Titus 3Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Be Ready for Good Deeds
3 Remind the people to be submitted to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good deed, 2 to slander no one, without fighting, gentle, showing every courtesy to all people. 3 For we also once were foolish, disobedient, deluded, enslaved to various desires and pleasures, spending our lives in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another.

15 All who are with me greet you. Greet those who love us in the faith. Grace be with you all.
