Titus 1:1-4 Eternal Life in the Outlook

1:1 Paulos, a servant of Elohim (אֱלֹהִים), and a Shliach of Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) Mashiach, according to the emunah of the Bechirei  Elohim (אֱלֹהִים), and the acknowledging of the truth which is after chasidut  toward Elohim (אֱלֹהִים);

1:2  In hope  of Chayyei Olam (everlasting life), which Elohim (אֱלֹהִים), that cannot lie, promised before Yamim HaOlam (days of eternity);

1:3 But has in due times manifested His Word through proclaiming, which is committed to me according to the commandment of Elohim (אֱלֹהִים) Moshieynu;

1:4 To Titos, [mine] own son after the common faith:

Grace, mercy, [and] shalom, from Elohim (אֱלֹהִים) ha AVI and Adonay Yeshua (יֵשׁוּע) Mashiach Moshieynu.

1:5 The reason I left you in Krete was that you might straighten out what was left unfinished and appoint elders in every town, as I directed you.

1:6 If any be unreprovable, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.

1:7 For an overseer must be blameless, as the steward of Elohim (אֱלֹהִים); not self-pleasing, not quick tempered, not given to wine, not greedy, not given to filthy gain;

1:8 But a practice of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, Set apart, temperate;

1:9 Holding fast the trustworthy word which is in accordance has been taught, so that he may be able  both to exhort in sound teaching and both to exhort and to rebuke those who contradict it.

1:10 For there are many rebellious people, full of meaningless talk and deception, especially those of the Brit Milah group.

1:11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy gain's sake.

1:12 One of themselves, [even] a Navi of their own, said, "The Cretians (Kres) [are] alway liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons."

1:13 This eidut emet (True testimony). Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish aggadot, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

1:15 to the pure all things [are] pure: but to them that are defiled and unbelieving [is] nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

1:16 They profess that they know Elohim (אֱלֹהִים); but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and reprobate to every good work.
