Titus 1:1-4 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)
1 Paul, the servant of God, and apostle of Jesus Christ, by the faith of the chosen of God, and by the knowing of the truth [after the faith of the chosen of God, and knowing of the truth], which is after piety,
2 into the hope of everlasting life [in hope of everlasting life], which life God that lieth not, promised before times of the world [before worldly times];
3 but he hath showed in his times his word in preaching, that is betaken to me by the commandment of God, our Saviour [after the commandment of our Saviour God],
4 to Titus, most dear-worthy son by the common faith [to Titus, beloved son after the common faith], grace and peace of God the Father, and of Christ Jesus, our Saviour.
Titus 1:1-4 New Matthew Bible (NMB)
Paul exhorts Titus to ordain priests or bishops in every city, declares what manner of men they ought to be that are chosen to that office, and charges Titus to rebuke such persons as withstand the gospel.
1 Paul the servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ to preach the faith of God’s elect and the knowledge of the truth, which leads to godliness 2 in the hope of eternal life. Which life God, who cannot lie, promised before the world began, 3 but has declared his word openly at the time appointed through preaching, which preaching is committed to me by the commandment of God our Saviour.
4 To Titus, his true-born son in the common faith.
Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
