||Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;
||Paul sharvaant Yee; as ostyl Yeesey Creest, son credjue cloan reiht Yee, as goaill-rish yn irriney, ta cordail rish craueeaght:
||In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
||Ayns treishteil jeh'n vea veayn, ren Jee nagh vod breg y insh, gialdyn roish my row'n seihll er ny chroo;
||But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;
||Agh t'eh ayns imbaghyn cooie er hoilshaghey e ghoo trooid preacheil [y tushtal,] v'er ny choyrt er my churrym, cordail rish sarey Yee nyn Saualtagh:
||To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
||Gys Titus my Vac hene lurg y chredjue cadjin: Grayse, myghin, as shee voish Jee nyn Ayr, as y Chiarn Yeesey Creest nyn Saualtagh.
||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:
||Son yn oyr shoh daag mee oo ayns Crete, dy chiartaghey ny reddyn ta ergooyl, as dy phointeil shirveishee ayns dagh ard-valley, myr doardee mee dhyt.
||If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly.
||Lheid as ta gyn foill, sheshey un ven, as e chloan crauee, nagh vel er ny chassid jeh rouanys ny mee-reiltys.
||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;
||Son shegin da aspick ve gyn foill, myr stiurt Yee; cha nee mooaralagh, ny leah fargagh, cha nee cur rish feeyn, ny builltagh, ny soit er cosney scammyltagh;
||But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;
||Agh arryltagh dy choyrt oltaghey-bea, carrey da deiney mie, soccaragh, cairagh, crauee, sheelt;
||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.
||Cummal shickyr yn goo firrinagh, myr te er ve ynsit da, dy vod eh ve abyl liorish ynsagh fondagh, chammah dy choyrlaghey as dy choyrt nyn-dhost adsyn ta loayrt noi'n chredjue.
||For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
||Son ta ayn ymmodee mee-reilltee, branladee, as molteyryn, erskyn ooilley adsyn ta jeh'n ghiarey-chymmylt:
||Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
||Ny beill oc sheign y yeigh, ta cur slane lughtyn-thie fo-my-cheilley, gynsaghey reddyn nagh lhisagh ad er graih drogh chosney.
||One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
||Dooyrt fer jeh ny fir-ynsee oc hene, Va ny Cretianee rieau nyn mreageryn, broutyn, beishtagh, gluttyryn litcheragh.
||This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
||Ta'n feanish shoh firrinagh, shen-y-fa cur oghsan gyere daue dy vod ad ve shickyr 'sy chredjue.
||Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
||Nagh der ad geill da skeeallyn Hewagh, as oardaghyn deiney, ta chyndaa veih'n ynrickys.
||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.
||Dauesyn ta glen ta dy chooilley nhee glen, agh dauesyn ta neu-ghlen, as mee-chredjuagh, cha vel nhee erbee glen; agh ta eer nyn aigney as nyn gooinsheanse neu-ghlen.
||They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
||T'ad goaill orroo dy vel tushtey oc dy Yee; agh ayns nyn obbraghyn t'ad gobbal eh, feohdoil as mee-viallagh, as noi dy chooilley obbyr vie er nyn groghey.
