Titus 1:5-9 - New American Standard (1995)
5
For this reason I left you in Crete, that you would set in order what remains and appoint elders in every city as I directed you,
6
[namely], if any man is above reproach, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of dissipation or rebellion.
7
For the overseer must be above reproach as God's steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain,
8
but hospitable, loving what is good, sensible, just, devout, self-controlled,
9
holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict.
