1:5 For cause of this thing I left thee at Crete, that thou amend those things that fail, and ordain priests by cities, as and I disposed to thee. For this cause left I thee in Creta, that thou shouldest perform that which was lacking and shouldest ordain seniors in every city as I appointed thee. For this cause left I thee in Creta, that thou shouldest continue to redress the things that remain, and shouldest ordain Elders in every city, as I appointed thee, For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain Elders in every city, as I had appointed thee.
1:6 If any man is without crime, husband of one wife, having faithful sons, not in accusation of lechery, or not subject. If any be such as no man can complain on, the husband of one wife, having faithful children, which are not slandered of riot, neither are disobedient. If any be unreproveable, the husband of one wife, having faithful children, which are not slandered of riot, neither are disobedient. If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children, not accused of riot, or unruly.
1:7 For it behooveth a bishop to be without crime, as a dispenser of God, not proud, not wrathful, not vinolent, not a smiter, not covetous of foul winning; For a bishop must be such as no man can complain on, as it becometh the minister of God not stubborn, not angry, no drunkard, no fighter, not given to filthy lucre: For a bishop must be unreproveable, as God’s steward, not froward, not angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre, For a Bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God: not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre,

1:9 embracing that true word, that is after doctrine; that he be mighty to admonish in wholesome doctrine, and to reprove them that against-say. and such as cleaveth unto the true word of doctrine, that he may be able to exhort with wholesome learning, and to improve them that say against it. Holding fast the faithful word according to doctrine, that he also may be able to exhort with wholesome doctrine, and improve them that say against it. Holding fast the faithful word, as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine, both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.
1:10 For there be many unobedient, and vain speakers, and deceivers, most they that be of circumcision, For there are many disobedient and talkers of vanity, and deceivers of minds, namely they of the circumcision, For there are many disobedient & vain talkers and deceivers of minds, chiefly they of the Circumcision, For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
1:11 whom it behooveth to be reproved; which subvert all houses, teaching which things it behooveth not, for the love of foul winning. whose mouths must be stopped, which pervert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, because of filthy lucre. Whose mouths must be stopped, which subvert whole houses, teaching things, which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake. Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.
1:12 Some one of them, the proper prophet of them, said, said, Men of Crete be evermore liars, evil beasts, slow of womb. One being of themselves, which was a poet of their own said: The Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, and slowbellies. One of themselves, even one of their own prophets said, The Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. One of themselves, even a Prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
1:13 This witnessing is true. For which cause blame them sore, that they be whole in faith, This witness is true, wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, This witness is true: wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, This witness is true: wherefore rebuke them sharply that they may be sound in the faith;
1:14 not giving attention to fables of Jews, and to commandments of men, turning them away from truth. and not taking heed to jews’ fables, and commandments of men, which turn from the truth. And not taking heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men that turn from the truth.
1:15 And all things be clean to clean men; but to unclean men and to unfaithful nothing is clean, but and the soul, and conscience of them be made unclean. Unto the pure, are all things pure: but unto them that are defiled, and unbelieving, is nothing pure: but even the very minds and consciences of them are defiled. Unto the pure are all things pure, but unto them that are defiled, and unbelieving, is nothing pure, but even their minds and consciences are defiled. Unto the pure all things are pure, but unto them that are defiled, and unbelieving, is nothing pure: but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
1:16 They acknowledge that they know God, but by deeds they deny him; when they be abominable, and unbelieveful, and reproveable to all good works. They confess that they know god: but with deeds they deny him and are abominable, and disobedient, and unto all good works discommendable. They profess that they know God, but by works they deny him, and are abominable and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
