remembering that such a one has been perverted, and sins, even condemned by his own judgment.
