Titus is yet further directed by Paul, both concerning the things he should teach, and not teach.
Titus 3:1 Warne them that they submytte them selues to rule & power: that they obey the officers: that they be ready vnto euery good worke: Titus 3:2 þt they speake euyll of no man: that they be no fyghters, but gentle, shewynge all mekenes vnto all men. Titus 3:3 For we oure selues also were somtyme foolyshe dysobedient, deceaued, seruynge diuerse lustes and volupteousnes, lyuynge in maliciousnes and enuye, full of hate, hatynge one another. Titus 3:4 But after that the kyndnes and loue of oure saueoure God to man warde appeared, Titus 3:5 not by þe dedes of rightewesnes which we wrought, but accordynge to hys mercye he saued vs by the fountayne of the newe byrth, and renuynge of the holy goost, Titus 3:6 which he shedd on vs abountdantly, thorowe Iesus Christ oure saueoure, Titus 3:7 that we iustifyed by hys grace, shulde be made heyres accordinge to þe hope of eternall lyfe, Titus 3:8 Thys is a true sayinge. Of these thynges I wyll that thou certifye, that they which beleue in God, myght be diligent to go forwarde in good workes. For these thynges are good and profitable vnto men, Titus 3:9 Folysshe questyons, and genealogies, and braulynge, thorowe stryuinges aboute þe lawe, auoyde? for they are vnprofytable and superfluous.
He is willed also to reject obstinate hereticks:
Titus 3:10 A man that is an auctor offectes, after the fyrst & the seconde admonycion auoyde: Titus 3:11 knowynge, that he (that is soche) is peruerted & synneth euen damned by hym selfe.
which done, he appointeth him both time and place, wherein he should come unto him, and so concludeth.
Titus 3:12 When I shall sende Artemas vnto þe, or Tychicus, be diligent, to come to me vnto Nichopolis: For I haue determined there to winter, Titus 3:13 Bringe Zenas the lawear & Apollos on their iorney diligently, that nothynge be lackynge vnto them. Titus 3:14 And let oures also learne to excell in good workes, as farforth as nede requyreth, that they be not vnfrutefull. Titus 3:15 All þt are with me, salute the. Grete them þt loue vs in the fayth. Grace be with you all. Amen.
