Titus Chapters

1 It is for you, then, to preach the behaviour which goes with healthy doctrine.

2 Older men should be reserved, dignified, moderate, sound in faith and love and perseverance.

3 Similarly, older women should behave as befits religious people, with no scandal-mongering and no addiction to wine -- they must be the teachers of right behaviour

4 and show younger women how they should love their husbands and love their children,

5 how they must be sensible and chaste, and how to work in their homes, and be gentle, and obey their husbands, so that the message of God is not disgraced.

6 Similarly, urge younger men to be moderate in everything that they do,

7 and you yourself set an example of good works, by sincerity and earnestness, when you are teaching, and by a message sound and irreproachable

8 so that any opponent will be at a loss, with no accusation to make against us.

9 Slaves must be obedient to their masters in everything, and do what is wanted without argument;

10 and there must be no pilfering -- they must show complete honesty at all times, so that they are in every way a credit to the teaching of God our Saviour.

11 You see, God's grace has been revealed to save the whole human race;

12 it has taught us that we should give up everything contrary to true religion and all our worldly passions; we must be self-restrained and live upright and religious lives in this present world,

13 waiting in hope for the blessing which will come with the appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour Christ Jesus.

14 He offered himself for us in order to ransom us from all our faults and to purify a people to be his very own and eager to do good.

15 This is what you must say, encouraging or arguing with full authority; no one should despise you.

New Jerusalem Bible

New Jerusalem Bible

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.

Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
